General information May Rut Ngoai Island – Phu Quoc Island Guide – Phu Quoc Map:
With coordinates about 9°54’39.9’’ North latitude, 103°59’28.2’’ East longitude, May Rut Ngoai Island is located in the South of May Rut Trong (Hon Vong) Island. This island has both beach and coral reef but in short not so special. A local family has been living on the island for decades as their ancestors came here early when it was a deserted island many decades ago. There is a wide local sea-food restaurant in a garden of coconut trees but it has poor standards of food hygiene.
We don’t highly appreciate the beauty of the beach here because during Dry season it is a rocky as well as wavy beach because the beach faces to the East side which will be influenced by the Northeast monsoon. The photo below is the view of the beach of the island in Dry season. Beside that it is usually crowded and noisy here as speedboats carry tourists here for lunch. (Check out Phu Quoc weather in detail here)
From our experience if you don’t want to get into crowded place then this place is not appropriate for you. Besides that it is almost impossible to enjoy the beach during Dry season because of threads from Northeast waves and sharp limestone on the beach.
May Rut Ngoai Island – Geography – Phu Quoc Island Guide – Phu Quoc Map:
You will have a clear visibility of May Rut Ngoai island from the beach of May Rut Trong (Hon Vong) island. Not like May Rut Trong (Hon Vong) island, the beach of May Rut Ngoai island will have beautiful sand only in Rainy season as sedimentation of sand will happen for the East side, caused by the flow of water, but Rainy season is not appropriate time if you would like to enjoy the beauty of Phu Quoc.
The location of the beach of May Rut Ngoai Island is at the point A1 in the photo below, it’s a small beach around almost 100 m long.
The photo below is panorama view of the spot A1, it possesses a rocky beach during Dry season as you are seeing. Hardly anyone wants to stay at the rocky as well as small beach as they still have other better choices such as May Rut Trong (Hon Vong) Island or spot A4 of Pineapple (Hon Thom) island.
During Dry season speedboats take tourist to the spot A3 – the spot of anchoring during Dry season then take guest to the restaurant right beside the spot A1 by a small lane.
Three photos above are few scenes of the restaurant on the island. You will have lunch in a coconut trees garden, some of you are interested but other people are not because it lacks airy space as you will be sitting under the shade of coconut trees among the crowded of hundreds of people as well as a noisy atmosphere.
May Rut Ngoai Island – Coral reefs – Things to do in Phu Quoc:
Spot A2 is the location of a small coral reef, if you would like to enjoy easy snorkeling then you can put this spot into your consideration. It has some big Table corals however it lacks coral reef biodiversity.
It is possible to visit this spot in either Dry or Rainy season.
