After taking a cable car to Pineapple island, we visited Sao Beach – one of the most beautiful beaches on Phu Quoc island, Vietnam. With white sandy coastline and rows of palm trees, this place is dubbed as paradise in Phu Quoc.
How to get to Sao Beach
Sao beach is located about 25km from Duong Dong town, so you can get there easily by motorbike, car, or taxi.
From the town, you go south along Tran Hung Dao street to highway 46, and you continue South for about 25 minutes.
Sao Beach day tour
You can also join day tours exploring Southern Phu Quoc.
The day tours include a trip to Sao beach and other activities such as a snorkeling trip to other islands in An Thoi archipelago or cable car experience to Pineapple island.
Best places to stay near Sao Beach
There are many hotels and guesthouses near Sao beach.
However, if you’d like to enjoy a more delightful nightlife, you should stay in Duong Dong town.
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 slope of the beach 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 very specific color, not yellow like Nha Trang beach, nor dark yellow like Vung Tau beach but white as cream.
