THE COAST

Cambodia’s coast can be whatever you want it to be. Kep’s hillside resorts take relaxation to new levels, but Sihanoukville is the best choice for those with drinking and dancing in mind. The finest beaches can be found on islands offshore, while Kampot is arguably Cambodia’s most charming small town

Biographical Info

No trip to Kep is complete without a visit to the bustling crab shacks, a series of simple, wooden eateries that serve up Kep’s famous crab and other seafood. Jiggling crustations are pulled straight from baskets in the sea and boiled or fried with the region’s famed Kampot pepper. Holy Crab and Kimly are two of the most renowned restaurants along the stretch, but everyone has their own favourite and most can be relied upon to turn out lip-smackingly good seafood.

Discover TIP

The three main beaches in Sihanoukville are Serendipity, Otres 1 and Otres 2. The former is definitely the go-to coastal spot for partying, while Otres 2 is home to a more upmarket vibe and plenty of smart resorts. Otres 1 is somewhere in between.

Discover TIP

Kampot has become something of a foodie haven in recent years, with far more eateries than we can fit in our pages. Check out Tertúlia, Baraca and Twenty Three, to name but a few.
