 Halong Beaches

Ngọc Vừng Beach

Ngọc Vừng is one of the offshore beach which is still kept pristine and unspoilt. Situated to the south of Ngọc Vừng Island, some 34 km southeast of the tourist boat wharf, this beach boasts clear waters all year round. Its 3-km sandy stretch sparkles in the sunlight. Apart from swimming and sightseeing, tourists can also enjoy fresh delicious seafood supplied by local fishermen.

Ngọc Vừng Island

Ngọc Vừng, or Gem Island, is a pretty site sitting between the Nt Islet and Phượng Hong (Phoenix) Island, in the Vn ồn District. From above, Ngọc Vừng looks like a beautiful velvet handkerchief with exquisite white edgings; it seems to float on the water surface. On the east side of the island there is a kilometres-beach with pure white sand. At the centre is a luxuriant benjamin fig tree; it was under this tree that Hồ Ch Minh stood and conversed with the population in 1962 during a visit.

Formerly, under the feudal dynasties, this island zone contained a great quantity of rare and precious species of mother-of-pearls. At night, fluorescent pearls would light up the whole region. So there are several islands having name Ngọc such as Ngọc Vừng (dazzling pearl), Minh Chu (Ngọc Chu)...

During the war against the US, the island belonged to a front of outward islands that served as protection for the eastern waterways.

It is also on the beach that many stone artefacts were discovered in 1937, opening a string of excavations and archaeological research aiming at providing some explanations of the mysteries of the ancient Hạ Long culture.
