Sao Beach is the only beach in the island that is beautiful all through out the season. All time of the year. Other beaches are seasonal. It's really a beautiful place. Crystal clear blue water and fine white sand beach. The only downside, is that if you visit during the high season. It could be too crowded. The charm of... More

The best beach in phu quoc island. White sand, clean water, and nice view. Of all the beach I've been, Sao beach is the best! Go at paradiso "dont matter", they have the nice spot in Sao beach.

Perfect beach experience. If you're comfortable, rent a motorbike for an easy 30-minute ride from the Long beach area. If you don't want the trash, just park your bike and walk north on the beach, towards Paradiso. It's quieter, cleaner, and a perfect spot to spend the day. Bring enough water because the water there is insanely overpriced.

Worth the trip to São Beach (from Long Beach it's 30mins) We hired a car & driver for the day & did some adventuring around the island - stopped at various places then landed at Sao Beach. You can hire chairs & towels on the beach, beers get served to you & the water was amazing! Much like all the... More

Beautiful white sand beach, clear warm waters, and beautiful surrounding views. The piles of garbage thrown up, and accumulated on the beach, took away from some of the ambience. But unfortunately it's part of the culture. Definitely enjoyed the overall experience of relaxing, and enjoying the day.
