Phu Quoc Island is small, but there are so many things to see that it will take you a while to get through all of them.

The many attractions of Vietnam's Pearl Island

Of course you can stay at one of the beautiful beach resorts on Phu Quoc Island for your entire vacation, but seriously, you should go out and check some of the attractions and sights, that Phu Quoc Island has to offer.

Phu Quoc Nature

Since around 70% of the land area of Phu Quoc Island, as well as parts of the surrounding sea are protected national park area, nature is one of the primary sights on the Island. Most of the national park zone is off-limits, but at certain points you can try to get a glimpse of rare species that are unique to Vietnam.

Other than that, Phu Quoc Island has a variety of beautiful beaches that range from the busy Long Beach north and south of Duong Dong, the white-sanded Sao Beach and the South East, to the tranquil and hidden beaches nestled in the North West.

You can walk through the forest and admire the leafy green of the jungle near Ganh Dau or visit the picturesque Fairy Stream.
