Con Dao is a group of islands lying off the southern coast of the country. There are a total of 15 islands of which Con Son is the largest and the only inhabited island. Having served as the prison islands- first during French colonial era and later by the US supported South Vietnamese government, Con Dao is one of the key destinations to visit in Vietnam.
Con Dao Archipelago is a beautiful beach destination lying at a small distance from the southeastern coast of Vietnam. This exotic location is filled with thick forests, white sandy beaches, scenic bays, beautiful coral reefs and vibrant marine life. Along with the natural grandeur, there are some endearing resorts and plush promenades in the region. It also reflects the remnants of celebrated national heroes and is a harsh reminder of the atrocities on the laboured prisoners. But the fun in clear waters of many sandy beaches of Con Dao will make you never want to leave the sprawling life away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
