Located in Southeast Phu Quoc, 8 km away from the Southernmost town of Phu Quoc – An Thoi town in the North by East or 25 km away from the main town of Phu Quoc – Duong Dong in the South by East. The name’s origin was due to the fact that the beach was the home for starfishes during Dry season in the past but nowadays it is quite difficult to find out the appearance of starfishes here. Sao Beach is around 1 km long, this is a shallow sparkling watery beach during Dry season. Possessing thin white sands makes Sao Beach extraordinary beautiful.

Down to the South of Sao Beach is another famous beach – Kem Beach however Kem Beach is no longer opened for the public using anymore.
Bai Sao – White sand Beach – Tips for you – Things to do in Phu Quoc:
On the way leading into Sao Beach from the joint road, you will certainly meet few separated lanes, each way will lead you to different spots at Sao Beach, and our recommendation for those who want to enjoy quiet as well as clean space which has a good standard of hygiene then you should visit Paradiso beach club such as they have staffs cleaning the beach regularly and put a limitation on a number of guests but the price is still affordable. Most of the other spots have horribly dirty toilets from which I want to stay away. Besides the standard of hygiene is the number of guests. A
s Phu Quoc’s tourism is on the strong rise then there are more and more people want to visit famous places on the island, Sao Beach is one of among those ones, then you will absolutely find the beach crowded at most of the spots along with 1km long of the coastline.

The beach at Paradiso is quite wide also not like other spots that almost have narrow beaches as they take advantage of the area to extend their restaurant in uncreative manners.

The photo below was taken in the Rainy season as Sao Beach become home to big wooden boats owning to the tranquil sea area here during the Rainy season. During the rainy season Sao Beach becomes shallower as sand sedimentation caused by the flows of water, besides that water will get dirty as a large volume of water brought down to the island by heavy rains from roads, the forest will flow down to the beach.
