A protected marine nature reserve, the Con Dao Islands are well worth the challenge of getting to them. Many visitors will agree that the highlight of travelling around the South Coast and Islands of Vietnam is the food. Outside of the main hotels, there are a few other eating options that will not disappoint. With such spectacular scenery in and around Con Dao, it’s no wonder that so many who visit want to stay forever.
One of the most beautiful places in Vietnam, the islands of Con Dao are primarily covered in a thick forest that’s home to an abundance of wildlife. Tours around the jungle and island-hopping can be arranged to view endangered species, and enjoy some snorkelling and diving. Hire a motorbike and explore the roads around the islands, go hiking through the forest or swim in deserted beaches. For a taste of culture during a Con Dao holiday, visit the island museum.
