Long Beach, like the name implies, is a very long (approximately 20 km) stretch of yellow sand beach that is located just 10 minutes west of the 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, and upscale dining options. 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.
