It's on one of the islets off the south coast -- snorkelling boat trips go there -- not sure about any accommodation.

Here's a video of it -- looks good!

wow i nearly creamed my pants when i saw the video. decided to do some research on it myself. its called Finger Nail Island, the Vietnamese call it "Hon Mong Tay". It is located north of Phu Quoc Island and 1km from the mainland. There are NO accommodations on the islet. Boats organized in Phu Quoc can take you there. I cant wait to see it for myself, hope this helps

hmm...a Phu Quoc tour guide told me it was north..? but google map is never wrong!! i guess ill have to inquire about it again, but south of Phu Quoc does sound more concrete
