2. Top things to do in Minh Chau Beach?

Minh Chau Beach is about 1.5km long, the beach is very comfortable and the sand is very fine, suitable for everyone to play sports and swim in the sea. The waves here are very gentle, so it is suitable for both the elderly and young children to bathe, as well as for those who want to practice swimming at sea.

At Minh Chau beach, visitors can relax on camping, have fun on the island and learn more about the daily marine life available at the beach, participate in and organize sea games, and watch the sea at night in the calm and beautiful space of the sea.

Here visitors can both swim in the sea and enjoy the special flavours of the sea during their exciting trip in Halong Bay.

2.1. Crystal dunes

A place that is very popular with young people when coming to Minh Chau Island is the crystal sandhill. This is a beautiful sandhill with romantic white glass. This sand hill is created by the flow of Cua Mai and Cua Doi. The sand here is quite soft and spongy, so the feeling of walking barefoot on the sand is extremely interesting.

2.2. Tram forest

Minh Chau Island is an island that has long been famous for its perennial forests. There are many trees here that are more than 100 years old. According to the noble people living on the island recounted, this Tram forest was planted by the people who first arrived on this island. Tram forest on the island covers an area of about 14 hectares and is a popular tourist destination.

2.3. Eo Gio Got Beo

Got Beo, also known as Bai Got, is a famous sightseeing and check-in destination on Minh Chau Island. This is a mountain top facing the sea. Standing from the top of this mountain, you can zoom out into the distance, admire magnificent natural scenery, and unique poetry.

3. How to get there?

To get to Minh Chau island, you must first reach the Van Don island district. From bus stations like My Dinh and Giap Bat, there are always many bus routes running towards Hanoi – Van Don every day.

According to Minh Chau Island tourism experience, you should tell the bus to get off at Van Don junction. From here you continue to take bus route No. 01 to Van Don post office, then take a motorbike taxi to Cai Rong port. From Cai Rong port, continue to buy high-speed train tickets to Minh Chau Island. Another option, you can choose limousine service to Van Don. The advantage of these vehicles is that you will be taken directly to Van Don without having to change the car.

If you want to take a train early in the morning to the island, find a way to Bai Chay before 17:00 to make the last Vietnam trip to Van Don. When you arrive, you can rent a guest house in Van Don so that the next morning you can go to the island.
