Rach Vem Beach Phu Quoc

Rach Vem Beach (Bai Rach Vem) is a rural beach located on the northern coast of Phu Quoc and it is part of Ganh Dau commune.  The beach consists of white sand and turquoise water however this is not your typical beach as it is a “working” beach where fishermen and their families reside so do not expect to find a clean beaches or an ocean here.  Rach Vem is however beautiful in its own way.  The shore line is dotted with fishing nets and traps and has become a parking lot for the numerous fishing boats in the area. Rach Vem Beach and illage is a great place to absorb local life and it is well worth a visit, mainly for the cultural experience.

Rach Vem Village

Rach Vem Village is a small fishing village (800 meters wide and 4 km long) and this is the place to experience traditional village life as not much has changed in the past 10 years.  There are about 160 household with approximately 1,000 people living here. The village is accessible by traveling down a relatively wide red dirt side road.  The village is located between the Nhum and Coc canals and faces the sea where Cambodia can be seen in the distance.  You can expect to see very basic houses built on stilts, chickens and ducks being farmed, stray dogs and cats running around, and children following you around.  The locals do not speak English but are very friendly and helpful.  The life here is simple and there is a certain charm that exists in the village.  Unfortunately this village is destined to be redeveloped into a resort area so see it in its natural state while you can.
