  • Sao Beach


  •  
    Located on the east side of the island, Sao Beach is another beach that attracts a large number of tourists worldwide annually. In reality, Sao Beach ranks high amongst best beaches in Vietnam as well as Southeast Asia. Also known in Vietnamese as Bãi Sao, this beach is about 7 kilometers of white sandy area. Being famous for the white sand, Sao Beach features with warm, calm and distinctive turquoise clear blue color. The sand here is a little slope but no sudden drop. Besides, because the ocean here is rather shallow, it is safe for non-swimmers and children to play around.

    Moreover, during low tide, tourists could see sand ripples that resemble a sand bar. This destination is also great for photo taking, especially during low tide in the morning. Before being discovered and renovated for tourism, a few years ago, Sao Beach was pristine. However, nowadays, the development of tourism in this region also affects somehow to the environment surrounding. Under the water, there are a lot of types of small fish, shell fish, a small squid and needle nose fish. For those who want to snorkel, there are some areas at the north and south end of the beach which are ideal for snorkeling. In September and October, tourists will find a variety of starfish near the seashore.

    Sometimes, you can even see a sea urchin, yet they might be rare here. Today, though Sao Beach is different than it used to be several years ago, it is still one of the most attractive Phu Quoc island attraction tourists cannot skip. Visiting here, tourists will find a few high quality beach front resorts, tour operators, bars, water sport operators, kayaks, wind surfers, powerboats, fishing boats, beach vendors and more. The best thing of this beach is itself. Tourists could walk up and down the beach and then look for snails, crabs, and many other small crustaceans. Furthermore, in the far southern and northern part of this beach, tourists could enter the jungle through a few small trails made by locals. It is rather tricky for tourists to access this beach. Maybe, you need some help from locals in order to get there. If you take a taxi, it will not be hard to find this beach, yet keep in mind that it is a little bit isolated.
