Overview Of The Caves on Phu Quoc

There are a number of caves in Phu Quoc, however most of them are either not accessible at the moment or have not being fully explored. The two most popular caves are known as a) Bat Cave and b) Yen Cave.

Bat Cave

The Bat Cave (“Hang Doi” or “Doi Cave”) is the most popular cave and it is famous for its’ stalactites and stalagmites formations and its large population of bats. The Bat Cave is located past the Tranh Stream waterfall and the trail leading to the cave is not as developed. To get there, follow the narrow dirt path up over the waterfall and continue walking for another 30 minutes.

The cave is dark and the ceiling is low at some points so it is advised that you bring a flashlight.  Locals claim that there are pythons in the cave as well, but we didn’t see any.



Yen Cave

The Yen Cave is the second most popular cave however it is somewhat inaccessible to most tourists as it is near a military zone north of Starfish Beach. The Yen Cave is smaller than the Bat Cave however it does have stunning views of the Gulf of Thailand.

Good footwear and a flashlight are a must when exploring all the caves in Phu Quoc, and be aware of slippery paths, low ceilings, and a variety of snakes and spiders inhabiting these caves.

Chao Mountain Cave

The Chao Mountain (382 meters high)  is located in the northern part of the Phu Quoc National Park.  The area around the mountain is rich in flora and fauna as well as numerous caves.  These caves are currently inaccessible to tourists at the moment however there are plans on making these caves into an ecotourism attraction.  We will update this page as soon as we receive more information from the Vietnamese tourism officers.
