  • What an amazing place. The nature is beautiful and the people are all very friendly. The way up to the top is hard (800m) but it's worth the view. I managed to bring my dog to the top :)
  • If you like trekking just go ahead CatBa island. You can hire a mortorbike and go alongside the beach would be more enjoyable! Remember to bring water and some breads cuz you’ll need them during your trekking. It’s not very tough to get to the peak, the paths are not very sloping. It’s around1 hour and 30 minutes for the whole journey! Btw, there are some lovely traditional cabins you can rent!
