I’m not really that familiar with the coastal areas of Cambodia and I’ve never been to any beaches here until I got to Sihanoukville. And I never thought that I was in for a nice surprise. There really are nice beaches in Sihanoukville.
Here are some of the beaches that I went to in Sihanoukville:
Serendipity is the area where most bars are located. It is connected to Occheuteal Beach and together, they’re considered as the longest and most popular beach in Sihanoukville. It has a nice white sand shore and clear water but on the latter part of the trip I noticed that there are floating trash getting washed ashore. I didn’t see those on my first two weeks here though. I’m not sure if it was carried here by the current from another place or what. But I do hope that they keep this beach clean.
Probably one of the most beautiful beaches in Cambodia. It has a clean white sandy shore and clear shallow water ideal for swimming.
Another beautiful white sand beach in Sihanoukville and there’s only one resort in this beach. There’s a portion which is accessible to the public. It’s also well maintain and very clean.
Only accessible by boat. Bamboo island is a very laidback island with nice clear water. The island is not fully developed but there are a few beach huts for rent and one restaurant in this island. Overnight accommodation is permitted.
There are a lot more to go to which I opted not to visit anymore so I’ll have something to look forward again when I go back to Sihanoukville.
