A small archipelago off the southern coast, only a handful of visitors come to Con Dao. Although the trip requires more effort, those who commit to making the journey will be rewarded with some of the best beaches in the country and the best snorkeling. Most of the island is covered by Con Dao National Park. Its dense forest will give you many opportunities to discover a paradise of your own.

Go beach-hunting

Côn Đảo travelers are spoiled for choice when it comes to secluded beaches. Take a hike to Bãi Ông Đụng, a stony coastal spot where you can snorkel close to shore, or head to Đầm Trầu Beach or Đất Dốc Beach for sunbathing.

Sign up for a day trip

Snorkeling excursions on Con Dao reveal some of Vietnam's best underwater attractions. On land, hikers can arrange for a guide through the national park office or set out on their own with a map of the national park.

Visit the Côn Đảo Museum

Con Dao is home to one of Vietnam's most notorious former prisons, having served as a detention facility for French as well as Americans. You can get a good understanding of the island's history at the newly built Con Dao Museum.

Have a wellness retreat

There are few places in Vietnam that are more peaceful and relaxing than Côn Đảo. The Six Senses Con Dao is a stunning, sustainable resort in a private bay, complete with nourishing meals, yoga sessions, and an award-winning spa.

Get on two wheels

Con Dao's coastal roads are a dream for both cyclists and motorcyclists. In town, you can ride under ancient trees and colonial buildings of the past, and just outside are windswept beaches, rocky shorelines, and jungle-covered slopes.

Con Dao Weather

Côn Đảo's coolest weather arrives between September and January while its hottest months are June, July and August. Given the island's location, Côn Đảo is also prone to strong winds in December and January. Turtle-hatching season takes place from mid-August to early December.

Con Dao Transport

Flights depart daily from Ho Chi Minh City and land at the island's modest airport. Your other option from Ho Chi Minh City is to catch a bus to Soc Trang and take the two-hour Superdong Ferry to the island. The main town of Con Son is flat and small, which is easy to explore on foot or by bicycle. You can also reach the main attractions just outside of town by bicycle, including the prison museum and Van Son pagoda. The rest of the island is best to see by motorbike. Small boats are also available for snorkeling trips.
