Long Beach is the epicenter of all tourist related activities on the island. Here you can swim, snorkel, kayak, jet ski, SUP (stand up paddle board), and more. If you want to relax and soak in the sun, all of the resorts found along the beach offer sun loungers or you can use one of the many found at a variety of beach front restaurants. For some relaxation, you can receive a lovely massage right on the beach for a couple of dollars provided by one of the seasoned masseuses. There are a lot of places to eat, drink, and party on or off the beach as well. It’s an experience not to be missed. Due to its popularity and the rise of tourism in Phu Quoc, there is now a constant stream of beach vendors who patrol the sands peddling their wares and services. These include the sale of cold drinks, coconut juice, fresh fruit, and even seafood.

Where is Long Beach Located On Phu Quoc?


The west coast stretching from just north of An Thoi Town to the Duong Dong River in Duong Dong Town is considered “Long Beach” but technically this is not true.  “Long Beach”, which is approximately 20kms in length, is divided into two zones: North Long Beach and South Long Beach.

South Long Beach

South Long Beach is partly located in Duong Down Town, Duong To Village, and An Thoi Town along the west coast of the island and this section of the beach is approximately 15kms in length.  In An Thoi Town, certain sections that comprise of “South Long Beach” are known locally as Xep Beach, Dai Do Beach, Duong Co Beach, Duong Xanh Beach, and Vuon Dua Beach.  This long stretch of beach starts near An Thoi Town and ends by the estuary just south of the Eden Resort. While North Long Beach is known for being the epicenter of all tourist related activities, South Long Beach is mostly abandoned.  Apart from a few pearl farms, herds of cows, dilapidated fishing boats and makeshift ramshackle fishing villages, there is not much infrastructure present.  If you are looking for solitude and you do not want to escape the city limits, you can find it here.
