Nice beach but it gets crowded later in the day. Pay 30,000 dong for just a chair which was nice. Beach is kind of dirty though, saw some trash floating in the water.. what a shame.

The beach looks so incredible. It´s one of best beaches at Phu Quoc island. You must love the white sand and palms over the sea. In January you can expect bigger waves, during our visit was impossible to swim or very carrefully. In this time going many rubbish from sea, so on some places was a lot of mess and... More

There was loads of litter, stray animals Roaming and loads of tourists. It's not beautiful, it's just ruined by unsustainable tourism.

We were warned of the tourists and warned of the rubbish so I guess we came here just to tick it off and check it out first hand. My wife and I actually thought this beach was pretty good. When you're driving down the dirt road towards the beach and you come to the fork in the road the signs... More

Parts of Sao Beach offer sugar sand, clean, swimmable ocean, and a tourist melodrama-free day trip. The far ends, however, gather enough flotsam and jetsam to have one wonder why the government just doesn't keep such natural wonders clean!? We went back twice, and lounged, ate, and drank outside of Paradiso. Highly recommended.

Very clear, clean water that was very comfortable swimming in, a lot of thrash on the beach though, which kind of takes away from the overall experience.

I would recommend everyone to visit, it is a kind of change as it is little far from main tourist area in the Island

The way to the beach is best described "adventurous" it seems like you are going to a sketchy place instead of a beautiful beach. At some point on the road you need to choose between 2 beach resorts. There is no other way onto the beach. Fortunately you can just walk trough the resort without having to buy anything. Then... More

This is just a must when on the island. We've been to Paradiso beach club where a lounger is 150kvnd for a day. Pricey but worth it. It's more calm than the other beach clubs on the other end of the beach. We also had lunch there, over 100kvnd for a main dish, again pricey. If you want peace, clean... More

Overall the beach is nice with sandy beach. However, lots of rubbish here and there. It would be a great beach if maintained better.
