Ao Ech Area
Located on the eastern side of Cat Ba Island, Lan Ha Bay is a very calm bay with about 400 large and small islands and 139 small golden sand beaches creating a beautiful natural picture. Ao Ech Area is one of the best attractions on Lan Ha Bay which is best known for its pristine and tranquil beauty. The whole area is an unspoiled waterscape created by stone mountains covering around a crystal clear water and small untouched sandy beaches.
Ao Ech is also an ideal place for water sports, especially kayaking activity. Choosing a kayak to explore Lan Ha Bay will bring new experiences that cruise ships cannot have. Passing through small islands and caves, kayak gives you a close look to the foot of the rocky mountains and watching the numerous vivid scenes of the sea world under the clear blue water.
