The western beach is rather small but nice, with the wind coming in from the Gulf of Thailand. There is also a restaurant but we didn't try it. It is said to be excellent though, so if you are hungry just give it a try. If you follow the street to the East past the fishing village, you reach Chuồng Víc, an area near Ganh Dau that is home to a few nice resorts along a beautiful stretch of sandy beach.
From both beaches you can see the Cambodian islands Koh Seh and Koh Thmei a few kilometers away. The winds can get pretty nasty at the smaller beach, but Chuồng Víc is largely protected by cape Ganh Dau.
The village is one of the points of interest on Phu Quoc Island that can only be reached after a hard ride of around 40 minutes, but the wild landscape is interesting and well worth the effort. That makes the area uninteresting for beach bummers from Duong Dong.
Nguyen Trung Truc, who is revered in a temple right here is one of Vietnam's heroes of the resistance. He organized the militia and founded a guerilla base on Phu Quoc. More about spiritual points of interest in the section about temples and pagodas.
