At Ganh Dau you can stock up on basic supplies along with petrol, water, some food items and also a haircut before you venture into the Phu Quoc National Park Trail nearby. This village will give you a taste of the lifestyle that was once the norm on Phu Quoc,  a place where you will see anchovies drying out in the sun ready for the fish sauce factories, children playing and plenty of fishing boats in the harbor.

  • Observe Local Life: The most enjoyable thing to do here is to ride your motorbike or bicycle down towards the coast where the fishermen are and observe how the locals live. Be warned that the area is littered with garbage.

Peppercorn Beach Resort Review: This resort is located on Ganh Dauh Fisherman Beach and consists of 12 bungalows and is located up north in Ganh Dau Village, which is about an hour away from the Phu Quoc International Airport. The resort is owned by Australians Robert and Linh and operated by local Vietnamese staff and family members.  The resort aims to be an eco friendly beach front resort which is evident by the few solar panels found here. It is right on the beach overlooking Cambodia. There is no swimming pool nor any sun loungers on site.
