The beaches on the island are pristine with white sands and emerald blue sea water. Bai Nho (Small beach) has an elegant crescent shaped beach with rock settings but not suitable for swimming because there are reefs under the surface. Vinh Trieu Duong beach is incredibly blue and clean with white sands and is the best place to swim.
Islets around Phu Quy Island
There are ten islands surrounding the main island and some of which have wonderful views like Hon Trung (Egg island), Hon Do (Red island), Hon Den (Black island) and Hon Tranh. Hon Tranh is only 15 minutes from Phy Quy port but remember that you can only visit this island if you have permission from the marine.
Linh Son pagoda – Mount Cao Cat
The Buddhism pagoda Linh Son is located on Cao Cat mountain which has a very unique shape. The mountain is on an altitude of 100m above sea level with a giant spiral boulder cliff facing the sea. On the mountain’s peak, you can take in the magnificent natural scenery of not only Phu Quy island but also other islands around.
The island’s lighthouse and wind turbines
There are three wind turbines and six generators on the island to supply power for the population and a lighthouse on Cam mountain. To reach the lighthouse, you will have to climb 120 stone steps from the foot of the mountain. The uphill panoramic views are stunning, especially in sunny days.
Linh Quang pagoda
Linh Quang pagoda is the largest pagoda on the island and the oldest pagoda surrounded by sea, with its name bearing the wish for light, enlightenment, and a bright future in which all islanders are happy and safe. Built in 18th century, until now the pagoda has been renovated several times, expanded in size, changed in structure and design, having a serene yet solemn beauty. Especially, within the pagoda’s yard, a 9-level chedi stands proudly representing for the wealthiness and affluence of the island.
