Discovering the Secret Beaches of Halong Bay: A Hidden Paradise in Vietnam

Going on beach vacations can be fun and exciting. You get the chance to soak up the sun, take a dip in the ocean, and just enjoy the warm seaside air. But there is also a problem with most beaches — they are crowded with tourists and locals. And even if you’re not an introvert, that could easily become a problem. Especially if you’re looking for some privacy and a few quiet moments to unwind from your everyday life. So, if you’re looking for a hidden place where you can enjoy a heavenly break from the real world, then the secret beaches of Halong Bay might just be what you’re looking for.

The mysterious Butterfly Beach

Tucked away in a hidden corner of Halong Bay, Butterfly Beach is a hidden treasure just waiting to be discovered. This secret beauty gets its name from the colorful butterflies that fly by its gorgeous greenery each day. To reach this beach, you’ll need to embark on a small boat from Tuan Chau Marina. As you approach the beach, you’ll be captivated by the pristine white sand and the crystal-clear waters that gently lap against the shore. Relax on the beach, take a refreshing swim, or simply soak in the peaceful atmosphere that surrounds this truly magical place.

Peaceful hideaways for serene holidays

Escape the hustle and bustle of Halong City and head to Bai Chay’s hidden beach, a serene hideaway that offers a glimpse into some of Vietnam’s most gorgeous landscapes. Located just a short distance from the main tourist hub, this secret beach is accessible by boat or kayak. Feel the cool breeze on your face as you paddle through the calm waters, passing picturesque rock formations along the way. Once you reach the beach, you’ll be greeted by a peaceful stretch of sand, perfect for sunbathing or a quiet picnic. Immerse yourself in the serenity of Bai Chay’s hidden gem, far from the crowds.


Ti Top Island — the ideal place for a retreat

For those in need of some privacy and quiet alone time, Ti Top Island is the ideal place to go. Located in the heart of Halong Bay, this hidden paradise offers a gorgeous beach that’s surrounded by towering cliffs. The island’s beach is accessible via a short hike up a series of stone steps. While that does sound a bit demanding, you’ll be rewarded with some of the most beautiful sights you’ll ever experience. And once you arrive at the beach, you can enjoy the turquoise water and powdery beaches. Take a refreshing dip in the ocean, meditate on the beach, or simply lay down and enjoy the sunshine. Also — make sure to turn off your notifications and enjoy the moment while in Vietnam.

Ba Trai Dao — A hidden beach untouched by mass tourism

Ba Trai Dao, meaning “Three Peaches,” is a group of three small islands in Halong Bay. The smallest island is home to a hidden beach. And when I say hidden, I really mean it. This mysterious place is pretty much completely untouched by mass tourism. Reaching this secret beach requires a bit of adventure, as you’ll need to take a kayak or even book a tour. But all of that will be more than worth it once you arrive at this magical destination.
