Hiking in Tropical Rain Forest
Begin your journey behind Con Dao township; venture into the Rain Forest and ready yourself for a climb of 260 metres above sea level to visit the So Ray Plantation. You can come across rare and endemic species such as Con Dao Long Tailed Macaque and playful Con Dao Giant Black Squirrels.
For the adventurous, continue your hike down through the lesser traveled North side of Con Dao and rest your feet in the waters at the stunning Ong Dung Bay.
Trekking to the Lighthouse
A 30 minute ride by speedboat will lead to the beautiful island of Bay Canh where the adventure begins; a two to two and a half hour trek through the dense forest leads you to one of Con Dao’s most important landmarks. Construction of the Bay Canh Lighthouse was between 1883 and 1885 is located one of the highest points in on Bay Canh island at 226 meters above sea level.
What better way to spend the early morning than on a boat feeling sea breeze against your skin against the backdrop of Con Dao Archipelago. We recommend you take this trip with an Island local on his converted, but simple, fishing boat. Captain Thien has been plying the waters around Con Dao for over twenty-five years.
A sailing experience aboard a Hobie catamaran is a little bit of heaven. Sail, feel the soft breeze on your face and see the beauty and charm Con Dao has to offer, from the picturesque fisherman boats to that point in the horizon where the sky seems to blend with the sea.
