Beaches and Islands of Cambodia
Most visitors are blown away by the beauty of Cambodia's islands.
Not as famous as the islands of neighbouring Thailand, the still unspoiled beauty of Cambodia' Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem, to name only a few, is unparalleled and makes it a must visit.
Turquoise waters, white sandy beaches and a wide variety of accommodation offer the best place to simply rewind and enjoy the surrounding, tropical, beauty.
The second biggest and the most popular island in Cambodia is reached by boat transfer from Sihanoukville.
Koh Rong previously known especially for its wild backpacker crowd, evolved into a diverse island destination that caters to any taste and budget.
Taking advantage of its size, it offers travellers a full range of options.
Secluded beaches with just a few boutique resorts, to the bustling beaches one can meet up with fellow travellers for that epic sundowner, to high end five star luxury resorts such as The Royal Sands at Koh Rong' long beach.
There are many activities that round up a stay on the island, from diving, to mangrove kayaking or swimming with bioluminescent (glowing) Plankton at night.
Koh Rong is a true paradise and maybe the best ending of a memorable trip to Cambodia.
Koh Rong Samloem
Koh Rong Samloem is the little sister island of Koh Rong, reached with a 15 minutes boat transfer from Koh Rong or 45 minutes from Sihanoukville.
Koh Rong Samloem is much smaller and less developed then its bigger brother. On the main beach, Saracen Bay, a wide range of small 3* boutique Resorts and Hostels have been set up.
The long beach invites for extended walks to find this perfect spot for a well deserved, chilled coconut.
Decent restaurants offer a wide variety of seafood and other dishes. Basic but stylish bars invite for a drink at any time of the day.
It is this "Robinson Crusoe" feeling but with added comfort, that makes this island the perfect getaway.
Oh and if you want to have the real "Robinson Crusoe Thing", that is just a 30 minute walk through the jungle away. Sunset beach offers it all: Secluded, stunning beach, almost off the grid.
