Although it has opinion of the nicest beach on Phu Qouc it's quite quiet compering to Long Beach. If you need to get away from crowds it's a place to go. Prices for chairs and in restaurants are much lower.

Here is my experience: I looked around and ended up picking Novotel Resort. It was pretty nice! Beach front resort, a couple infinity pools and it's own beach. Here is my warning: most, if not all, of the beaches have... More
