“On two occasions dugongs were seen in water as shallow as 1m, approaching the beaches to the left and right-hand-side of the rock point. During the first occasion two similarly sized dugong juveniles were observed chasing each other at swimming speeds considerably faster than normal, nudging one another with their heads. A second event involved a dugong adult spinning along its length whilst swimming forwards in the shallow surf. Clearly visible on this dugong were large fish that were attached to the dugong’s flanks mid-way between the flippers and tail.”

Con Dao Islands, Vietnam

 

Located close to the equator (45 minute by air from Ho Chi Minh City), and described by The New York Times as '...one of Southeast Asias most untouched and breathtaking getaways', Con Dao archipelago enjoys a warm tropical climate.
