A beach holiday on the largest island of Vietnam, you are advised to relax on Phu Quoc beach and enjoy a sunrise vacation...

 

After being liberated on 30 April 1975, Phu Quoc has been converted into an ideal tourist destination for nature and sea lovers. Located in the Gulf of Thailand, the hear-shaped island lies just 62 nautical miles from Rach Gia and nearly 290 nautical miles from Laem Chabang (Thailand). Phu Quoc has a monsoon sub-equatorial climate. Trips to Phu Quoc can be made all year round, but the best time is dry season when the sky is always sunny, clear and blue.

Pristine beaches here are seemingly captivating to those fond of unspoilted beauties. The one listed in the “World Hidden Beaches” is “Long Bank” (“Bãi Dài”), which is most beautiful from October to March. The beach honorably ranks higher in the list to many other world famous beaches, such as Wildcat Beach in California, the USA, Pink Beach in Barbuda, or Cayo Costa State, south Florida and so forth. The fresh sea breezes and stunning sandy beaches touching crystal clear blue waters make Phu Quoc beach a true paradise.

You can come here by ship or airplane (Ho Chi Minh City – Phu Quoc Flight). Swimming, sun bathing, boat-sailing, scuba-diving, etc. are all the exciting and relaxing seaside activities, healthful for every individual tourist. There is some nice coral to see and if you are lucky you might see a bamboo shark. After about an hour dipping yourself in the cool and clean blue sea water, imagine that you are now served with a series of especially tasty seafood; you would feel like you were the happiest guy in the world!

Phu Quoc beach is an ideal heaven for relaxing, snorkeling and scuba diving. Scuba Diving were

introduced to the island during 2002 by Jeremy Stein, better known for his 5 Star diving and Instructor Training Centres in Nha Trang. So whilst diving is relatively new here you have a rare opportunity to be amongst  the first to dive this area and to discover new dive sites. 

In case you has interest in the local fishing life, you may pay a visit to Ham Ninh fishing village, where the routine daily fishing work of the locals are available at your observation. Moreover, you will have a chance to enjoy the unique aromatic flavor of Phu Quoc fish sauce at a traditional fish sauce factory. At fish sauce workshops, you will be amazed at the sight of dozens of bulky barrels being lined up and waiting to be jammed with fresh fish. You will be tempted to try a few pungent green pepper coins and half a spoonful of the tasty salty sauce.

“You must visit Phu Quoc! The beach is so beautiful!”, a foreign tourist has said like that. Enjoy sunbathing on the pristine beach for most of the time. At other times take boat trips to the nearby islets for snorkeling, fishing and watching the sunset over the ocean...
