Phu Quoc Island

Phu Quoc Island Map

“Phu Quoc is a small island with lots to offer. I really enjoyed the serenity of some of the secluded resorts as well as the bustling night-market where we enjoyed an amazing fresh seafood BBQ one evening. Yum!”

Enfys Maloney, Team Leader

For an island retreat we love idyllic Phu Quoc, just a short flight from Ho Chi Minh City. Phu Quoc is just 50km long and 20km wide; largely mountainous and densely forested. Most people live and work around the coast, and the island offers many secluded bays, amazing seafood, magnificently clear waters and great diving and snorkeling opportunities in season.

Long Beach on the west of the island is known for its bustling beach resorts where visitors can enjoy beach relaxation alongside vibrant evenings. Before tourist came to Phu Quoc it was known for its world class fish sauce production, quality peppercorns and also for its pearls. Much of the islands' roads are still unpaved, and although a considerable amount of development is forecasted for the near future in Phu Quoc the island is a great option for those wanting a beach stay as part of their tour of Vietnam.
