Cambodia's South Coast

Visit Cambodia's South Coast

Introduction

Along Cambodia's south coast, rainforests stretch down to the sea, meeting mangroves and coral reefs.

In between, at places such as Sihanoukville, Kep and Kampot, lie white sand beaches, fringed by lively beach bars, while out to sea tranquil islands like Koh Tonsay provide the chance for memorable daytrips to isolated snorkelling spots or an opportunity to see locals harvesting seaweed and coconuts, or fishing among the clear coastal waters.

Turtles, sharks and dugongs are among the marine life found here, while the inland mountains are home to bears, tigers, elephants and plentiful bird species.

The coastal region stretches from the Thai border to the Mekong Delta and exudes an altogether different feel, both in terms of terrain and tempo to the rest of Cambodia, making it a popular extension to tours of Angkor and other inland attractions.

This wildlife-rich region of deep jungle and pretty waterfalls is located close to the Thai border, away from the well-travelled tourist routes.

Kampot

The compact town of Kampot, on the Kampot River, has a sultry, unhurried air, and faded French colonial buildings with balconies and terracotta tiles; fishermen can be seen casting their nets from the delightful riverside promenade, as the gentle chatter of people enjoying sunset drinks sounds out.

Kep

The quiet old town of Kep, which was once the resort of choice for Indochina colonialists, when it was known as Kep-sur-Mer, is the place to try peppered crab; the crabs are cooked up with pepper from nearby farms and are best eaten on the beach where you can wash them down with local tik tanaout j…

Sihanoukville

Among palm trees and casuarinas, a jumble of ramshackle buildings and smart hotels identifies Cambodia's best-known and most-developed beach resort, Sihanoukville.
