Sao is so cool. Very nice beach . If you will go there you will love it. But just one thing you need to forgive Vietnamese people the mess around the islands. Nobody teach them how to clean rabbish and recyclate . So sad

We went to this beach twice because the bay is big, the water was mostly calm so I could do my laps there. It's lovely because the sand is white and the water is very clear. However, I foresee that this will not last too...More

White sands and clear waters! However if you keep walking up you'll get the rubbish and debris from the bar and restaurants.

Great, clean unspoilt beach. Although October is off season and I understand it gets busy during peak season the beach is soft white sand with lovely warm water. Appeared to be just one eatery on the beach so would recommend bringing your own cool bag...More

It’s far from long beach and the town. The beach is not big. There’s a bar called Paradiso where you can pay 150k for a sun bed, it’s the most acceptable place around this area. Good thing is they accept credit cards.
