“Not nice at all”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 5, 2014

There was garbage all over the beach! We could not even find a place to lie down, so we just had to return home. It was a strong wind as well, and many waves.

“Pretty beach but!”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 1, 2014

I really liked the green color and clear ocean. The bad, this place has garbage accumulating in certain areas of the beach, with no signs of anybody caring doing much about it. A few more years of inaction and Sao beach won't be worth visiting.

“Can be dirty”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2014

This beach can get very dirty because of local tourists who visit the beach and do not dispose of their litter responsibly.

“Only enjoy the beach but do not spend a single USD there”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 27, 2014

The only reason to go to Sao Beach remains the location and the scenary. Do not rent a beach bed/umbrella to them (overexpensive) but just walk 200 m on the right to rest in a secluded area behind the rocks. The restaurant is the more appaling (they score high on high prices/poor quality/dubious hygiene/extremely poor English) I've ever seen in Vietnam.

“Nice but dirty”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2014

Very Nice Beach, but the restaurant and cafe at the Beach seemed closed and very dirty. The Beach was dirty but Nice. We went on our own and it was a little difficult to find the Beach.
