Titov Beach - Ha Long Bay
Titov Island (or Titop Island), in the heart of Ha Long Bay, is relatively small (3.7 ha) but is one of Ha Long Bay’s most picturesque islands and is included in almost of their cruise itineraries
The island takes its name from the Russian cosmonaut Gherman Titov after his 1962 visit to Ha Long Bay. Titov Island is only about 8 kilometers Southeast of Ha Long Bai Chay Harbor, Halong City and is a magnificent tower of limestone rock, cloaked in thick rainforest jungle, that has erupted out of the emerald green waters
