Sao Beach, Phu Quoc Island

#1 of 59 in Things to do in Phu Quoc Island
Beach Nature / Park
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. Put Sao Beach and other Phu Quoc Island attractions into our Phu Quoc Island family vacation planner, and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Unlike on the other side of the island, the water is calm. But it's dirty because of all the boats that are parked here. Disappointing.  more »
  • Went here as part of a tour. The beach was beautiful. The sand was so white and water so turquoise! Beautiful food along the beach and a lovely spot to swim. Only downside is that it was a little dirt...  more »
  • Beautiful soft white sand, but unfortunately you can also see a lot of dirt. Number of restaurants on the beach together. Water sports, hire of cots. Many local people use the beach and the sea. In terms of sand one of the nicer beaches of Viet Nam.

Where to stay in Phu Quoc Island

The southwestern coast of Phu Quoc Island offers the greatest range of accommodations. Resorts of all sizes nestle up close to the golden sands there, with many of the more luxurious options boasting their own private beaches and beach bars. Farther out of town, you'll find a number of lodges and hotels, positioned in scenic coastal spots or along the main roads of the island's interior, with the latter providing particularly convenient access to the national park areas.
