Huyen and I went to Cat Ba to have a romantic weekend before my upcoming trip with my sister. Huyen told me that, "The beach in winter is supposed to be romantic." Well, she was right. It was definitely the off season in Cat Ba which meant there were only a few people on the island. When we arrived at the beach there were about twelve people lounging on the whole beach.
The water was extremely clean but a little too cold to go for a swim. Instead we took a nice walk along the beach, collected sea shells and just lounged around until the sun went down.
