Guesthouses, hotels and resorts
Bai Sao Beach
One of Phu Quoc's most stunning white-sand beaches, Bai Sao has just a couple of places to stay. While the beach is beautiful, it is worth remembering that you're rather isolated here, so it's a good idea to have your own transport. To reach Bai Sao from An Thoi, when reaching the sealed intersection, continue north on the sealed road and you'll reach a rise with a dirt road running off to your right with a stack of signage -- follow that for about a kilometre to reach the beach.

Truong or Long Beach
The vast bulk of the guesthouses and hotels on Phu Quoc are located at the northern end of Long beach, a 20-plus kilometre stretch of yellow sand that runs down the length of the island. In wet season, the seas here are rough and not great for swimming, but in dry season it's a placid pool with the gentle lapping of waves lulling you to sleep. Accommodation is split into three areas. The northern part of the beach closest to Duong Dong town is where you will find the bulk of midrange to high-end accommodation. Further south are the more affordable places to stay. Even further south are future construction sites for well known hotels such as Grand Mercure, Novotel and Intercontinental.

Ong Lang Beach
Set north of Duong Dong town, Ong Lang is a sweeping bay totally deserted save for a trio of good guesthouses sitting around the cusp of its southern end. While the beach isn't as beautiful as Bai Sao, this is a good compromise for those who like a bit of company but don't like more developed Long beach. Ong Lang sees a lot of long-stay guests and it's easy to see why.
