The sand is powdery and light, reminiscent of the sand found in the Caribean's. The "whitest and cleanest" strectch of sand can be found in the northern part near the Paradiso REstaurant. Far, south, the sand becomes more coarse with a yellowish hue. There is also a lot more trash in the southern part of the beach. The water surrounding the beach is calm, warm, and with a distinctive turquoise blue color. The further out you go, the darker the ocean becomes. The sand leading into the water contains no rocks and there is no sudden drop, but rather a gentle slope.

What to explore at Sao Beach?
Besides a beach bar under a roof made of palm leaves, you can also eat at an open restaurant. The beach restaurants around are slightly pricier than elsewhere due to their prominent location. We had a lime soda, which was sweet but quite good for VND 32,000. I have seen nuoc mia, sugarcane juice for “only” VND 10,000.
Usually nuoc mia is VND 5,000 - 6,000.
Renting a jet ski costs VND 450,000 for 10 minutes. You can also ride one of these giant inflatable bananas that get pulled by a motor boat or try water skiing. 10 minutes on either costs VND 700,000 . Near the cape, you see anchoring fishing boats that produce beautiful silhouettes during sunrise.
If you walk along Sao Beach southwards, you get to an unguarded area of the beach that is more private, but the trash does not get cleared frequently here. Nonetheless, it’s worth the walk, especially if the noise of the jet skis and the evening disco is getting on your nerves.
Sao Beach is particularly popular among families, because the water at the shore is shallow. No sudden drops, no dangerous rocks. Just fine, white sand. It is said that the northern end of the seven kilometer beach is cleaner and more beautiful than the southern part.
