Why Bai Dai Beach is special ?

Bai Dai, set on the north-west coast of Phu Quoc, is 26km by road (motorbike only) from Duong Dong, and it takes about 30 minutes to get here by boat. Bai Dai is the biggest & wonderful island of Vietnam. Bai Dai is a remote paradise with sunshine, warm water and peaceful atmosphere. Coming to Bai Dai from October to March, tourists are going to enjoy how wonderful it is, for the island being in dry season


The beach and the island are also featured in CNNGo's 20 idyllic beach getaways in May 2010


The water here is crystal clear, the sand virgin yellow/white, and there are coral islands only 10 minutes by canoe from the shore. Heading up the coast here from Duong Dong, look out for the anchovies and squid drying on racks on the side of the road. The anchovies are used to make nuoc mam, Phu Quoc's most famous (and pungent) product. Just offshore rises Turtle Island (Doi Moi), a snorkeler's delight with coral reefs and tropical fish galore. Look at it from the shore and decide if it really looks like a turtle.



It is poor and sleepy now, but Bai Dai Beach could end up looking like a wealthy piece of Florida or California. The Dai Beach development plan by the Starbay Millennium Group envisages beach-front hotels, an artificial lagoon, luxury villas, condominiums, two golf courses, amusement parks, up to 50 restaurants and sports facilities. There are villas already on sale which when built will have their own swimming pools, carp-filled ponds and double garages opening on to American style suburban streets. Who knows, there could even be a McDonald’s drive-through on one of these streets one day!

What to explore at Bai Dai Beach?

There’re many options to spend your daytime: soak up the sun and indulge in Vietnamese culture, do a snorkeling and scuba fishing, or let a yacht take you to fish. Try something you’ve never done before like squid fishing, wind sailing and jet skiing, all sounds incredibly crazy, but why not? It’s Phu Quoc! In addition, abundant seafood and local specialties will tease your taste buds!

When the night arrives, however, you’ll see there is not much to do. The beach resumes its original serenity and peace, leaving a romantic chance for those who are often trapped in real life and seldom watch the natural beauty of the world. Roam in the beach, have a bonfire aside the tent, meditate, reflect, vision. Bai Dai knows your worries so it helps take them away.

How to get to Bai Dai Beach?

To get their you should take a taxi or motorbike. You can travel the long dirt road from Cua Can beach or go on the new sealed road to Vin Pearl Themepark and turn at the lane just before the Park, and follow it back to Bai Dai.

Taxi is easiest as they will wait however long you want and take you back. It is about a 30 min. drive from Long Beach

Tips for you

  • Bring your own food and water
    What to bring
  • There was a great looking cafe with hammocks but had no food only drinks.
    Things nearby
  • Long Beach has its share of vendors, but the only things they sell are bodycare services such as massages, manicures, and hair plucking. There's no fruit hawkers as Long Beach is lined with bungalow operations that have their own restaurants, so a cold drink or piece of pineapple is never far away.

It will take you hours to drive to this lovely 6km long, unspoilt and isolated beach in the far eastern northern part of Phu Quoc island, but once you get there it's worth it. Virtually deserted, clean water, long stretches of yellow sand, with plenty of places to picnic. Though, I was warned not to leave my vehicle out of sight.You must take the main road north from Duong Dong (no easy matter in itself unless you have GPS) plain sailing for many, many kilometres along a well-made and scenic sealed highway through the forest. We took a detour left and visited Chez Carole's for a cup of coffee and didn't regret it.But once off the bitumen highway, the coast road to this far northern beach becomes an ordeal straight out of Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman's 'Long Way Round'. If you're on a rented scooter with pillion, you have to be very careful. On two wheels the red dust is as slippery as central Australia's bulldust. I've been riding motorbikes for forty years and still found it harrowing. Be super careful. In ten years or less the roads will have improved, along with the numbers of tourists.

Dommage le site était magnifique, mais des travaux gigantesques ont démarrés qui vont défigurer le paysage. Un énorme hôtel, un parc d'attraction et un golf ! ont m^me coupé la route du front de mer. Plein d'autres construction à venir.

Насмотревшись реклам про Баунти и прочие картинки. Мы решили непременно поехать туда на целый день.... Но приехав поняли, что это было ошибочное желание. Пляж узкий, на нем присутствует мусор, ведется стройка. В конце пляжа дорогой отель с чистым пляжем, на который нас не пустили))). Проехав весь остров, увидев огромную свалку с горящим мусором, проехав по экстримальному отрезку в 15 км. (Дороги нет) Я думаю, что остров застроят дорогущими отелями, загубят до конца всю флору и фауну..... А сейчас Фукуок-это райское место для туриста ищущего покой и уединение. Никакие Муйне и Нянчанги несравнятся с ним по красоте и чистоте моря. Жаль что понял это уехав с него дальше на материк...
