- Luon Cave

Here, it is a steep cliff and the water is blue and calm like a shining mirror throughout the seasons. The cave always attract tourists not only by its unique shape but also the charming natural scenery.

Nam Cat Island attracts tourists by its primitive looks, charming natural sights and marine forest. You only have to have a 15-minute boat ride from Ben Beo.
Thanks to the primitive looks, the tourists coming here always have a peaceful feeling. The island has been greatly limited from human activities to secure its natural beauty.
With 3 stilt houses and 6 comforts, you’ll be one with nature and the ocean atmosphere. Also, the island has all there are to serve the tourist from beaches, kayaking, fishing to late night campfires.
- Monkey Island (Sandy Pineapple Island)
It usually takes tourists 10 minutes on a boat from Ben Beo through Cai Beo fishing village and some small islands. Before, Monkey Island was called Sandy Pineapple Island because there are wild pineapple plants with delicious-looking pineapples but not suitable for eating.
Now, it’s called Monkey Island, due to the 20 monkeys that the rangers from Cat Ba National Park brought here. The monkeys usually come down to play around with tourists and eat what the tourists give them such as fruits and pastries, surprising anyone that hasn’t been here before.
