Vong Beach is the first part of Phu Quoc Island you see when you arrive via boat.
Vong Beach is the first thing visitors get to see if they travel to Phu Quoc Island by boat, since it's the main ferry port that connects the island with Ha Tien and Rach Gia on the mainlands of Vietnam.

From afar, the long, slightly curved beach with it's mountainous backdrop is impressive enough, but it pains me to say that Vong Beach is probably the dirtiest place in all of Phu Quoc, together with Duong Dong Beach. It's so littered that it even ended up on the news, together with many other places on the island - very much to the displeasure of environmentally conscient expats as well as young and educated Vietnamese.
Large concrete piers stretch out into the sea for hundreds of meters, so the ferries can dock. More piers are under construction in preparation for the slowly increasing numbers of tourists that visit Phu Quoc Island every year.

Further to the north of Phu Quoc Island along the coast, you will reach Ham Ninh village with it's colorful fishing fleet, seafood restaurants and nightly squid fishing tours. If you head south from Vong Beach, you eventually reach the beautiful paradise of Sao Beach.
