5 unspoiled best beaches in Phu Quoc Island
Phu Quoc is regarded as Vietnam’s pearl island because of its white sandy beaches and beautiful shoreline. People are drawn to this location because of its natural beauty, which is pristine and untouched. Let’s experience Phu Quoc’s unique and gorgeous scenery!
Sao Beach (Star Beach)
The most beautiful beach on the island is Sao Beach, located in the south of Phu Quoc. Sao Beach lacks the bustling, hectic, modern atmosphere of Nha Trang and the dreamy beauty of Lang Co, but what draws visitors here is the clean, serene, tranquil landscape. With white sand and crystal blue sea, it appears that visitors have been closer to nature, closer to the entire natural beauty, but there is always the sensation that they will never be able to touch and feel it all. First time to Sao Beach, people may be attracted by the beautiful scenes but actually, they are not the reason why tourists linger this place so much, the thing that makes the tourists want to come back here is the comfortable, relaxed, peaceful, and quiet feeling that you can only have at Sao Beach, letting people immerse themselves in nature and forget all the worries.
Khem Beach locates in the south and has an arc shape with lustrous green trees growing along. When walking along this beach, you easily see a scene of fishermen fishing, people can visit some fishing villages to enjoy the seafood which is freshest and has the most “Phu Quoc feeling”. In particular, we can mention Sardine Salad spread to be extremely delicious among the travelers and considered to be one of the specialties of Khem Beach you must taste once when coming here. A proper way of eating Sardine Salad is to mix it with scraped coconut, roasted peanut, fried onion, add lime juice and eat with different main dishes depending on each person’s taste, such as use fresh vegetables rolled in rice paper and dip in Phu Quoc fish sauce. It can be said that Khem Beach is one of the most successful beaches in Vietnam in combining local cuisine and beautiful natural scenery.

Unlike Sao Beach, which has white sand, Dai Beach is located in the northwest of Phu Quoc island and is known for its golden sandy beach beside the deep blue ocean. It was named one of the world’s most unspoilt beaches by an Australian travel website (www.concierge.com). Tourists may easily go from Dai Beach to Dong Duong pier to rent fishing boats and snorkel at Hon Dam or Hon Doi Moi. In the evening, they may stroll from Dai Beach to Dinh Cau night market, go on a shopping tour, and sample famous delicacies such as Phu Quoc sea urchin gruel, view pearls, and notably taste Phu Quoc fish sauce prepared from fresh tasty anchovies. Therefore, when visiting Dai Beach, travelers should choose a hotel near the beach to easily participate in the activities on the beach as well as for convenience for travel.
Vung Bau Beach
Vung Bau Beach is located close to Dai Beach in the north of Phu Quoc island, 40 kilometers from the town center of Duong Dong. Vung Bau Beach is well-known for its white smooth sand and the ethereal beauty of nature; visitors may swim in the sun and enjoy the calm sensation of sea and land. This location is becoming increasingly appealing to young people who enjoy hiking and shooting unique and exceptional photos of Phu Quoc Island. So, in order to prevent not being able to locate a room to stay, you should reserve ahead of time if you come here on weekends or holidays.
Ong Lang Beach
Ong Lang Beach is located in the north of the island, and farther north lies Cua Can and Vung Bau. Unlike the other beaches on Phu Quoc island, which have long sandy beaches, Ong Lang Beach is distinguished by its towering, dramatic cliffs that protrude into the water. The sea is like a paper with the most amazing natural image that we can only view at Ong Lang Beach, especially when the sun light is pouring down on the crystal blue ocean and tranquil waves, it has become an ideal site for those who appreciate capturing photographs of dawn and sunset at sea.
Because it is located far from the mainland, the trip time of 3 to 4 days will allow you to appreciate the pristine beauty of Phu Quoc to the maximum. During the summer and vacations, Phu Quoc is the best place to go for leisure tourism, team building events, and honeymoons. So, if you want to enjoy Vietnam’s pure and untouched beauty, perhaps nothing beats a trip to Phu Quoc!
