Hon Ba is just 20m away from Con Son Island, when the tide is low people can walk though, but when the tide is high, it is very deep and the current is very dangerous to go so it is called Cua Tu (the gate of death) or Hong Dam.Around Hon Ba and BD area there is an area of mangroves, a very important ecosystem.Along with coral reefs and marine carpet, mangrove forests provide important food and shelter for many other marine species; At the same time it also reduces the intensity of the waves to the beach.If you want to explore nature and look at long-tail monkeys, this is an ideal place

From the beach Nhat look west we see two peaks 328m high next to each other called Love Peak, the legend said that:"There are a couple love each other, but their family prohibits their marriage, they do not want to leave each other, so they fled to Ben Dam embrace each other to petrified".Mr. Tran Dinh Hue - Vice Director of Con Dao National Park Management Board, has inspired to compose the poem after standing in front of the beautiful painting of the Peak of Love.

Peak of love

Do not know since when!

Peak of love rise up

His eyes looked at the sea

Let the waves coil

Hand in hand hugged tightly

Lips say

Eyes instead of words

Do not mention separation scene

Winter toSpring and then again

Autumn came for Summer to leave

Four seasons still bloom

Now is not afraid of separation.
