Since during the dry season the wind mainly comes from the east, the western beaches are clean and nice. Ong Lang Beach is one of the prime locations on Phu Quoc Island and harbors a plethora of quiet and peaceful beach resorts.
Ong Lang Beach is not one continuous stripe of sand, but rather a series of smaller beaches. Many resorts have chosen this area to build their facilities, halfway between Duong Dong and Ganh Dau. The beaches have yellow sand and are usually taken care of by the staff of the resorts. The waterfront is lined with poplar trees, coconut palms and the one or another rose myrtle bush.
The water is nice and usually calm, there are some jellyfish in the sea during the start of main season on Phu Quoc. The slope is continuous and rather flat.
At Ong Lang Beach you can go snorkelling, rent a kayak or get a boat to the offshore islands for scuba diving and other interesting activities. With the kayak you can, if you have the endurance for that kind of thing, go up Cua Can River into the national park. If the weather is calm you can visit Hon Mong Tay, the Fingernail Island.
If you have time, visit one of the nearby pepper farms or undertake a kart race with your friends at the nearby go-kart arena. Generally, if you like to spend your holidays in peace and tranquility and are not dependant on the nightlife possibilities of Duong Dong Town, pick a resort at Ong Lang Beach. It’s nice and calm.
