You’ll make your base on Con Son, the archipelago’s only inhabited island, but can tour the remaining islets for a beguiling castaway adventure. The ultra-luxurious Six Senses Con Dao has put this remote destination firmly on the jet-set’s wish list with its stylish villas, private pools, award-winning spa, personal butler service and enchanting sea views.
Con Dao is a great wildlife-watching spot – it’s a favourite nesting ground for sea turtles and you may also encounter resident crabs scuttling around the beaches and macaque monkeys and black squirrels hanging out in their natural habitat. Waters are crystal-clear from February to July and baby turtles hatch from May to October, a phenomenon best witnessed on the second-largest island, Hon Bay Canh.
Dam Trau Beach is one of the region’s most beautiful, where golden sands are flanked by shimmering turquoise waters. Here you can snorkel along a kaleidoscope of coral reefs in search of turtles and stingray. Another pretty beach is the elusive Bai Nhat, which only appears at low tide but is well worth the wait.
Con Dao National Marine Park protects over 80 percent of the archipelago and there are plenty of scenic hiking trails on Con Son. Moss can make the paths slippery, so do make sure you pack hiking boots if you fancy an inland adventure. The scooter is the island’s most popular mode of transport and roads are good, but if you don’t fancy hopping on a moped you can hire a bicycle or book a taxi.
To get to grips with Con Son’s dark history, purchase tickets to all four of the island’s former prisons from Trai Phu Hai in the centre of town. Your visit will take you to what was once dubbed ‘Hell on Earth’ – the harrowing ‘tiger cage’ cells where French colonists jailed their detractors and prisoners were later tortured during the Vietnam War; and the Hang Duong Cemetery, where the remains of independence fighters are buried. It’s not for the faint-hearted, but gives an important glimpse into the archipelago’s chequered past.
On a lighter note, you can charter a boat to Con Dao’s smaller outlying islands for a thrilling wilderness adventure. And that’s really what a trip here is all about –discovering far-flung, untamed landscapes in a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
