Tuan Chau Island is a soil - schist island on Halong Bay and about 4 kilometers far from Bai Chay Tourist Wharf to the southwest. The island is connected to the mainland by a 2 - kilometer road built in 1998.

The name “Tuan Chau” comes from two words: “linh tuan” (patrolman) and ‘tri chau’ (district) because in the feudal period, Tuan Chau Island was a guard station in the national defense system.
