Three Peach Beach
The island connects to a legend of about the romantic love between a youngest fairy who was very pretty with a young and poor fisherman. Because of feeling in love with him, she stole three peaches from Heaven for him, that if he ate, would give him eternal life, allowing them to live together forever. The King of the Heavens discovered the robbery and turned the peaches into three stone islands. Chastised, the young fairy had to return.
Among many different well-known beaches within Ha Long Bay, the Three Peach Beach is quite an interesting pick, first of all, is the name, there is no unique name for the beach so it got its name from the archipelago of which it’s on. The archipelago is three islands with small islands at about 23 meters tall that resemblance three peaches when looked at from afar. The islands are a true beauty, with its rock surfaces bearing fascinating figures with quite a lovely natural beauty to go along with it.
Aside from the fascination for the eyes, there is also quite a legend that associates with the three island, it was about the love between a fairy, the youngest daughter of god and a poor fisherman, who was a mere mortal, in hoping of staying happily together, she stole 3 magical peaches for the fisherman to eat, hoping to make him immortal, but god found out about it, force the fairy to leave the poor fisherman and turned the 3 magical peaches into the 3 mountain islands we see today. That was the islands, and now, for The Peach Beach, which is very gorgeous, all thanks to the blue water, so clear that visitors can see the bottom going along with the already mentioned gorgeous rock surfaces.
Another interesting and rather unique aspect of the beach is that the water is very shallow, and is protected from the wind on many sides that make for quite a safe and relaxing beach to enjoy. But a downside is that it is only safe to swim for about 2-3 hours as the entire beach is engulfed by water as the tide rises, so it is an important note to ask around and study about the tide before going to the beach. But don’t be discouraged by this fact though, as it sounds way worse than it actually is and the attraction of a huge amount of visitors to the beach and the archipelago is the proof that it is not that bad, so don’t worry and just give the location a try for it will give you quite an experience.
