Top 6 things to do in Con Dao

The Côn Đảo archipelago, which is far enough from the mainland to feel remote but close enough to reach with a short flight, has all the makings of a wonderful vacation. Côn Sơn is the only inhabited island in the Côn Đảo archipelago, which consists of 15 islands. his increases the opportunity for sunbathers and snorkelers to enjoy quiet beaches and see colorful coral reels and fish. Even hikers can enjoy this beach getaway by exploring the enormous national park that encompasses the majority of the island. Here are seven ideas for things to do on the island.

Relax at your resort

Six Senses is the most talked-about accommodation on Côn Đảo. Six Senses specializes in immersive wellness getaways and creates the ideal environment for de-stressing in its bamboo beachside villas. The resort’s eco-friendly design, long private beach, and celebrity guest list all contribute to its reputation. There are, however, other lovely places to stay. Villa Maison is a boutique hotel in the middle of town with comfortable, elegant rooms and an excellent restaurant. Mai's Guesthouse, owned by a local island girl and her spouse who designed their homestay with sustainability in mind, is a good option for budget travelers.

Travel along the coastal highway

Driving a scooter is a popular pastime in Côn Sơn. The major route of the island, which connects the north and south, travels along the coast. Motorcyclists here travel at a leisurely pace to enjoy the magnificent vistas of the Pacific Ocean. There are other tantalizing sights during the trip, but the most spectacular is at Chim Chim Cape. Walk out towards the peninsula's tip to see the waves crashing into the island's sheer cliffs. Even locals come here to view the sunset or stare at the stars at night.

Get to know your surroundings

Côn Sơn, a little town with a few colonial-era buildings and a few newer stores, hotels, and restaurants, will rapidly become familiar to you. The greatest approach to get your bearings is to go on a bike ride. Small cafes like Infinity are ideal for unwinding with a cà phê sữa đá. You may want to visit the Phú Hải Prison for a glimpse into the island’s history as a former penal colony. Of course, Con Son is teeming with seafood restaurants - choose one with a live catch on display for a delicious seafood supper. If you're craving Vietnamese cuisine, try Nguyễn An Restaurant or Gia Minh's wonderful homemade noodles.

Test out the waters

Côn Đảo has some of the best diving and snorkeling in the country. Plan a day trip to the coral reefs at Hòn Tài, Bảy Cạnh, or Câu islands, where you can see stingrays, barracuda, turtles, moray eels, batfish, clownfish, and cuttlefish. Aside from boat cruises, there will be lots of options for offshore snorkeling. Đầm Tre Lagoon is one of Côn Sơn's top snorkeling locations, accessible by a two-hour hike. The national park trail going to the lagoon may be found at one end of Parkplatz Vong beach. Bring your snorkeling gear if you want to see the abundant clams that live in the waters of Đầm Tre.

Pay a visit to a turtle hatchery

Many marine turtles arrive from the Philippines to hatch their eggs on Bảy Cạnh, one of the archipelago's islands. If you want to learn more about this natural phenomena, you can join one of the small-group trips that operate daily from April through October during the hatching season. The guides, who are also conservationists, will tell you everything you need to know about turtle behavior and the threats they face. You might be lucky and observe hundreds of newborn turtles running to the water in the early hours of the morning.

Hike the National Park

The majority of Côn Sơn is covered in trees, much to the joy of nature lovers. Hikers may access paths from all over the island, but one of the best hikes begins right at the park's entrance. The paved walk to Ông Đụng rock beach is easy to navigate, and along the journey, you'll learn about the unique ecosystem of the jungle. Take one of the many trails that branch off at Ông Đụng beach for a full-day adventure.
