Visiting this cave was part of our itinerary in the Bai Tu Long Bay cruise. I have visited several of these kind in Thailand and Indonesia. So this is non unique. But I like the short and exciting hike to the cave which has a very narrow entrance. Only one person with some maneuver can either enter or exit at one time. This cave has only one entry point. The other opening looks out to the steep fall into the sea. So visitors eill have to wait for their turn while entering or exiting.
The inside of the cave has very well lit 2 chambers. Wonderful ventilation. The natural sculpting of limestone are mesmerizing.
On your way down, there is a diversion that leads to a small hidden beach which is really beautiful.
Please wear good trainers for the best experience.

While the location and scenery are beautiful. This tiny cave has been destroyed by years of tourism. Our guide let us know that fishermen have been harvesting the stalagmites and stalactites over the years, slowly killing this small cave.

The hike up to the cave is relatively short but steep. The views and lush plants make this walk relaxing. There are hundreds of caves in Vietnam worth visiting, but this one isn't one of them.

This is not for everybody!!

It is a cave filled with some unimpressive limestone stalagmites

The cave is not very well illuminated with slippery sections

It takes a good five to ten minutes hike along a roped link uphill it is NOT ideal for disabled ,persons especially with knees or ambulatory problem

The lookout is impressive but doesn’t deserve the steep climb and the descent which could be treacherous especially after rain

The cave itself is unimpressive(unless you haven’t seen one!)

Our boat cruise took as here claiming the other caves were more touristy and the cave was nice but very small so not sure it was a great suggestion.

Likes:
Nice and impressive cave.
Steps good for a walk.

BIG dislikes:
This is an overcrowded tourist attraction. Thousands of tourists are crawling like ants on the stairs and taking pictures.
And the tourist guides are using laserpointers to show out the figures in the cave. Very annoying on your photographs and video.

The walk up the steps to the cave entrance was manageable. I stopped to rest but realised I was at the entrance. The cave opened up to smaller caverns, with plenty of light. Lots of stalllictites forming many unusual shapes. A feast for my imagination. One roof reminded me of an upside down dragon with its spine stretching across the roof. Felt magical and mystical. Feltca rosy, radiantvglow all around me. Magical

This was a morning stop on an overnight cruise, it’s a easy walk up 100 steps and down if wet would recommend sneakers for the walk down as can be slippery. Apparently Cave is one of the largest in the bay. It has a high-ceiling space with glistening stalactites scattered everywhere, hanging down from the ceiling and growing up from the floor. The beach is in the way back, it is good for photos.

The surrounding area is amazing and going down to the beach you can get some amazing pictures. It was starting to get busy when we arrived, but they were nice caves, but you were through in 5 minutes.

It is not a very big cave . Sometimes get crowded because the entrance is narrow. There is a short easy climb.There are beautiful limestone stalagmites and stalactite . The view from the top of the cave is excellent. In the beach there are kayak renting places . Kayaking is a nice experience.
