Sao Beach, Phu Quoc Island

1.8
#1 of 21 in Outdoors in Phu Quoc Island
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.

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.
