When coming to this most beautiful island in North Vietnam, you will experience many unique cultural features of anglers in the sea here. Their houses and lifestyles are still relatively simple and rustic. Pictures of boats turning waves to the sea or images of people sailing seafood under the bright yellow sun, everything is strangely peaceful.
On Quan Lan island, there are three beaches: Quan Lan beach, Son Hao beach, and Minh Chau beach. All beaches here have long white sandy shores, surrounded by immense green forests.

Co To island
Co To Island is lovely, the beaches here, whether it’s a beach or a fishing ground, the water here is still evident. The remarkable thing is that at different times, the color of the sea changes from afar, Co To seawater has a light blue color, blending with the blue of the sky to create a fresh, natural picture.
On this most beautiful island in the North, everything is gentle and gentle, even the salty smell of the sea. On other beaches, you can smell the typical salty smell of the ocean from afar, but Not in Co To. To smell the saltiness of the sea, you have to get very close, close your eyes, and take a deep breath to feel the salty taste.
The scene in Co To Island in Quang Ninh is exceptionally peaceful and quite deserted. It seems that the whole world is only you, the sea and the sky, where we can rest, relax and think about the past, or get rid of all the worries of life. Let your mind rest for a few days, re-balance everything.
When coming to this beautiful island in Quang Ninh, what creates complete joy for visitors is the enthusiasm, hospitality, and extremely friendliness of the people here. Everyone seems to be as gentle and close as the scene itself.
Ngoc Vung Island
Although it is only a small island, Ngoc Vung Island has an extremely diverse terrain, with forests, seas, and plains. Not only possessing a new and rare natural beauty that can be found anywhere else, but Ngoc Vung is also a place to keep many historical relics of Van Don trading port, giving visitors a sense of curiosity to explore.
The unique feature of this most beautiful island in the North is its pristine beach with fine sand, along with green casuarina groves. And Truong Chinh beach is one of the most beautiful beaches in Ngoc Vung island. Here visitors can comfortably soak in the cool water to relax.
The next destination on Ngoc Vung island is Cong Yen wharf, which used to be one of the crucial marinas in the Van Don trading port system. Ships that want to go back and forth, exchange, and exchange goods must go through Cong Yen wharf to reach the center of the trading port. Therefore, it can be said that the Cong Yen wharf is a factor contributing to the development of Vietnam’s economy.
In Ngoc Vung Island, there is a small concrete road leading to the beaches around the island. Therefore, visitors can rent bicycles to explore this island comfortably. You can cycle around the island, breathe in the fresh air, and admire the beautiful natural scenery. There are few islands where tourists can cycle to visit, close to nature like in Ngoc Vung.
According to Quang Ninh’s travel experience, camping on the island is also considered an exciting activity for you on beautiful days. People can prepare their tents, light a fire on the beach, have a BBQ, and organize fun games.
