Gorgeous beaches of Phú Quốc Island have won love and recognition as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Besides that, beaches of this island own several prestigious awards for their outstanding ecological indexes. Long Beach remains the most famous coastal area of the island. This beach is well-kept and cleaned all year round. As the infrastructure of Long Beach develops every season, it now has absolutely everything needed for a comfortable stay. There are several popular hotels and restaurants nearby, but tourists need to remember that this place is quite crowded during the peak season.
Phu Quoc sunset Steep bottom is one of the main disadvantages of Long Beach. The depth of water is already 2 meters just ten meters away from the shore, so this beach is not the best choice for tourists with small children. As a rule, families like Ong Lang Beach more. The water is shallow near the coast and it is transparent and clear. There are numerous palm trees not far from the water, so Ong Lang remains comfortable even in the midst of a hot day as vacationers can always sit under the shade of trees. Bai Dai Beach is widely recognized as one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Despite such a prestigious title and popularity, it is an incredibly peaceful and calm place.
