We came here at the end of a trip with John's Tour. It's a beautiful location and lovely soft, white sand. There were clearly a lot of other tour company's here too and therefore a lot of people on the beach. I would be able to deal with that but there was a guy on a jet ski going up... More

White white sand and blue blue water with almost waves. After surviving the trip on a bike we paid for our seats and were served drinks and snack food and let the beauty of this place work its magic. Great place for a swim and photogenic ++ Worth a visit

It is the nicest beach on the island but very crowded and full of garbage and stray dogs. There is a number of restaurants so spending a day here can be comfortable if you don't mind the masses. It's said to be more quiet in the morning, but we went in the afternoon.

Probably the best beach in Phu Quoc island, very clean water, almost crystalline. We visited almost every beach on the island, and certainly for my taste this beach is the best for its beauty

Lovely ride on the moped to get there. Very easy to find. Gorgeous beach! Best one on Phu Quoc. Not crowded and bars have great beach lounges and umbrellas that you can use for free, we ate lunch at the Beach house but layed there for about 1hr before we even ordered and no one seemed to mind.

This beach is just wornderful, not so many toursits. Maybe the only drawback is the high prices in restaurant, but you have to pay for the view on the sea, I guess

Simply the most beautiful island in Vietnam, Phu Quoc is liberally sprinkled with picture-perfect white-sand beaches and cloaked in dense, impenetrable jungle. Long Beach is sophisticated, Ong Lan Beach is romantic, and Bai Sao is simply irresistible, but the tourism and travel services are still limited.
