A getaway island is incomplete without a few beachside bars to enjoy some draft beer or classy cocktails and seafood. Here are our favorite spots in Phu Quoc island to do just that.

If you are looking for the quintessential nightlife spot, Rory’s Beach Bar it is! This place is run by an expat duo, so you will find everything here catered to Western tastes—from the décor and music to the menu and prices. The spacious open-air lounge setting has comfortable chairs that you can relax on under colorful lanterns, as you sip a classy cocktail with a backdrop that features unbeatable views of the ocean and surrounding islets. The extensive drink menu has a diverse range of tropical cocktails, beers on tap, and imported wines, priced at 30,000 VND and up. Visit during happy hour, order a delicious grilled seafood platter, and watch the sun go down in style. During high season (November to March), expect DJs, foosball games, bonfires, and sport events. For New Years, Rory’s hosts the biggest beach party on the island.

The Rabbit Hole Irish Bar is one of the best places to end up during your night out in Phu Quoc island, or you can spend the whole day. There are plenty of activities here to keep you entertained: dart boards, pool tables, classic Nintendo games, poker, Jenga, Connect-4, and more. All of this comes with great lounge and house music, awesome comfort food and drinks, and even nitrous balloons. Go easy on those though.Thursdays are ladies nights, where ladies get buy-one-get-one-free promotions for cocktails. Happy hour happens daily from 6:00 p.m.–10.00 p.m. where cocktails are sold for 20% off. Keep an eye on their Facebook page for upcoming events.

Established in 2012, Coco Bar is your standard beach bar and has everything any self-respecting beach bar should have: an open-air setting with chairs spilling onto the pavement, fantastic views, friendly and attentive service, great grub choices, and of course, drinks. You will also find a bonus: shisha! There is a pool table for passing pool sharks to show off their skills, board games for those who have run out of things to talk about, and cute puppy dogs running about for those who love giving belly rubs. And that’s not even the best part! Coco Bar is actually known for its delicious homemade rum. We recommend the coconut rum, the passion fruit rum, and the tri-colored rum shot. If rum is not your thing, try the coconut-infused wine. You can also buy some bottles as souvenirs.

Beach Bar at Mango Bay Resort is ideal for those looking to unwind by the beach after a hard day of exploring the island, in a more private venue that is less crowded and a little more upscale. The menu is fancy; it includes gourmet tapas, premium liquor and innovative cocktails, which you can enjoy under a canopy of stars, keeping cool by the gentle sea breeze. This place is great for a date or any special occasion.

Golden Sand Bar is located in the south west coast of Phu Quoc where all the luxury resorts can be found. It’s rather new, having opened in the beginning of 2017, but within a short time has made its way up the list of good bars in the island. You will get to spend some quality time here; there are hammocks and swings overlooking the beach, board games, outdoor seating to enjoy a nice meal, and a fantastic menu. Golden Sand Bar also offers jetski rentals. A few meters walk from here, you will find beautiful art installed in the ocean.Your beach day will be perfect here. Think of this bar as a resort bar but without the resort.
