360

Bay Canh is the 2nd largest island after Con Son (683 hectares), named as Bay Canh because of polygonal shape with 07 surrounding beaches when looking down from the air. During the time occupied by USA Army, this island was known as Phu Cuong in the system of 16 “Phu” letters named for the whole Con Dao archipelago.

Con Dao mangrove forest plays an important role in environmental protection, breakwater prevention as well as nursing and hiding place for many aquatic species whose life cycles are associated with mangrove habitat, such as crabs, shrimps, etc.
