Snorkelling

With a number of accessible yet removed beaches, a vast supply of aquatic wildlife and conditions that can allow for calm, crystal water, Con Dao is one of the better spots to snorkel in Vietnam. When the waves are choppy and the current strong, it may not be worth going out, but wait for a nice day and be rewarded with a peak into life under the sea. The best snorkelling is done off the smaller islands in the archipelago, away from the current.
