Ba Trai Dao – Majestic beauty of Islet and Beach

Ba Trai Dao Islet (Three Peaches Islet) lays near Cat Ba Island, in the territory of Halong City, Quang Ninh Province. It is 22 kilometers from Bai Chay Tourist Wharf to the Southeast. The islet is a group of three small mountains, seen from afar, resemble the image of three giant peaches – a fact that accounts for the name “Ba Trai Dao” which literally means three peaches in Vietnamese. The average height of three mountains is 23 meters giving the islet a majestic beauty. It’s featured with its own three small beautiful sandy beaches (Ba Trai Dao Beach) embracing small islands.

Not just referring to the shapes of the three mountains, there is actually a myth underlying the unique name of Ba Trai Dao Islet. The local residents of Halong Bay now still tell the old story about the origination of Ba Trai Dao Islet. Story has it, that the fairies escaped from Heaven and came here for sight-seeing and swimming. The youngest fairy, who was very pretty and virtuous, fell in a romantic love with a poor fisherman there. Her deep love empowered her to do something she had never thought of: stealing the eternal peaches from the heaven to give to her lover so that they can live together forever. However, when she was waiting for the fisherman at the place where we see Ba Trai Dao Islet today, the King of Heaven showed up. It turned out that he had known everything about the robbery. The King turned the three peaches into three stone islands and forced the young fairy to return to heaven. Too desperate and helpless, the young fairy abode. Therefore, the locals named the islet as “Ba Trai Dao” Islet (Three Peaches Islet).

Engulfed by tides rising most of the day, Ba Trai Dao Islet only reveals its own beaches for 2 – 3 hours a day. It is beautiful with white sand and crystal blue water where on sunny days, visitors can see through to the bottom. Compared to other beaches on Halong Bay, Ba Trai Dao Beach is shallower and the water is just knee deep. Shaped as a bow embracing the islet, the surrounding peaks not only create a stone shelter for the beach but also add to its stunning beauty with abundant green vegetation and vibrant wild flowers. The combination of the mountains, the white sand and the ocean gives this spot an unprecedented romantic landscape.
