Luon Cave

Overview Luon Cave

Luon Cave is a mountain arc with a blue lake in the center that runs into the sea through a tunnel formed by a stunning and enigmatic cave. This cave is located at the foot of an majestic mountain, to go to the other side of the island travelers must use a boat that passes beneath the mountain. This is the reason why the name Luon Cave is relatively iconic.


Luon Cave is situated on Bo Hon Island, which is roughly 14 kilometers from Bai Chay City. The region around Luon Cave has many well-known destinations of Halong Bay Cruise Deals such as Con Rua Island (Turtle Island) is in front of Luon Cave; the Heaven Gate is to the right of this cave. Not only that, Sung Sot Cave - the most exquisite cave in Halong Bay - is located in the vicinity of Bo Hon Island; Tien Cave and Trinh Nu Cave are located near Luon Cave which are two famous caverns in Halong Bay.

Luon Cave looks like a tunnel with 100m long, 4m wide, and 3m high. The arch-shaped entrance of Luon Cave leads to a calm lake around 1 square kilometer in size. This lake is shielded from the ocean's waves and winds by steep mountains, the water surface is rather calm. This lake is like a jade that the mountains of Bo Hon Island have painstakingly reserved. The lake's four sides are limestone mountain cliffs covered in green vegetation, beautiful orchids, and even ancient trees. The mirror-like surface of Luon Cave reflects the surrounding mountains, therefore, visitors can observe the blue sky with white clouds as they look down the ocean.


With the shape of an arc 60 meters in length and the limited height (2.5 – 4 in height depending on the tide), the only way to visit Luon Cave is by kayaking or going with a local boat. In a place with diverse flora, tourists can immerse natural landscapes which are completely preserved. In particular, the "tourism specialty" is boating to the foot of the mountain to contemplate the golden monkeys and photograph them. If you have a great passion for kayaking, you should not be missed Luon Cave where most of our customers who choose kayaking as experience the serenity of the grotto.
