Legend of the Islet

Besides the impressive view, Ba Trai Dao Islet’s romantic legend also charmed tourists for a stop. It is told that long ago, the youngest fairy of Heaven had a crush on a poor fisherman who daily fishes on Halong Bay. Desiring the man to be immortal and live with her forever, the fairy stole three peaches from Heaven.

However, the King of Heaven was upset finding out about the event and turn the three peaches into three islands on Halong Bay to separate the couple. From that time, the fairy and the fishermen never made it to be together.

Regardless of the sad love story, couples all over the world still row kayaks to the islet for a good time spent on the primitive beach or go swimming in the extremely clean, fresh water on Ba Trai Dao beach.

Famous for its very clear and clean water, the beach here is not too busy with tourists, the scenery is very poetic and the sea water is clear and clean, clearly illuminating the fine white sand below. Therefore, besides beach tourism, this is also a check-in point that many visitors enjoy.

Compared to other beaches in Halong Bay, the water here is somewhat shallower, just knee-deep. On sunny days, looking through the emerald water, you can even see the bottom of the sea.
