For many tourists, Titop Island is still quite strange and less known. But this is a small island located in the Natural Wonders of the World – Halong Bay.
Ti Top island is located about 14 kilometers to the east of Bai Chay tourist harbor. To reach this beautiful island, tourists have to take a boat from Bai Chay port. During that time, tourists will be able to admire the majestic nature and beautiful scenery of Halong Bay. Standing on the boat and feeling each cool breeze blowing will increase your curiosity about Titop Island.
The island has a beach that is shaped like a crescent moon and known for its tranquillity and beautiful still blue waters. The sands of the beach have been dyed white by the ocean’s surf creating a perfect picture of paradise. Not only that, when conquering the island, you will be able to see the beauty of Halong Bay from above. If you have only seen one picture of Halong bay, it is more likely taken from the crest of Titop Island. Don’t wonder why there are thousands of tourists who visit Titop Island every day
The island was named after the Russian cosmonaut Gherman Stepanovich Titov who, together with President Ho Chi Minh, visited the island in 1962. Titop island has since become a popular tourist destination and provides many services catered to tourists.
With the wild and romantic beauty and fresh atmosphere, tourists can come here at any time of the year. Because of the immaculate white sands and the calm waters, the beach is perfect for water-based recreational activities like swimming, snorkeling, and other water sports. There is a bar on the island where you can rent all kinds of swim gear and, of course, stop for a few drinks if you’re that way inclined!
Deckchairs are available but you will be asked to buy either some food and/or beverages. If you take your own, then you will have to pay a little fee. The beach offers welcome refreshment in the hot summer months and even after sundown you can go for a walk and enjoy the moonlit beach for all its nocturnal glory.
