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

For most visitors, Kampot is all about one thing: doing very little. But for the more intrepid explorer, adventures abound. A 15-minute motorbike ride or a 40-minute jaunt on a hired bicycle over a bridge and along the road following the river upstream will bring you to Tada waterfall. Enveloped in untamed jungle, an off-road dirt track deposits you at a staircase leading to the tranquil waterfall, the dazzling brightness of its red-clay appearance thrown into sharp relief by the plush green foliage that make up the valley’s walls. The view is magnificent; the atmosphere serene.

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.

RESTAURANT

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.
