Con Dao Islands
Secluded Con Dao boasts some of Vietnam's finest beaches and most exclusive resorts. A short flight south from the hubbub of Ho Chi Minh City delivers you to the idyllic paradise islands of Con Dao, great for relaxation, diving and observing the population of turtles if your visit is well timed.
“For a truly secluded beach option there is nowhere else in Vietnam like Con Dao. Beautiful and far from the madding crowd.”
Enfys Maloney, Team Leader
Con Dao is a chain of islands with Con Son being the largest in this collection. Con Son is a tiny island just 20km at its widest point and was once used by the French to hold thousands of prisoners-of-war. Now predominantly protected by the Con Dao National Park this island is the nesting grounds for Vietnam's most important sea turtles (nesting season May-November). For visitors, this is a beautiful island and the small number of resorts, including the sumptuous Six Senses, is a perfect choice for some mellow beachside relaxation.
