Worth the stop although due to the weather we could not use the the beach for swimming but still enjoyed the beach area and the climb up for the view.

“Worth the climb to the top”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

While cruising Halong Bay, our boat took us to Titop Island, named by Ho Chi Minh after the Russian astronaut. Numerous boats stop at the wharf here, and for those who don't wish to climb the 426 steps to the top, the sandy beach, cafe and clean swimming water are pleasant. The stone steps up the mountainside are uneven, and the rope handrails don't exist in all parts, so good balance is required. At the top, you are rewarded with 360 degree views over Halong Bay and the various cruise boats. The mosquitos were out in force, so take your repellent, along with a bottle of water, as the trek is hot work.

“Clean but small and nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

After Amazing cave visiting we were taken to Ti Top and could not understand that how to combined the name between that small island with TiTop. For us you should skip this place.

“Nice view & monkeys, too.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 22, 2014

This island has a nice beach (sand is imported) and a small cafe under a thatched roof. The climb to the top was quite steep, and there are no steps for about 2/3 of the way. The view from the top wasn't great the day we were there because it was foggy. However, there is a colony of small monkeys that make the island their home. They just happened to be down on the rocks at one end of the beach, and I enjoyed watching and photographing them.

“Beach with Historic Visitors”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2014

This island in Halong Bay has a beautiful sandy beach. Most tour boats make a short stop here for people to stretch their legs. You can climb 420 steps to a small pavilion which provides the best panoramic view in all of Halong Bay. Ti Top or Titov island was named after the 2nd man in space - cosmonaut Gherman Titov, who came here with Ho Chi Minh in 1962.
