Cambodia’s southern coast is a dream; just as beautiful as its Thai neighbours but with far fewer tourists. Well-loved Kep was the country’s first beach resort, and Sihanoukville allures with exquisite beaches. For untouched luxury, the island of Song Saa is hard to beat.
Miles of empty white beaches, turquoise waters and gorgeous islands make Cambodia’s southern coast a real treat, perfect for recharging after a temple-hopping tour. Sihanoukville is the country’s largest coastal town, and despite its popularity it remains a peaceful spot to unwind by the sea. In addition sunbathing on sun-baked beaches, visitors can enjoy fishing trips and scuba diving in the warm waters of the Gulf of Thailand.
Although largely destroyed during the Khmer Rouge regime, travellers are slowly rediscovering Kep’s tranquil charm. The town was originally known as ‘Kep-sur-Mer’, and was a popular holiday haven for the French elite in days gone by. Today you can kick back on pretty beaches, enjoy delicious seafood and go on day-trips to the nearby Koh Tonsay Island.
If you’re searching for something a little more secluded, look no further than the dazzling Koh Rong archipelago and specifically the remote and unspoilt Song Saa Island. Lined by powder-soft sands, carpeted in lush rainforest and surrounded by shimmering seas – this is tropical relaxation at its finest.
