When you are on an island that is only 574 square kilometers, the least you can do is go exploring once you get bored of sunbathing. You can easily rent a motorbike and discover some of the most isolated parts of the island. You will come across many a deserted beach where you can go for a quick swim. There are quite a number of smaller islets around the main island of Phu Quoc. You can pay those a visit as well. Fishing has always been the main occupation of the near 85,000 people that reside on the island. As such, there are many fishing villages, like the Ham Ninh Fishing Village, on the island. The locals there are extremely friendly and tourists are welcome to visit these villages. The national park, created in 2001, that covers almost half of Phu Quoc is a marvelous opportunity to discover the mountainous slopes covered in thick foliage that is home to animals such as langurs, macaques, loris', otters, hornbills and fruit bats. If land exploration is not your cup of tea then take the plunge and go underwater. An Thoi in Phu Quoc is home to pristine reefs of both hard and soft coral. These are great spots for diving and getting a close view of Phu Quoc's aquatic life. Snorkeling is an option as well. No matter where you go on the island, you will never be too far away from perfect, white sandy beaches and turquoise water during your Phu Quoc holiday.
