Phu Quy island hidden gem in Vietnam- while you stay home

Phu Quy island: hidden gem in Vietnam

Phu Quy Island is yet another hidden gem in Vietnam, a small but very beautiful Vietnamese island that is not that hard to access because it isn’t that far from Ho Chi Minh City. But you can check how to get there in the previous post.

So, exploring Phu Quy Island on foot, like I did in Nam Du Island, is not a great idea cause the island is too big for it, so I rode my motorbike everywhere. The streets are easy and good and there is no such thing as traffic. I made the loop around the island and encountered very beautiful spots everywhere. So let’s go and find out what is there to see in Phu Quy Island:

Linh Son Pagoda

This Pagoda stands on the highest hill on the whole island and is the best viewpoint of Phu Quy Island. At the top, the view is 360º which makes us understand the topography of the island and how flat it is in general. From the very top, you can see several different beaches along the coastline with gorgeous shades of blue shining through. There are these nice rock formations too but overall, the view is worth it! So gorgeous!! It is a must. From here you can see Hon Den Beach which looks wonderful. I headed there next.

Master’s Tomb – spiritual tourist destination

This is a nice place to stop by. Not because of the temple itself, but because of these sort of fake swimming pools that have this beautiful clear green water trapped inside. Sea water of course. There were some colorful fish trapped there I’m not sure if that is the place where they grow fish. The colors were stunning and seeing the colorful fish swimming was a delight. There was no one here so I simply walked around the area, which was very windy.
Just next to it is Hon Den Beach.

Hon Den beach

This beach is easily accessible too and has no one. I didn’t see a living soul there even though the water was clear and clean. Watching it from above was what I did.

Lach Xanh Beach or Bai Tam Lach Xanh

My next stop was this place. I have been here twice. On the first time I discovered this was a huge seashell paradise, and the next time I came for the seashells haha. I had never seen such big and beautiful seashells lying on a beach like this in my life. There were so many… Jeeeez. They were surely there for a while as many were partially buried and burned too. The place looked like a seashell trash dump. There were shells everywhere, lots of the same kind in piles! The place smelled bad and very “fishy”, so I think that is where people dump “seashell trash”. For me it wasn’t trash, it was a treasure! I was ecstatic about this find. I filled my motorbike compartment with nice shells those two days haha. Yes, I left this island with kg and kg of shells. But there aren’t only shells in this spot. There are beautiful deserted beaches too and another “swimming pool” that seems to be an attraction but was empty when I visited.

Locals were hanging around here. The place seemed to have a spot to chill, with many fishing boats that give another charm to the view. I liked this spot!

But it was time to proceed and as the street is next to the sea, I stopped several times to enjoy the views, like at this spot: Sup Tour, where a lady was selling some flan with ice, and I had one of them, so yum and with a view.

Hon Tranh Cano Wharf

I proceeded with my motorbike trip, but I didn’t have a lot of plans of where to stop. If I found something along the way, I would stop, and I felt like stopping at Hon Tranh Cano Wharf or Ben Cano Hon Tranh. I’m so glad I decided to check the place out because it looks gorgeous! But this is the place where fishing boats dock or whatever because a lot was going on. I think some tours around the island might depart from here as I saw some speed boats docked and people arriving. The water is so pretty! There seem to be some sand banks but the boats are everywhere and this is not the beach where you would go for a swim. It is too busy even though it would be awesome to walk along the sand banks and enjoy the crystal clear water. People were staring at me as I’m sure they don’t see those many foreigners. They seemed to be loading the boats with salt making loud grunts while doing it haha. Beautiful here! Worth a stop.

Phu Quy Flagpole or Cot co Phu Quy

But, it was time to head to the most beautiful beach on Phu Quy Island. First I saw it from above from this flagpole. This spot is a viewpoint to this marvelous beach below. So stunning! Views from here are a must. The best in the whole island honestly. The surroundings are very green and stunning!

Bai Nho Phu Quy or Small Beaches- Rich

This is the name of the beach on Google Maps. The beach from above is gorgeous but there is a traitorous way down if you wanna bathe. So from the Flagpole, you can see this beach, but going down is through the mountain. There aren’t stairs or something, it is just a dirt trek, but very easily done. Down there the beach is not as pretty as from above, but it still looks great. There aren’t many people here before 4 pm, but after that hour, Vietnamese are not scared of the sun any longer so they go to the beach. There was a stall selling drinks and some snacks, but not much.
Guys were taking professional pictures of girls on boards floating on the water and some people were enjoying the water too. This is a nice beach to hang out, but as the sun sets on the other side of the island, it loses sunlight kinda early. The cliffs around are very green and the landscape down there is nice to look at.

Bai Hen

My following stop was Bai Hen, another spot with good ocean views and some beautiful natural swimming holes in sight. There was a small beach down there where some people were catching seafood. It is a nice spot to stop and enjoy a different view of Phu Quy Island.

Sunset Beach

My last stop of the day was on the side of the island where it is possible to watch the sunset, so I went to Cong Vien Bien Cua Huynh De area to find a spot on the sand to sit and enjoy the golden hour. I found a spot filled with dead corals and I made it my place. This area is very windy though, and for sunset time the beach was very filled with people.

And those were all the places where I have been in Phu Quy Island. The island is small, two days is more than enough to explore it fully and with a calm pace. I thought it was worth my time for its natural beauty and quiet atmosphere. If you want to visit some untraveled islands in Vietnam, Phu Quy Island is a very good option! What a good find!
