People also asked:
1 - Does Halong Bay have a beach?
Of course it does
2 - Are there any sharks in Halong bay beaches?
Luckily, there have been no sharks found or any warning for shark appearance in these beaches so far. It can be explained that: there is no food source for sharks in such shallow and static water as in Halong Bay. Practically, there are 2 types of sharks found living near the shore in Halong Bay: Carcharhinus sorrah and Scoliodon laticaudus. However, they are harmless to humans (according to an investigation by the Institute of Marine Environment and Resources and the National Science Museum of Japan)
