Things to do and events in Phu Quoc in March

Enjoy sun, sand, and sea

The best time to visit Phu Quoc is from November till April and among these months, March is the best with long sunshine hours and less rain which is amazingly ideal for experiencing the sun, sand, and sea here. As the temperature is comfortable, you can enjoy sunbathing on the beaches for a longer time and warm seawater allows you to swim more without worrying about catching a cold.

If you love a crowded atmosphere and so lazy to go further, Long Beach is right at Duong Dong Town, very near to the center area, and you can easily get there by walking. On the other hand, with the lovely weather in March, you should spend time getting to some beaches located far from the center which is stunning and quieter to enjoy your leisure time.

See starfishes in Rach Vem

March is the starfish season in Rach Vem (Phu Quoc) when you can easily see a huge number of them through crystal clear seawater. Rach Vem fishing village is located in Ganh Dau commune, about 40 km from the center of Duong Dong town, Phu Quoc. To get there, you can try walking across the primeval forest, enjoy the fresh air of the mountains and forests of Phu Quoc, or from the town center, follow Duong Dong - Bai Thom road. The village is known for its clear, blue, and cool seawater, with a pristine white sand beach and also a beautiful starfish paradise not everyone knows about.

Please note that the starfish cannot survive if it leaves the water for too long, if you hold it up to take pictures or tease it in the water, it will die in an instant. Therefore, you should leave them alone and only sit beside these lovely starfishes to take pictures with them!
