About Bai Truong

Bai Truong is a 20 km stretch of beach located just 10 minutes west of the Phu Quoc Airport.  The beach, however, is not continuous as the Song Tranh Estuary breaks the sand bar into 2 distinct zones – Bai Truong North and Bai Truong South.

Bai Truong North

The northern section of long beach is the busiest and oldest tourist hub on Phu Quoc Island. It is a heavily congested area with hostels, hotels, guesthouses, restaurants, bars, etc.   Prices here vary considerably and there are many bargains to be had.  The beach itself is also quite busy, especially during the sunset hours.   The backpacker hub of Long Beach is known as Long Beach Village. Here you will find a cheap food, motorbike rental places, and a public beach access area.

Bai Truong South

The southern section of Long Beach is where you will find the new luxury resorts, villas, shopping streets, pearl farms, a marina and upscale dining options.  Collectively this entire southern beach area is called the “Bai Truong Tourist Complex“.  The beach here is less crowded and some sections even have white sand, which has been imported from other areas.  Prices here tend to be on the higher side, but a small price to pay for more space and privacy. 

Top 10 Things to See in Bai Truong

When most people visit Phu Quoc, Vietnam's largest island, they normally stay in and around Long Beach (Bai Truong), which is Phu Quoc's most popular beach and the epicenter of all
tourist activity. Long Beach is located on the western side of the island and is more than 8kms in length. Although it is jam packed with hotels, resorts, and of course tourists the beach itself has some great things for you to see. Here are our Ten Things To SEE on Long Beach:

1. Hanging Palm Tree

If you are looking for that stereotypical low hanging beach-side palm tree, there is *one* on Long Beach. This palm is perfect for wedding pictures, selfies, and even to hang a hammock off of. You fill find this beautiful palm tree near the northern section of the beach.

2. Phu Quoc Mermaid

Phu Quoc's seas is a habitat for the critically endangered Dugong Dong aka Sea Mermaid however the chance of seeing this beautiful and elusive creature is very slim. You can, however, see a colorful rustic mermaid statue which is located near the backpacking area of Long Beach Village.

3. Dolphin Statue

Next to the mermaid statue is the kids favorite dolphin statue. There are dolphins in and around Phu Quoc but no one has seen one in decades. If you want to see a dolphin while on Phu Quoc then head on over to Vinpearl Land, Phu Quoc's very own theme park.

4. The Long Beach Pier

The rarely used pier is located next to the dolphin and mermaid statues and directly across from the Long Beach Resort. Get your selfie stick and smartphone ready as this is a great spot to take pictures.

5. The Long Beach “Rocks”

The Long Beach Rocks is just plain awesome. The Rocks is an area that consists of, well, rocks and it is located very close to the Long Beach Village area. This is the best spot to snorkel off the beach on Long Beach and you may even see a seahorse or two. Full moon parties are also held here. Look for coral embedded in the rocks and forage for wild ocean edibles.

6. The Beginning Of Long Beach

Here an estuary splits “Long Beach” into two sections – North Long Beach and South Long Beach. North Long Beach represents the established touristy area whereas South Long Beach represents an area where you will find newer 5 star resorts as well as vacation property. This is a great spot to view the coastal beach ecosystem of Phu Quoc.
