Sao Beach (Bai Sao) is about 28 km from Dong Duong town, considered as the most famous beach in Phu Quoc tourist area. The reason behind its name "Sao Beach" is because here in the past, every night when the sunset fell, there were thousands of starfish in the white sand. They moved on the shore as well as underwater. So the people here took the name Sao Beach – Starfish Beach to name it as a special symbol of this island.
