After a nice ride from Long beach on a motorcycle we arrived all excited to Bai Sao beach. We had heard that it was a nice place to see on Phu Quoc Island.

This beach is normally relatively quiet compared to Long Beach - there is a bit of a drive but well worth it for shallow waters and lots of your own beach space. There's also restaurants and jet skiing.

We spent the day here and travelled by motorbike to the longbeach side of the beach. The right hand turn. There is a nice large restaurant and bar. Also sunbeds can be hired for 60 dong a day. We had some lunch in the restaurant which was nice but a tad pricey. There are toilet and shower facilities here too.... More

This beach is beautiful and has great potential, it is just ruined by all the rubbish! The water is still clean and really nice for a swim. The rubbish is scattered all over the beach.

What more to say...white sand, clear blue sea...this is the perfect beach. Were a few people there, but didn't feel busy. Make sure you stop here when on Phu Quoc

Not what I thought , loved the sand but rubbish everywhere. Such a beautiful part of paradise here & if they kept it clean & treasured this place, it would make me happy. The water was so clear too. Lots of buses with tourists & no quiet paradise for me.

We arrived at bai sao after a day on the boat to the islands further south, to be honest I think it's one of the most beautiful beaches of the island, perhaps because there are only 2 hotels ..... however is really beautiful, white sand , curved palms on the beach, crystal clear water, sand crabs, ..... and much silence!...

The water is blue and clear. But the beach is dirty. Trash is every where. Don't waste your time visiting there

I was expecting way more. The beach wasn't "that nice". There was trash and also by the toilets/dressing rooms, it was just filty. Like no one cares about picking up trash. The sand was white and ocean was blue. But just little bit too much trash for my taste.
