Dam Tre Bay
It can be said that this is a mysterious and almost forgotten place in Con Dao because the road to here is quite difficult and tricky. The area around Dam Tre Bay is very desolate with rocky mountains and rocky beaches stretching along the coast, making the scenery even more wild. So coral diving here will give you the feeling of experiencing wildlife alone.
Also because it is a desolate bay, there is no coast guard on duty on the bay, so this area is recommended only for professional divers.
