beach resort Con Dao

Beautiful undisturbed beaches & coral reefs Con Dao Island

Sixteen remote islands and islets make up the Con Dao archipelago, 185 km south of Vietnam in the Eastern  Sea. Con Son is the main island as the most significant island. The French used Con Son to keep Viet Minh political prisoners, followed Viet Cong until the war ended in 1975. Today, the islands are superb locations for those who want to get away from the crowd. Con Son offers spectacular national parks, extensive reefs, secluded beaches with tender waves. 


The usual travel to Con Dao Island is by plane from Ho Chi Minh and luxury speed boat from  Can Tho, and Tran De, Soc Trang, Mekong Delta. The island is ideal for a perfect getaway for couples and families who love to run away from crowds and bustling cities. Vietnam Backroads Travel highly recommends you explore Mekong Delta Region, experience local lives in the rustic countryside, the life on the waterways, and the real floating market before you board on speed boat to beautiful secluded beaches on Con Dao Island.
