4. Dinner by the sea at Ham Ninh Fishing Village

Only 14km to the East of Phu Quoc is Ham Ninh Fishing Village where you can get the best seafood on this island. In the morning, this place is a seafood market, but when the night comes, it is a perfect site for having tasty dinners at better prices than in Duong Dong Town. You can choose to eat at a raft house on the sea or a beachfront restaurant here. The raft houses are gathering at Ham Ninh wharf.

You will buy the seafood here and they will help you to cook it with a fee of around USD 1.5/kg seafood. However, as cookers in these raft house are mostly local people who are not a professional, you only can have a very few types of simple seafood dish. If you want a more diverse culinary experience, some famous restaurants in Ham Ninh Fishing Village can satisfy you with flavorful seafood dishes, but of course, the price will be a little higher than in the raft houses.
