Located about 6km (4mi) from the Con Son town, Nhat Beach or Bai Nhat is Con Dao’s most picturesque beach. It consists of several smaller beaches, broken up by dark boulders. Nhat Beach is famous for its clean white sand, shallow turquoise seas and spectacular spot to watch the sunset – one of the best spot for sunset in the country.
The beach is also a favorite place for wedding photos, proposals and engagements. According to a local belief, the beautiful mountain backdrop at Nhat Beach is called the “Mountain of Love”, as it resembles a couple embracing each other as such symbolizing love.
Nhat Beach only appears a few hours a day during the low tide, so the best time to come for swimming is between 2pm to 7pm.
