Holidays in Cambodia are filled with magnificent possibilities, from exploring the temples of Siem Reap to cruise holidays on the Mekong River. For those who are keen to relax, a visit to one of Cambodia’s exquisite beaches is a must. Blessed with soft, white sand and pristine ocean views, Cambodia’s shoreline offers beautiful luxury and stunning beachside living for all.

Sihanoukville Beaches

Located on the Bay of Thailand, about halfway between Thailand and Vietnam and 4 hours from Phnom Penh, the area of Sihanoukville is the most popular of beach Cambodia’s beach communities. Those on holidays in Cambodia will often head to Sihanoukville for a refreshing beach experience.

  • Sokha Beach is known as the most glamourous, with white sand stretching into lovely blue waters. Swimming and snorkelling are popular here and relaxation is guaranteed, since the beach is hawker free. The beach itself is 80% privately owned by the adjacent hotel; however, travellers staying elsewhere can purchase a guest pass to gain access to the private area.

  • If you want to liven up your holiday in Cambodia, Serendipity Beach is where all the action is. With many restaurants, cafes, clubs and bars lining the sandy shores, people flock tend to here for beach parties and fun in the sun.  

  • At the opposite end of the scale, Otres Beach is an unspoilt heaven. A small and pristine beach tucked away from civilisation, Otres allows you to explore the tranquil waters, relax on the immaculate sand and tuck into seafood and drinks at one of the local beach bars.

Koh Rong

The second largest island in Cambodia, Koh Rong is an island paradise situated 25 km off the Sihanoukville coast, or 2.5 hours by boat. With only seven sets of bungalows and guesthouses, it has a distinct “remote island” feel. On the island, Lazy Beach, with its golden sand and fringing pine trees, is particularly stunning. If diving and snorkelling are what you crave during your holidays in Cambodia, the waters of Lazy Beach are bursting with marine life. For an unforgettable experience, make sure you stick around until after the incredible sunset for evening dip in the waters, where you can swim with the bio-luminescent plankton that glow eerily in the moonlight.

Koh Thmei Beach, Ream National Park

Mostly uninhabited, Ream National Park is an unspoilt paradise that is a must-see on holidays in Cambodia. The national park is home to some of Cambodia’s best beaches, including Koh Thmei Beach. Just 45 mins from Sihanoukville, beach lovers will find 150 different species of birds, large schools of dolphins and amazing coral reef filled with fish.
