There were 2 main beaches on the island. The Cat Co 2 was in construction so no one was there to swim or visit. Honestly, I forgot the way to the other 2 beaches so we just picked 1 way. It actually leaded to a...More

Place is basically construction area. There is small part as a beach but its more like size of a sandbox. Cat co 3 is much better and not far away. You can go there from the stairs/road which starts from end of the beach.

Got there midday and enjoyed the views and warm water. Charge for chairs and umbrella 60 k but great beach. Some loud construction behind was a downer and the crowds got atrocious around 4 pm. It was a Friday. But we were done by then.

Overcrowded with construction zone in the rear. Probably extending the tiny beach. Definitely not recommendable.

If you’re planning on going to the beach today, might as well do it good and get to Cat Co 3 Beach straight away.

We didn't stay here but did take a late afternoon walk on the walkways. We didn't go down to the beach (not sure if we'd be kicked off, but it was also really cold) but we went straight to the walkways.

3 beaches, cat co 1-2-3. In my opinion 3 is the best, 1 the last where you should go. 3 has the most expensive beach bar, but just bring own drinks and food and rent a sunbed, they are fine with it. 1 and 2...More

Good beaches. You will normally need to pay around 200,000vnd for each bed that you use. There are tubes and kayaks etc that can be hired. Bring your own food and alcohol as the restaurant is terrible and overpriced. Becomes busy around sunset when the...More
