Phu Quoc Holidays

Situated at the southern tip of Vietnam in the Gulf of Thailand close to the Cambodian border, Phu Quoc is Vietnam's largest offshore island (about the size of Singapore) but, for now, is relatively undeveloped. Awaiting you are spectacular soft-sand beaches, swaying palms and sparkling crystalline waters with a flourishing marine life.

While the tear-shaped island's coastline has almost non-stop beaches the longest stretch of sands is called, appropriately, Long Beach, which is on the western coast and is where the majority of hotels and resorts can be found. Its location on the west coast makes it the best place for sitting back with a cocktail and watching as the sun sets over the ocean. Other beaches include the beautiful peninsula of Cua Can, the peaceful Bai Dai Beach, Vung Bau Beach and Bai Vong Beach.

For divers and snorkellers much of the island's treasures are hidden below the clear blue waves, as the panorama is one of colourful corals and tropical fish. Along with the marine environment over 50% of the island has been given protected National Park status and limited walking trails are a great way to experience the natural splendour of mountain jungle and sparkling waterfalls.

The island is also dotted with picturesque fishing villages where regular bustling markets are held and offer a colourful range of fruit, vegetables, seafood and much more. Phu Quoc is also famed for the production of fish sauce and is, arguably, the best in the world! For a completely unique experience, it's possible to visit one of the many fish sauce distilleries in either Duong Dong or An Thoi towns.

Travel information

Best time to go

he island enjoys a tropical climate and can be visited year round. There are two seasons: dry from November to April when temperatures are around 25-28ºC and the humidity is lower. The rainy season, from July to September, is when the sea can get rough and diving is restricted. The remaining months of April-June and late October bring higher temperatures (around 35ºC) and high humidity, so rain can also be expected.
