You can book a flight or use a speedboat from Ha Tien to get to Duong Dong town, Phu Quoc island.
Starting from the center of the town to Duong Dong – Cua Can road, about 4.5 km to the north of the island, you will see a large road leading to the beach. Do not worry that you can not find the right way as there are many signs here. Keep going for another kilometer and you will reach Ong Lang beach.
I recommend you travel by motorbike because of its convenience. It only takes you about 15 minutes to travel from Duong Dong town to Ong Lang beach by motorbike. Just give it a try!

Swimming, Diving, And Fishing
If you miss out on swimming at Ong Lang beach, you will regret it for the rest of your life! The feeling of wallowing in the cool blue water will blow a breath of air into your life without delay. Many tourists regard the blue sea in Ong Lang as the miniature Maldives in Phu Quoc. Trust me! The seawater here is so clear that you can see some colorful fish swimming around the coral reefs. How awesome!
To have a whale of a time, you can organize a diving competition with your friends to find pearls or snails. It can bring you a totally brand new experience.
How about fishing? Well, you can choose either two ways: go fishing by yourself or go fishing on boat with local fishermen. But believe me, they are all fun. Then, you can taste the seafood that you catch by yourself. The seafood here can blow you away and it becomes even greater if you can eat them fresh!
Sunset at Ong Lang beach
There are many excellent eateries on the Ong Lang beach, and you can order a barbecue on the beach. Come and enjoy the relaxing feeling of eating fresh seafood dishes under the shade of trees, watching the sea, and hearing the whispering wind.
But what if you don’t like a ready-made BBQ party? Hmm, you can organize it yourself! What you need is to buy seafood at the market and rent barbecue equipment from restaurants. As easy as one-two-three, right?
Ong Lang beach is tranquil, it is considered a promised land for kayaking. To participate in this activity, you can rent a kayak boat from a hotel or restaurant in the area.
Imagine what can be better when you enjoy the feeling of being floating on the water, amidst a vast scenery of water waves. The taste of the sea will make you never forget. However, you should also be careful because the waves will take the boat away so try to move near the shore!
It’s time to recharge the battery. There are many affordable and luxury hotels in the Ong Lang beach area, but I recommend that Phu Quoc Bambusa Resort, Coco Valley Garden Hotel and Cottage Village should be included on your list as they do offer you many perks when you stay.

Some Note Before Starting A Trip To Ong Lang Beach
Phu Quoc has many beautiful scenes and great beaches for you to explore. However, the best time to visit Phu Quoc, as well as the Ong Lang beach, is from October to May next year. Because this period has a lot of sunshine and storms rarely happen.
Also, you will participate in many outdoor activities, so don’t forget to bring sunscreen. Tanned skin is great but your vacation will be such a nightmare if you have a sunburn!
Besides, you should prepare some waterproof bags to protect your phone and camera in case they fall into the water. Prevention is better than cure, right?
Ong Lang beach will bring you brand-new experiences for sure. Unlike the crowded tourist destinations, this place offers you a great opportunity to be in harmony with nature.
Schedule a time to swim in the blue sea and watch the beautiful sunset. I believe you will have a meaningful and fun holiday here.
