Con Dao Island Information

Con Dao Tourist Information

Con Dao is a beautiful archipelago of 16 islands, 180 km south of mainland Vietnam. It is part of the Ba Ria-Vung Tau province, 234 km from Hoh Chi Minh city. The largest of the islands, called Con Son, is 51km2 and has a population of around 5000. Apart from a few national park staff, the other islands around Con Son are uninhabited. It is a new holiday destination and therefore relatively untouched. You will not find noisy bars or nightclubs on Con Dao – old French colonial buildings, deserted private beaches, crystal clear waters, stunning mountains and evergreen forests are what Con Dao has to offer. This is the ultimate “getaway” destination.

Getting there

Flights to the island are provided by Vietnam Airlines, which operate a small 68 seat twin prop ATR72  from Ho Chi Minh City. Flight time is 50 minutes and they run 2 to 4 times daily. The last flights during the day leave HCMC at 3pm – no flights are scheduled in the evenings – and prices are around $80, one way. Availability is always limited and during Vietnamese holidays these flights are nearly always fully booked . Book your flights asap. You can book on-line by visiting Vietnam Airlines website. If you are having trouble finding flights – the please contact us – we may be able to help!

A ferry runs from mainland Vung Tau to Con Dao and is cheap, but the journey takes 12hrs – the service is erratic and weather dependent – only advisable for the hardened traveler to take!


Con Dao has a wide range of accommodation to offer from locally run guest houses at around $25 per night, beach cabins at around $35 per night, to larger resorts at $50 to $120 per night, right up to the 5 star, award winning eco resort – the ultra luxurious Six Senses Resort and Spa.
