Relax on the beach at Monkey Island, a private island with scenic views. If you get tired of swimming, you can climb the island's hill for expansive views of the surroundings. Grab a meal at the beach bar and avoid bringing your own food and leaving valuables out in the open, as the monkeys often steal food and other items from visitors, and can become aggressive if stopped. For Monkey Island and beyond, use our Cat Ba trip itinerary builder site to get the most from your Cat Ba vacation.

Monkey Island Reviews
It's a beautiful island and the view is nice, however the monkeys are aggressive and within the first 10 minutes of our trip, myself, my friends and many other people who were with us on the trip..... more »
This Island is full of trash and angry monkeys. Dont ever eat on the Island, because the mean one, with scars in the face, will chase you. more »
One of most beautiful place. If you have time and less stuff to carry. I recommend you stay one night. There are some people who can arrange accommodation and food for you. Monkeys are friendly as long as you don't try to play with them they will be in their way. Its a sandy beach with an Amazing view. You can climb to the top but rocks are bit tricky I felt them like iron. On to the other side you can walk and make your own moment because that side is less busy. There are boats coming from morning to evening so going to Hai pong or Cat Ba island or any other place is not that hard.
Beautiful island! You can climb to the top (better to have good shoes !), and have this beautiful view of the Bay ! No monkey (just 3 near the restaurant). We were alone, so peaceful!
