Travel experience in Ong Lang beach
Unlike the famous beaches in Phu Quoc, Ong Lang beach seems to be out of the flow of life which is strangely unspoiled and peaceful.
Let’s explore Bai Ong Lang with Focus Asia Travel!
Bai Ong Lang is located on the west coast of Phu Quoc Island, more than 6 km from Duong Dong town. The beach does not stretch continuously but is interrupted by rocks interspersed with sand. Although it is not as beautiful as Sao beach, Khem beach or as crowded and bustling as Truong beach, Ong Lang beach still has its own attraction. It is a poetic beauty with rows of cool green trees running along the coast, a golden sandy beach gently sloping, a rare turquoise blue sea water.
Bai Ong Lang is also one of the most beautiful places to watch the sunset in Phu Quoc. Especially, the rocky area near Mango Bay resort when the sunset falls becomes attractive. The time to travel here is from November to April.
From the center of Duong Dong – Cua Can street to the north of the island about 4.5 km, looking on the left hand side, you will see a big road into the sea with many signs, going 1 further km to Ong Lang beach. If you use Google Maps, you should search the way to Dinh Ba, Ong Lang hamlet. There are two ways to go to Ong Lang beach: One way is down from Dinh Ba, and the other is down to Eco Beach Resort.
