Catba Beaches

Cat Ba town has three beaches within walking – or golf buggy – distance. The first beach is called Cat Co 3 — you can reach it by following the harbour road west until it ends, and then going over the headland (if you’re on a motorbike, they’ll charge you 5,000 VND to park it at the base). Here you’ll find Sunrise Resort, but the beach in front of it is open to the public.

If you head west on the harbour road but turn up the hill on the left before the Harbour View Hotel, you’ll reach Cat Co 1 – straight ahead – and Cat Co 2 by turning left towards Cat Co Beach Resort. Both are quieter than Cat Co 3.You can also walk to Cat Co 1 from Cat Co 3, and it’s worth the walk, with fantastic views over the bay and the beach from the cliff-edge path.

In Cat Ba, there are hundreds of large and small beaches, but Cat Co beaches (Cat Co 1, 2, 3) are tourists’ favorite destination because of the diverse and natural landscape

Cat Co 1 beach is the widest beach, surrounded around by mountains, and there are waves all year round, with fresh air and clear blue water. This is the most popular beach. Cat Co 2 beach, however, is a little serenity and mystery. Cat Co 3 beach is very different from the other two.

After swimming, and relaxing on sandy beaches or enjoying drinks and seafood specialties, tourists will feel all the beauty of the sea, especially at sunset.

All beaches have umbrellas, loungers and chairs for rent and drinks are available.
