Amazing time. Had just started my travels solo and doing this right outa the gate was a great decision. By lunch time on day 1 I had forgotten that I hadn't come with friends from back home. Rock climb, tube, wake board, kayak with a 10/10 beautiful view. The staff was great. They do a great job making sure everyone... More

Me and my friends absolutely loved Castaway. From the moment we arrived on the island we felt like we just arrived in heaven. The (brandnew) bungalows and bar area are superb. There are more than enough activities to do on the island. Rockclimbing and tubing on the first day, than cruising on the second day. Handsdown the best boozecruise I've... More

The Castaway Island worth every penny. The new island is amazing new huts great common areas. The first day when you arrive on the island you will be stunned by the picturesque views. You will have lunch and soon enjoy climbing, tubing/wakeboarding(depending what you booked) or just chill on the beach. At night after dinner: party and bonfire. Next day... More

I did the Castaway Island trip twice over the Christmas / New Year period (once wasn't enough). Both trips were amazing, but very different experiences mainly due to weather and group sizes. The staff are an awesome bunch of people and a special thanks to Rosie, Erin, Ashley and Dennis who really made the experience! I recommend asking about group... More

Castaway trip was so much and so much fun that I extended the trip by an extra 2 days. I was lucky to be there for the opening of the new island! There are plenty of fun activities such as tubing, kayaking, boat cruise to haylong bay, rock climbing, and loads more! I and group of people on the island... More

We did a 3 day tour of ha long bay and it was very good. We met some amazing people on the boat and enjoyed partying for both nights. One of the best parts was kayaking throughout Ha Long Bay.
