Titov Beach is located in Halong Bay, about 8 kilometers southeast of the Bai Chay Tourist Pier. In the past, the island was called Nghia Dia or the graveyard. This name came from a French cargo ship entering Halong Bay area in 1905. The ship was stabbed into the reef because of no navigator to format the way. All of the sailors on board were died and taken to burial at the island. From there, the name Nghia Dia was born as a memory of the unlucky people.

In 1962, Uncle Ho had the opportunity to travel with the Soviet cosmonaut Gherman Titov to visit the island. Since he did not know the name of the island, Uncle Ho asked people to get the name Titov for the island as a friendship between the two countries Vietnam and the Soviet Union. And of course, everyone praised Uncle Ho’s decision. So the name Titov as such exists to this day.

In 1997, Gherman Titov returned to this place and emotionally expressed his feelings in the memoirs of the management board of Halong Bay: “Thank fate for giving me the opportunity to return to this small island”.
