Until now, Phu Quoc island is not one of the most famous beach of Vietnam so the beach here is beautiful and clean. I has the feeling of discovering new raw beach. If you want to relax and enjoy the beauty of the sea only. This is the good play to come. But if you like the crowd and convenience... More

We had our private driver take us around the island randomly and he took us here. I'm not sure if drivers make a commission off of you for bringing you here, but I saw some type of exchange with our driver and the girl welcoming us in. The beach is gorgeous and very calm so you can wade around in... More

it locates away from the main district but not too difficult to get there, love its clean, white sand, the water temperature is nice to be in....a good place to just relax and contemplate. The food price in the restaurants here surprisingly decent for its being in a remote place. would love to come back here.

This beach provided a calm spot suitable for swimming when Long Beach was rough! It has soft white sand and there is clearly spots where the rubbish has been collected and other places where it hasnt. The beach has a segregated feel to it, in the middle is the vietnamese section, lots of people swimming in a small area, jetskis,... More

The beach is absolutely spectacular with white sand and celeste waters with hills surrounding each side. It would not be amiss to describe it as paradise, and certainly the most stunning beach in Vietnam. One can walk quite far in with your beer and just take in the beauty of the surroundings Reading other reviews, I must say that when... More
