I have to admit, I was disappointed. Supposedly one of Phu Quoc’s nicest beaches. It is long and wide and the sand is beautiful. You can walk out into the ocean a long way. The turn off, it’s littered with garbage and seaweed. I saw...More

Do not go - Serious health hazard! This beach has a lot of dogs and the sand contains worms eggs from their feces. The eggs go through your skin and a few days later ... you have worms in your feet (cutaneous larva migrans). If...More

The beach at Paradiso is definitely the best and cleanest part although it feels a tiny bit arteficial. If you came by motorbike you'll have to order a drink to park for free or pay 100.000VND parking fee. Beds are a whopping 150.000VND to rent,...More

We only went here once during our journey, but we liked it. We had lunch on the side of the beach that was on the end of it, further away from the centre with all the shops and so on. It was nice but nothing...More

Everybody says "nice beach". It's ok, nice to go there but not an amazing beach. If you have time you can go and take a rest otherwise if you miss the beach it's not important. Still many garbage on the sand.. but good view.

After seeing all the photos of this beautiful beach we were a little disappointed by the amount of rubbish on the beach and the number of activities happening: parasailing, jet-skis, etc Phu Quoc is a beautiful island still very young in their tourism history, they...More

Contrary to what I read so far, Soa Beach is really nice with just enough people around (99% Caucasians) for the place to feel alive. Water was really crystal clear and wonderful. A few debris washed up here and there but again nothing unusual. Surrounding...More

Having read reviews I was a little put off, but we went (twice) anyway. This is an amazing beach. It feels free from all the corporate resorts and built up manicured areas which I'm sure in 2-3 years will cover this island. We paid 180...More

Ask your hotel to call a taxi and they will take you there. We spent all day there and the taxi just waited for us all that time we were there, we asked him to do that and paid him for the entire day. I'm glad we did that... More
