Spring Break Adventure on Con Dao Island
Just a short flight away from many regional and national airports, resides the Con Dao archipelago, an enchanting island that’s almost 93% National Park. The virtually untouched natural habitat includes marine wetlands that are recognized by RAMSAR with sunken mangrove forests and vast colorful coral reefs providing exhilaration that any nature enthusiast would seek out for adventure.
Along the coast of Con Son, the largest and only inhabited island in the archipelago, Six Senses Con Dao hides away on the 2km of exclusive golden sandy beach. Where couples and travel-savant families disconnect from busy lives and immerse themselves in the unspoiled nature, leading wellness facilities and exquisite, sustainable gastronomy.
Six Senses Con Dao offers an array of adventure packed activities, where guests can become their own Robinson Crusoe explorer for a day, a weekend or more.
On the Sea….
Set sail on the resorts own speedboat, into the early morning horizon and explore the majestic waters around Con Dao archipelago.
As you venture to deserted island inlets for snorkeling the bountiful underwater treasures; some of the most biodiverse coral reefs in Vietnam, will appear. Jump into the cool still waters, with perfect clarity this diving season, or for the more advanced, scuba into open waters to greet the (harmless!) sharks, turtles and other precious ocean habitants, protected by RAMSAR, while our hosts set up a picnic on a beach just for you.
And, if you spot the endangered green sea turtles, say “Xin Chao” because there’s a chance they were born at Six Senses Con Dao’s own incubation centre “Let’s Get Cracking”.
Gently on the Land…
Pick your favorite steel-horse and pedal through the off-beaten tracks with your expert guide, venturing into the almost deserted national park of Con Dao. Feel the wind brush through your hair as you heed the call to explore the amazing lush flora and investigate the deep jungle sounds of the island.
Many unique animals that cannot be found anywhere else in Vietnam, such as the Giant Black Squirrels, Nicobar Birds, Pied Imperial Pigeons together with the Macaques swinging high in the trees, call Con Dao their home.
This easy paced cycle tour is perfect for those who want the great outdoors, without breaking too much of a sweat.
For the Trail Blazers, challenge yourself with the longest and hardest trekking trail in Con Dao. A 2.5 km coastal walk along Vong beach will lead you to the verdant tropical rainforests, before raising your heartbeat with an almost-60-degree incline. Stop and admire the views, as the curious Curved-Toe Geckos marvel at your adventurous spirit, and the Macaques call out to you from the treetops above.
Work your way down to a deserted beach, set in complete solitude as you dip in the crystal-clear waters with a myriad of colorful pebbles, while we arrange you an energizing picnic lunch, before heading back, the easy way!
Finish every day of adventure at Six Senses Con Dao, winding down in the
Six Senses Spa set overlooking the ocean with uninterrupted views.
Whether it’s a sunset yoga class, or a deep tissue massage, our therapists will be on hand to give you back energy once lost to these exhilarating jungle moments!
As the evening draws in, dine under the stars at By the Beach restaurant with the local catch of the day and toast to your adventures, before retiring to your private pool villa for the deepest, soundest sleep yet.
