Cai Bau is one of the islands of Van Don, which is located in the country's northeastern sea. Van Don island has been gradually turned into one of the four key economic-tourism areas in the northern border province of Quang Ninh. Bai Dai (Long Beach) runs along much of the southern side of the Cai Bau island and is hard-packed sand with some mangroves. Just offshore, almost touching distance away, there are stunning rock formations similar to those in Halong Bay. The Trúc Lâm monastery is located on the moutain at Cai Bau looking out to the Bai Tu Long bay.
