Relax on the beach at Monkey Island, a private island with scenic views. If you get tired of swimming, you can climb the island's hill for expansive views of the surroundings. Grab a meal at the beach bar and avoid bringing your own food and leaving valuables out in the open, as the monkeys often steal food and other items from visitors, and can become aggressive if stopped. For Monkey Island and beyond, use our Hai Phong trip itinerary builder site to get the most from your Hai Phong vacation.

Climb up to rock. It’s the best view. It is pretty challenging and you do need good shoes not flip flops. I wore water shoes it they worked perfectly. If you are afraid of heights or not into free climbing up some jagged rocks to reach the top then I wouldn’t recommend it. It is also really hot up there so take water. The island itself is nice. We spotted a few jellyfish lurking around in the water, so we were very cautious with our swim there. It is nice for sunbathing and the sand is super soft. The prices are pretty expensive so I’d advise taking water beforehand.
Beautiful island! You can climb to the top (better to have good shoes !), and have this beautiful view of the Bay ! No monkey (just 3 near the restaurant). We were alone, so peaceful!
The view point is really good with great view. Be aware that the climbing is not easy, and I will recommended avoiding from coming with flip flops. We came at around 14:30 with the organized boat tour, but this is the time all the boat arrives and it really crowded. It took me 40 to get to the top, while I was standing and waiting most of the time because the path is very narrow
There is a viewpoint, located in the south of the island, to which you have to hike up for around 20 minutes from the beach. The way is mostly crowded, which also slows you down. Stones are very sharp and the way gets harder, the further you walk! Way is almost only steep but after 5 mins you can also see the bay already, if you don’t want to climb up all. I‘d say, the way down takes a bit longer and is much more dangerous so watch out:) I really recommend to bring and wear closed shoes, cause it’s much harder and dangerous on these rocks with flip flops. The view on the very top is amazing and you can see all around!(: When you arrive at the beach you can see a lot of monkeys that are very clever!:D Watch out for your stuff and better don’t feed them... The island is very crowded in general and has a place to buy snacks and drinks:) Enjoy!
One of he most beautiful places in the world!!! Monkey everywhere! There is a nice hike up to get views of the surrounding areas! You can buy nuts to feed the monkeys. Be sure to throw away the wrapper in the appropriate place! The monkeys are really cute but will fight each other for food!
