Thom Beach

Phu Quoc Island

The road from Dai Beach to Thom Beach via Ganh Dau is very beautiful, passing through dense forest with tantalising glimpses of the coast below. Thom Beach, located on the northeast tip of the island, is pretty scruffy in places, but there are a couple of guesthouses that serve fresh seafood for lunch if you're touring the island on two wheels.
