Quan Lan Island

Quan Lan Island
Quan Lan Island is located in Van Don District, about 45 kilometers far to the northeast of Halong Bay. The island belongs to the territory of Bai Tu Long Bay. Quan Lan Island is a large island with an area of 11 square kilometers.
It has untouched charming scenery with long white sand beach and green pine forest. The island is also the residence of many aquatic species such as squid, butterfish, mackerel, sea cucumbers, shrimp, etc. On Quan Lan Island, tourists can gaze and swim at one of the most beautiful beaches of Halong bay; enjoy quiet and refreshing atmosphere as well as delicious seafood from local fresh sea products.

Today, there are still many vestiges linked to the ancient commercial port. This also explains why the island, lying deep in the sea, has the large pagodas and archaeological sites seen today. On the island there is the Quan Lạn Communal House built in the 18th century; exceedingly beautiful and almost entirely preserved. Next to it is Quan Lạn Pagoda (Linh Quang Tự), which is dedicated to Buddha and God Liêu Hạnh. The pagoda also worships the statue of old Hậu, a local person who made lots of contributions to the construction of the pagoda. The statue features a gentle and cheerful old woman, which adds an original character to the pagoda. Beside Quan Lạn Pagoda lies Nghè Quan Lạn (Ðức Ông) Shrine, which is dedicated to Phạm Công Chính, a local people who participated in the historical Vân Ðồn battle against the Yuan invaders. He was later honored as a god. Quan Lạn has many valuable sea products such as octopuses, butterfish, mackerel, holothurian, shrimp, and sai sung.
