Sao Beach: A Paradise In Phu Quoc, Vietnam
After taking a cable car to Pineapple island, we visited Sao Beach – one of the most beautiful beaches on Phu Quoc island, Vietnam. This place is dubbed paradise in Phu Quoc, with a white sandy coastline and rows of palm trees.
This article is a handy guide to Sao Beach Phu Quoc, including tips on how to get there, things to do, and more.

You can also join day tours exploring Southern Phu Quoc.
The day tours include a trip to Sao beach and other activities such as snorkeling to other islands in the An Thoi archipelago or a cable car experience to Pineapple island.
Best places to stay near Sao Beach

However, if you’d like to enjoy the fun nightlife, you should stay in Duong Dong town. Check out my guide for the best bars in Phu Quoc.
Things to do at Sao beach
Relax and swim
Sao Beach is sheltered from winds by mountains at either end, so the waves are very gentle.
Seawater at Sao beach is quite peaceful, warm with turquoise color. The beach slope is not too deep, so it’s suitable for children and those who do not know how to swim.
Also, the sand in Sao beach has a beautiful color, not yellow like Nha Trang beach, nor dark yellow like Vung Tau beach but white as cream.
We enjoyed lying on the sunbed, enjoying the scenery with a cold breeze wind.
Participate in outdoor activities
Visiting Sao beach, you can participate in different outdoor activities such as riding a jet ski, kayaking, windsurfing, fishing, snorkeling, and viewing the coral reefs.
The price for a jetski is from 350,000 – 400,000 VND for 15 minutes, and windsurfing costs 800,000 VND.

In addition to admiring the beautiful natural scenery, you can also enjoy the famous products of this place: herring salad, grilled sea urchin, sea urchin porridge, or crab.
