Dau Nguoi Islet (Human head shaped Islet) is situated in the south of the island range of Bo Hon, Halong Bay, about 13 kilometers far from Bai Chay Tourist Wharf. It lies near Luon Cave, Amazing Cave and Ti Top Island.

Dau Nguoi Islet is about 25 meters high. The islet is famous for its special shape of a man’s head and its own poetic beauty as it lies amidst seawaters. From a far position, it looks like the head of a Greek with a big hawkish nose and pointed chin above the water surface. Many people associate it with the image of the Egyptian Sphinx.

The most ideal time to gaze the islet is at the sunset. By kayaking or from the cruise, tourists will see fantastic scenery of Dau Nguoi Islet in red sunshine of late afternoon.
