As the story goes, the small islands and eroded limestone peaks in the bay were formed from fragments of jade and gems that sprung from the water when a dragon plunged into it. In this wide cove, a treasure trove of more than 3,000 mostly uninhabited limestone islets punctuate the surface of the indigo sea.
Strangely shaped rock sculptures and caves carved into cliffs transport you into a magical world where time has stopped. The strange and fantastic forms of these rocky peaks are worth taking the time to visit. A cruise of several days will take you to the bay's lagoons and pristine beaches. Stretching out over 1,500 square kilometres, it takes you far from traditional tourist haunts. Whether on a deluxe junk or a less expensive seafaring craft, embark on a cruise through this dream setting for a unique journey.
