Named after Ghermann Titov, a former Soviet Union hero, Titop Island is home to a crescent moon-shaped beach of dazzling, snowy white sand.Along with its stunning beauty, visitors are also attracted to Titop Island because of its interesting history. In 1962, this tiny island had the honour of hosting astronaut Ghermann Titop, a hero of the former Soviet Union, accompanied by President Ho Chi Minh. To honour the memory of their visit, Uncle Ho named the place Titop Island. 

Thirty-five years later in 1997, Ti Top returned to the island which now bore his name. Deeply moved, he wrote in the souvenir book of the Management Board of Halong Bay: "My deepest thanks to destiny, which has allowed me to come back to this tiny island.” The beach is now a popular destination for tourists.
