Sao Beach In Phu Quoc – Best Off The Beach Snorkeling Destination In Vietnam
On the idyllic island of Phu Quoc, Vietnam's largest island, lies Bai Sao Beach which is considered by most to be the most beautiful beach in all of Vietnam if not Asia – think soft powdery white sand and turquoise seas. Just off the northern section of the beach and only a meter from shore lies some of the best off-the-beach shore snorkeling in Vietnam (see video below). The water here is calm and the reef is shallow making it an ideal shore snorkeling site for people of all ages and swimming abilities. Most of the snorkeling spots in Vietnam are only accessible by boat however this snorkeling spot can be reached by foot and best of all, it is free!
To get to this shore snorkeling spot, just walk north along Bai Sao Beach until you reach an area that has a few scattered rocks. The coral, mainly hard coral, is directly in front of you and it is teeming with life.
