We spent half the day at the Paradiso Beach club, Sao Beach - this part is kept very clean - soft white sand, clear water. It was a little rough when we went. We paid for the lounge chairs and got one free drink. Food was delicious. If you eat and drink there you get free parking - you need... More

We were a bit disappointed after seeing the incredible pictures of white sand and clear water! Our experience of the beach was a sad amount of rubbish both in and out of the water and numerous dogs with some horrendous skin conditions!! We asked one of the locals later about this weird disconnect and we're told that Sao beach is... More

There is plenty to do at Sao beach the only reason i havent given this beach a 5 star rating is because of the poor roads and signposts leading to the beach for the final 4kms which were very bumpy and uncomfortable on a moped. Other than that its great with beach volleyball courts and plenty of reasonably priced bars... More

Sao Beach has the reputation of being one of the most beautiful beaches in Vietnam. This seems to be season dependant. In November the prevailing winds make the water chopping and bring in the rubbish. July is apparently a better time to visit this beach.

Amazing sand and turquoise water. The food is not much or various but tasty and fresh. It is frequent among locals also it got crowded in the afternoon. Short but very nice beach with look good, palms, sand, restaurants, restrooms. White sand and crystal water. The water and the sand are still great but there parts were not for me.... More

The beach is lovely very windy when we visited though. Restaurants quite pricey compared to other places. They charge you to take a photo on the swing! But still worth a visit.

Very beautiful beach with white sand, but there was a lot of garbage lying around. Also the restaurangs in the area were not anything special.

Small part of the beach is nice while all the rest is full of garbage, so sad, why they don't clean their own beach?

Came with my partner mid November. Good beach bar with toilets, sinners and towels available aswell as two beach swings for good pictures. 2 men constantly sweeping rubbish coming in from the sea which is why I've only rated 3/5 but beach itself was kept clean.
