Khem Beach

This is one of the most gorgeous beaches in Phu Quoc with its white sand and crystal-clear water. Although it is not as spacious or long as Truong Beach, it still has much to offer. At the south of Khem Beach (Bai Khem), there is an old well called Fairy Well. Although its position is near the sea, the water here is totally fresh. Local seafood is also delicious and fresh, with several fishing villages located nearby.

Khem Beach is located on the south of Phu Quoc like Bai Sao. This beach is 25 km from the center of Duong Dong Town. Visitors can rent a motorbike in town to ride there or simply take a taxi.

Ganh Dau Beach

Bound on the west by Cape Ganh Dau, 32 km from Duong Dong Town, this spot has more than just a beach to behold. Tourists can visit Nguyen Trung Truc Temple and enjoy its vast beauty, for instance. Although it’s only 500 m long, Ganh Dau is shielded by two mountains, one of which is Ta Lon of Cambodia.

The special experience visitors can enjoy at Ganh Dau Beach (Bai Ganh Dau) includes swimming and viewing the borderland between Vietnam and Cambodia. A boat service is also available, which take tourists to two islands offshore, Hon Ban and Hon Thay Boi.

Vung Bau Beach

Located in the northwestern part of Phu Quoc, Vung Bau Beach (Bai Vung Bau) is still relatively undeveloped, so its pristine beauty is still intact. For now, there are still only a few small resorts here.

This is really a place for those seeking tranquility. It is remote, so visitors can enjoy the feeling of having the whole area to themselves. From the beach, tourists can go to Hon Mong Tay Island, which is a great place for swimming, snorkeling and fishing.
