The aroma of fresh fish and two large prawns being grilled on the BBQ behind me just hit my nostrils. When I arrived a few minutes ago, I hand picked the fish and two prawns, so they could grill them as I watched the sun set.
I am on Long Beach, on Phu Quoc island. I am on the south tip of the “resort area”, a nice spot where the ‘mass tourism’ resorts give way to an odd mixture of high end resorts, Vietnamese resorts, and ’boutique resorts’. I am staying at one of the ’boutique resorts’. It only has four bungalows and they face a private beach only a few steps away. You go to sleep hearing the surf almost at your door.
I decided not to eat at our restaurant, although the food is great, and opted to come here … a small, nondescript dining spot down the beach. The seafood is fresh. You simply point to what you want and have a seat. They then grill your meal on the spot as you enjoy a beverage.
And what a great spot it is tonight.
Long Beach, Phu Quoc island, Vietnam is considered by some to be one of the most beautiful beaches in the world. I have seen a few beaches. And I would have to agree with them.
Tonight, the sunset is breathtaking. The vibe of the international travelers around me is fun and happy. Everyone in the world loves a beautiful sunset.
This is a great place to enjoy a grilled seafood dinner.
