Route tips

Road work on the island is ongoing and while most routes are accessible by all vehicles, access through some areas is only possible by motorbike. Please read the following travelling tips before setting out on your Phu Quoc Island journey;

  • Motorbikes provide the best access across all routes on Phu Quoc Island, however busy dirt roads that are yet to be sealed can get quite dusty, due to the increasing number of cars and trucks on the island. This is particularly the case on the roads leading from Duong Dong, like the road along Long beach south of Duong Dong Town, and the road to Ong Lang Beach heading north, so we recommend buying a mask in town before heading off on your adventure.

  • Some routes that approach the more secluded beaches, particularly in the north around Bai Thom, are far easier to access with 4WD vehicles and by motorbike. Take care in the monsoon season, when dirt roads can get quite muddy.

  • Travelling through Cua Can Village is only possible on motorbike as the northern section of the village has numerous meter wide wooden bridges connected to the northbound road. Great place to explore on your way to beautiful secluded beaches in the north of Phu Quoc.

  • Reaching Vung Bau and Bai Dai beaches by road is possible, though avoid Cua Can village (see note above). From Duong Dong town, take the road to Bai Thom and Ganh Dau and turn off after approximately 20kms along a new road that is currently under construction. The 26km distance from Duong Dong to Bai Dai is by motorbike only, and the vehicle distance would be approximately 35kms, to lack of vehicle access through Cua Can village.

  • An Thoi Town in the south can be reached a number of ways, the dirt road from Duong Dong currently follows the coast and is slightly shorter in distance than the sealed inland road. However while the coast road to An Thoi is far more scenic, it will take longer to travel than the sealed inland road.
