"Vietnam's top spot for beaching yourself!" Top 5 Page for this destination Phu Quoc by worldkiwi

Phu Quoc Travel Guide: 113 reviews and 297 photos

Phu Quoc (pronounced fu kwok) is a medium sized island off the south west coast of Vietnam, close to the Cambodian border. The island is ringed by sandy beaches. The best beaches appear to be on the eastern side and at the southern end of the west coast. Most of the main hotels are located on the western beach nearer the centre of that coast. Sadly, many or Phu Quocs reputably finest beaches are closed to the public because the military have built bases on them (I wonder if they're bases or holiday places for the top brass!).
Phu Quoc is a sleepy little place, which makes it a great get-away spot. There's no noisy nightlife, no shopping... just lots of hot sunshine, beaches, and a national park. A great place to take a good book, some suntan cream, your togs (swimming suit) and relax!

Highlights of Phu Quoc Island.

The highlights of Phu Quoc Island for me were:
1. Bai Sao Beach, on the east coast;
2. The peace and quiet;
3. The hot, sunny, blue-sky days;
4. The lack of traffic;
5. The sand on all the beaches is so soft.
This is a place to come and unwind. I hope it stays that like and more people can experience it.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Quiet, sunny, hot, many sandy beaches, relaxing, no traffic!
  • Cons:Can get VERY hot, lack of transport other than motorbikes.
  • In a nutshell:The most relaxing place in Vietnam??
