Con Dao islands rank the first place amongst 10 most beautiful beach destinations in Vietnam

CON DAO, Vietnam – Jul 9, 2019 – Recently, Vietnam’s hidden paradise – Con Dao islands has become Forbes’s first choice amongst the 10 most beautiful beach destinations of the country, thanks to its scenic nature, diverse marine life and pristine beaches. Despite of the dark history in the past, Mother Nature gave a sweet favor to this island and turned it into a charming paradise that enchants a number of travelers around the world.


Located off the southern coast of Vietnam, just 45-minute flight from Ho Chi Minh City, untouched by the rapid development of mainland, Con Dao archipelago remains a pristine gem. The island life is as tranquil as the surrounding water. Comprising 16 mostly uninhabited islands and islets, this is an ideal destination for those who expect an ultimate serenity and seclusion. 80 percent of the land area of the islands is National Park, offering sublime and magnificent landscapes, all set in natural splendor. Imagine losing yourself in Con Dao’s nature while hiking through the rain forest. Try to spot the endemic animal species such as Giant Black Squirrel, Macaque and the Curved-toe Gecko and listen to the multitude of birdsong and chatter of wildlife. What a moment to remember!


Apart from striking nature, the island rewards travelers with some of the most beautiful and idyllic beaches in Vietnam. Con Dao islands are well-known for soft sandy beach, clear alluring water with shades ranging from light turquoise to deep blue, and healthy coral reefs. One thing is for sure: the beaches here will never be crowded. The well-preserved condition and the absolute seclusion make this hidden gem stand out from other nine popular spots in the list. The lesser-known element now becomes the island’s advantage as it arouses the curiosity in travelers who want to discover one of a few untouched paradises left in Asia. This might also be the reason why Con Dao archipelago has won the top-pick by Forbes Magazine. Head to Bai Nhat which is located just 6 km away from downtown center to indulge in a spectacular moment of the sun slowly setting and an overwhelming display of colors on the horizon. Don’t hesitate to take a speed boat to Bay Canh or Cau islands to discover the underwater life surrounding Vietnam’s premier marine protected area, where you will see some of the documented 1,493 species of underwater life and the best coral formations of the country.


The beauty of Dat Doc beach where the one and only five-star resort of the archipelago located, is truly unparalleled. Flanked by dramatic Lo Voi mountain and darkly green forested surround, Six Senses Con Dao features an unspoiled natural scenery. The secluded property prides itself for the unsurpassed sense of privacy, making it a perfect place for private island retreat. 50 villas and residences are contemporary in design and embrace the essence of a traditional fishing village.
