Sao Beach, An Thoi

Enjoy a cocktail under a swaying coconut palm at Sao Beach. Located on the southeastern side of the island, the easily accessible beach boasts powdery white sands and clear turquoise waters. The beach has all the necessary facilities for leisure and fun, including bars, water sport operators, fishing boats, kayaks, powerboats, and food vendors. Due to weak currents and relatively shallow ocean bed, the coastline remains safe for children and non-swimmers. You can also go on a snorkeling adventure to observe starfish, sea urchins, and other marine life. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Sao Beach by using our An Thoi sightseeing planning site.

  • Fantastic little beach, white Sand, quiet, relaxing atmosphere with swing in the beach and in the water....
  • The most beautiful beach on this island.
  • If you are coming to see the beach you need to cross Paradiso beach club and restaurant and they force you to pay a "parking" fee 200k or to buy something from restaurant/sunbeds. This beautiful beach is full of plastic/trash...such a shame. At least they should clean the beach daily with this money.
  • Sao Beach is a white sand beach with lush jungly headlands on both sides. Unfortunately the beauty is overshadowed by trash and unpleasant and unaesthetic developments all along the beach. I can see where this must have been a beautiful area before it was destroyed. Very disappointing and sad!
  • Drop by this beautiful places to grab some lunch! Calming and beautiful scenary. Good for sun bathing.
