Ha Long bay covers an area of 1,500sq.km. Among the several beaches along its winding coastline is Bai Chay, located just north of Cat Ba island. The reserve of marine life in the bay is flourishing and offers great potential for snorkeling.

The area is filled with thousands of islands of all shapes and sizes" most getting their names from their unusual shapes, such as Voi island (elephant), Ga Choi island (fighting cocks) and Mai Nha island (Roof).

VIRGIN & MALE GROTTO: The Virgin grotto is situated on Bo Hon islet, 15km south of Bai Chay beach. It runs winding through the heart of the island it occupies for more than 2km.

When visiting the Virgin Grotto, you can still see the petrified girl with her long hair hanging down and eyes looking towards the mainland. Opposite, the Male Grotto is still home to the lover, whose face is turned towards his mate. At times, his passionate calls and blows against the walls of the grotto can still be heard.
