Co To island- a new heaven
Co To island includes large and small islands and comprises three main islands- Co To, Thanh Lan and Tran along with three main beautiful beaches and other smaller unnamed ones.
It is probably the most beautiful and romantic beach of Vietnam with transparent blue sea, white smooth sand, golden sunshine, and green mountains and forest.
Tourists who have never been to Co To may hardly imagine how fascinatingly and charmingly beautiful it is. Visiting Co To, tourists would not only have a chance to become one with the nature in a relaxing and fresh environment of blue clean seawater, but also to visit primitive forests, the impressive lighthouse of Co To, Ho Chi Minh’s Monument, Co To Pier, fishing village and natural reefs and islets.
Co To Lighthouse is the symbol of the island, which offers the most beautiful panorama of Halong Bay. From the lighthouse, tourists will have a great view of a breathtaking picture of the Northern Gulf with unique formation of small islets on emerald water of the bay, the pristine white color of beaches, the lush green color of forests, and yellow rice-fields from a far. On the way to the hill where this lighthouse is located, tourists have an opportunity to go through a romantic forest with a variety of flowers booming along the path.
