Con Dao Islands voted among best secret islands on earth

NDO/VNA—The Con Dao Islands in the southern province of Ba Ria–Vung Tau have been listed among the best secret islands on Earth, according to a recent article by Travel + Leisure magazine.


The US-based magazine praised the archipelago, which is 110 miles off Vietnam’s southeastern coast, for its sheer granite cliffs bordering deserted beaches and crystal-blue water, and its superb seafood dishes.

It recommended tourists to the destination visit remote spots like the spectacular Dam Tre Bay lagoon or a French-era lighthouse on Bay Canh Island’s eastern tip.

Other islands mentioned on the article included Gili Trawangan in Indonesia, Pico in Portugal and Sandön in Sweden.
