Bai Dram Trau

Top choice beach in Con Dao Islands

Reached via a dirt track 1km before the airport on Con Son Island, Bai Dram Trau is a sublime, remote 700m half-moon crescent of soft sand, fringed by casuarina trees and bookended by forest-topped rocky promontories. It's best visited at low tide. There's snorkelling on reefs offshore and some very simple seafood shacks (all open noon till dusk only).
