Sao Beach, Phu Quoc Island
(2/5 based on 1,800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Was supposed to be pristine. It was not. Lots of garbage washed up on shore. The nearby buildings are dumping into the swimming areas off the beach 
  • Restaurants on the beach waiting for more day visitors and otherwise show no interest in the once beautiful beach
