It's so easy to get there with 45 mins motorbike driving. Lots of good and cheep seafood restaurants to choose. From May till August, the tide turns so lots of trashes were drifted from Cambodia and Thai Land beaches. It's still beautiful though. The water is pristinely clear and so shallow so you feel like you're swimming in a giant... More

This beach was the most beautiful beach we've been to in Vietnam. Turquoise clear warm water perfect for swimming.

This could be one of the worlds greatest beaches apart from the fact it's off the beaten track, a good bike ride away from the main road. The roads there are pretty treacherous but they are being built since the new airport arrived. There are only a few very small hotels there and they are 2-3 star. There is limited... More

This is a lovely place. We persuaded (forcefully) our taxi driver to take us to Paradiso Restaurant at the quieter north end of the beach. It is clearly sign posted. Taxis want to take you to Long Beach Resort because they get some kind of kickback. Anyway Paradiso is quieter and the food good. The water visibility was poor (July)... More

We arrived to the beach at the end of a snorkeling trip but unfortunately the rain was coming down hard and we didn't stay put. Water was warm, beach was pretty clean, would have loved to have had an opportunity to go back!

This beach the water is clearer and many actitives going on. Many People were there everyday. With a few of restaurants around, food no problem at all. If they can keep the place more clean, it will be so much more better.

Beautiful beach with beautiful surroundings. However a shame it is slightly ruined by the locals using it as a rubbish tip in some parts. Has so much potential is looked after a bit more.

If it is compared to the Long Beach or Patong beach in Phuket, this beach is definitely much better. However, it pales in comparison to Tioman Island, Rawa island, or Phi Pi. Worth a visit if you are there but not to die for. Affordable seafood and affordable beer.
