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.
