South Coast Cambodia

Cambodia’s beautiful south coast remains undeveloped and offers some pristine beaches and islands. Sihanoukville is the country’s leading beach resort which is still untouched compared with Thailand and Vietnam’s more established destinations and offers empty white sandy beaches and unspoilt tropical islands. Accommodation options are relatively limited except for Song Saa, a refreshingly different retreat set on pair of small tropical islands which offers unique barefoot luxury in large overwater bungalows. This beautiful lodge is designed to resemble a Cambodian fishing village and works closely to support the local community and towards restoring the islands coral reefs. For the more adventurous the beaches and islands of Ream National Park can be explored from Sihanoukville and for a wonderfully romantic experience with a difference let Turquoise arrange a unique luxury camping safari for an unforgettable night. The south coast also offers a taste of the culture and history of Cambodia, especially at the atmospheric seaside town of Kep which was founded by the French in 1908. It had over 1200 luxury villas built for the French elite in the colonial era. During the years of the Khmer Rouge many were destroyed but today some have been resorted to their former glory. You can enjoy a stay at the quirky Knai Bang Chatt for a night or two to explore. Kep is also known for its delicious seafood, notably the abundant local crab and whilst the beaches are not as idyllic and those around Sihanoukville it is possible to take a local fishing boat out to some idyllic tropical islands. If you have the time and are looking for a bit of a coastal adventure then Cambodia’s coast should not be overlooked. An overland journey between Cambodia and Thailand is at its best when taking in Kep, Sihanoukville and the Ream National Park on a camping safari, then stopping for an adventure at the 4 Rivers floating ecolodge near Koh Kong and the beautiful Cardamom Mountains, before heading into Thailand.
