If you are looking for that perfect beach, one with white powdery sand, turquoise clear water, swaying palm trees, jungle backdrop, and maybe a few bars to enjoy a cocktail or two while gazing out at the open ocean then Bãi Sao (Sao Beach) is your beach.
Located just 25 kilometers from Duong Dong, the islands capital, Bãi Sao's relaxed tropical lifestyle, quiet secluded beach, unspoilt nature, abundant amenities and easy access to the An Thoi archipelago, make it an ideal place for a day trip or a longer stay.
Bai Sao is that "postcard perfect" beach most travelers are searching for. You can spend your entire vacation on Phu Quoc Island here on Sao Beach and it would not be a wasted vacation.
Soft silky powdery white sand beach — one of the few found on the island.
In the ocean you will find schools of small fish, needle nose fish, and sometimes even a small squid. There are a few shell fish here as well. At the very north and south end of the beach there are a few areas where you will find corals and it makes for a good spot to snorkel. In October and September you will find a lot of starfish near the shore. Occasionally you will see a sea urchin, but they are very rare here.
One of the most romantic spots on the island and a top selfie spot is this simple wooden swing tied to a palm tree. The "Paradise Swing" can be found along the northern section of Bãi Sao Phú Quốc.
One of the few spots on Phu Quoc where you can actually kite surf.

Duong Dong is Phu Quoc's largest town and it is located along on the western coast of Phu Quoc island. Duong Dong is famous for its mighty river that bears the same name, temples, fish sauce factories, pepper farms, and of course the plentiful accommodation options available at all price points. Duong Dong is a busy urban place but there is electricity in the air. The town comes alive after the sun has set.
Nested in between Phu Quoc's two major towns (Duong Dong and An Thoi) lies Duong To, a vast central area that is home to the Bai Truong Tourist Complex, Phu Quoc's main tourist area. The Bai Truong Tourist Complex is often referred to as just "Long Beach", the literal translation of the Vietnamese words in English. Duong To is a hip modern commune with posh bars and restaurants, luxury beach resorts, and home to the Phu Quoc International Airport.
