Con Dao is the only place in Vietnam where Sea Turtles not only come to nest, but also the only place where they enjoy full National Park protection.  Green and Hawksbill turtles come to nest around one of thirteen beaches from May to October every year. During this period female turtles will come up on the beach at high tide during the night, with her taking an exhausting 2-3 to dig, lay, and cover her nest before returning to the ocean. Enjoy a unique opportunity to see the turtles laying their eggs from May to September, and from September visit the hidden beaches to see the baby turtles being released to the ocean.
