Con Dao Island, about 97 nautical miles from Vung Tau City, is seen as a pearl of Viet Nam’s sea tourism and renowned for its fascinating sceneries and tasty seafood specialties.
As the second largest among 16 islands in Con Dao, Bay Canh stands out as a tropical ecological reserve with a mangrove forest and peaceful beaches.

To the island, tourists are advised not to miss Cat Lon Beach, which is home to various sea turtles that often lay eggs at nighttime. Moreover, tourists can also visit an old lighthouse built in 1884 to take a close look at French colonial architecture and a panoramic view of the island.

Protected as a nature reserve, the mangrove forest on the island still has plenty of rare fauna. Therefore, a trip to the island is worthwhile for those who want to escape from urban noise and get lost in nature’s beauty and fresh air.
