There are some activities you can do when visit Phu Quoc island.

An Thoi islands and Hon Thom fishing village
Just 30 minutes off the southern tip of Phu Quoc, the 15 islands of An Thoi abound with scenic beaches, azure waters and colourful coral reefs. Several of the islands are uninhabited, whilst on others a host of leisure activities await, including swimming, snorkeling and fishing. A visit to the fishing village of Hon Thom is a must. You’ll be able to meet the friendly locals as they go about their daily routines and get a feel for authentic Phu Quoc rural life.

Night Market
The island’s main town – Duong Dong – is home to a vibrant night market where you can enjoy street food-style freshly caught local seafood and fish, as well as shop for island souvenirs, handicrafts and gifts. Duong Dong is just a short drive from the resort, so it’s very easy to pop to the night market for a few hours any evening.

Phu Quoc national park
Established in 1986 and upgraded to a national park in 2001, Phu Quoc National Park, with its diverse flora and fauna, covers most of the north of the island. The park has an abundance of woodland, mangroves and forests, not to mention over 20 different species of orchid. Over 200 animal species have been recorded in the park, including flying squirrels and sloth-monkeys. Trekking through the park is a wonderful way to engage with the natural world in Phu Quoc.

On an isolated stretch of Long Beach, Phu Quoc Pearl Farm is an essential stop if you’re shopping for pearls. The small farm shop sells pearl necklaces and earrings as well as providing information on the oyster and pearl industry.

Cau temple
One of the many attractions in Phu Quoc is Dinh Cau Rock, or Cau Temple, which is both a temple and a lighthouse. Built in 1937, it is dedicated to Thien Hau and provides protection for the fishermen and vessels that head out into the open waters every day. The temple is a great lookout point for the stunning Phu Quoc sunsets and for watching the fishing boats return to the harbour.

White sandy beaches
As befits an island paradise in South East Asia, Phu Quoc is home to idyllic secluded white-sandy beaches. The most spectacular beaches are along the western coast and southern tip of the island. However, probably one of the most beautiful beaches on the Island is on the southeastern coast – Sao beach. It’s a great destination for lunch when taking a day out and exploring the island.
