Jet skiing and water sports

Still new to Phu Quoc, though starting to appear are the usual variety of water sports including jet skiing, kayaking and wind sailing, with just a matter of time before water skiing takes off given the calm waters around the island during the high season. The best places to find these water sports include some of the resorts on Long Beach including Saigon Phu Quoc Resort and some Jet Skis and Kayaks are available on Bao Sao beach at My Lan Resort.

May not sound too adventurous, though when was the last time you’ve been squid fishing at night? There’s plenty of tours on offer, so head out for an evening of squid fishing and if you’re lucky you’ll have your own self caught dinner grilled on the spot.

Explore local markets

You’re in Vietnam so what could be more fun than exploring the local Duong Dong Market early in the morning, see our Local Markets section for a little more information. For a few ideas;

  • Get off the main road into some of the sheds that sell fish, there’s any amazing array of seafood for sale, or
  • Walk down to the other end of the market and visit places few tourists venture, there’s more to town than the main roads, or
  • Checkout the variety of fruit and vegetables on offer, why not try a fruit you’ve never tried before, they could better than you think.

Find your own beach

Phu Quoc island is still undeveloped for the time being and even during the high session there are still plenty of remote and empty beaches. Of course it may take a little work trying to find these beaches, pack a lunch and towel, hit the road and venture out and see what you find. We’re not giving away any secret locations, though you’re best opportunities for empty sun drenched beaches under those coconut trees will be found around the northern part of the island.
