Sao beach

Nice beach but dirty if they don't keep up with the trash. Lots of places to get out of the sun and have a beer, very affordable.

Nice beach but the surrounding area is not clean. Easy to find better beaches in Phu Quoc. I wouldn't spend my time and money in the restaurants on the beach

The sand is powdery white and would be wonderful if you didn't have to watch your step for all the garbage. It's so beautiful but just made me feel sad because of how it's being treated. The one end that has Paradiso Restaurant is the only area that is clean. Would be a 5 star beach if not for the... More

Go here before it's too late ! The left end side of the beach is where you wanna go. Clean beach, clean water, just perfect. Absolut in top 5 of beaches I visited in the world comparing with beaches from all over Europe, Thailand, Malaysia, Borneo, Philippines, Australia and the Caribbean. The chairs cost 150.000 - rather expensive - but... More

Spoiled by too many establishments and road was horrible. Sewage leaking onto beach and no shady spots unless you pay for an umbrella. Not worth it.

I heard this beach was an unreal vista of white sands - which it is. But the perfect scenery is almost completely ruined by all of the garbage. People literally are picking one meter sections between garbage piles to lay on this beach. It was so disappointing.

Nice Long Beach but in my mind nothing special. I would still go to visit just o have seen it but it's not a must if your low on time on the island.
