Con Co island is known as “the blue jewel” on the ocean, takes 28km from Cua Viet Port, Gio Linh district on the East. This is an exciting and attractive destination for near and far tourists.
We followed the tour group to explore the heroic Con Co island from the early morning in order to experience this exciting journey.  It takes more than 2 hours from Cua Viet Port to Con Co island. During the moving process, we were free to enjoy fresh air, to watch waves slap on the boatside, to experience the feeling of floating on the sea, to watch the fishermen fishing.
Come here, our group put the first steps on the heroic island, and watched some documentation introducing about Con Co island.
Then, we had the first lunch. The meal consisted of foods processed by fresh, delicous materials which are feeded and catched by local fishermen such as: squid, fish, snail, goat,…
We visited the first place: Traditional Room – where keeps sarced things which reappear a part of magnanimous history of soldiers and people of the island during last 55 years. This is the first place introducing natural resource and development potentials of Con Co island, helping tourits understand more about the formation of this heroic land. Through the introduction, we were really surprised because of the successes of the island which has only 2,3km2 area.

At night, we gathered at Ben Nghe to see the nightlife on the island; joint the campfire, exchange performances and sing together; enjoy the cool winds, fresh air to feel more peacefull, comfortable after hard and stressfull working days.
The next day, we got up early to enjoy the fresh air, feel the peacefull of the early morning, see the sunrise on the island. After relaxation, we had breakfast with typical taste of the sea and enjoyed a cup of  coffee in the morning.
The next place is the large Primary forest with pristine beauty. Here, we could see not only pristine, large but also spectacular primary forest.
