About Đông Nam Bộ

The southeastern region of Vietnam has five provinces plus the municipality of Hồ Chí Minh City. The two southern provinces Ninh Thuận and Bình Thuận are also sometimes considered to be part of this region. The nearest diving spots worth visiting are in Bình Thuận Province and the Côn Đảo Islands, which are a bit further away. Bình Thuận Province has shipwrecks off the coast, the most notable shipwreck of which is known as the Bình Thuận Shipwreck. In Bình Thuận Province, Ca Na Beach has some of the best diving, with clear water and unspoiled coral reefs that house an abundance of marine life. Côn Đảo is an archipelago of 16 islands located to the southeast of mainland Vietnam. It is almost the only location in the country where pelagics, turtles, sharks, rays, and giant barracudas can be seen. Cuttlefish, sea snakes, frogfish, and a whole host of tropical reef fish can be seen, and the coral is relatively untouched and impressive. Most of the archipelago is now a national park with some good beaches, clear water, and coconut groves. Many species of coral as well as sea turtles and dugongs are found here. There are over 20 sites with depths ranging from 5-25m/16-82ft, from simple novice dives to challenging off-shore drifts and deep dives, including some diveable wrecks. Here Sask Wall, Canada’s Reef, Celtic Circuit, Hun Trung, and Fish Highway are some of the best sites with a wide variety of life. The main island, Côn Sơn, is home to a coastline of steep, rocky hills, beautiful bays, and a number of coral reefs.
