7 Most Beautiful Beaches in Cambodia

SKIP AHEAD

Cambodia impresses tourists with its rich cultural history and ancient ruins everywhere. However, this country, surrounded by the Gulf of Thailand, boasts hundreds of miles of coastline, turquoise sea-covered beaches, and unspoiled tropical islands.

Whether you’re planning a honeymoon or a family trip to Cambodia, don’t miss out on at least one stunning beach. Here is our selection of Cambodia’s most beautiful beaches for your planning inspiration.

1. Otres Beach

Located in a remote area of Sihanoukville City, Otres Beach is an ideal place to escape the hustle and bustle. Not as crowded as other beaches in the area, this beach offers a quieter, more relaxed atmosphere for visitors. Otres Beach is divided into two areas – Otres 1 & Otres 2, separated by a resort area. Otres 1 is usually more popular, where you can enjoy crystal clear waters, as well as water activities including kayaking and windsurfing. The edge of the beach is lined with huts selling food and drinks, and cheap places to rest. If you happen to visit on a Saturday night, don’t miss the Otres Market, where you will sample a variety of snacks and watch live music.

2. Sok San Beach

Situated on the west coast of Koh Rong Island, Sok San Beach, also known as 7km Beach, is the island’s best resort. True to its name, the beach stretches for 7km and is dotted with fine, powdery sand. Sok San Beach provided the setting for the reality TV show “Survivor”. Despite its fame, it has always been a beautiful but uncrowded beach. Through the translucent emerald water, visitors can see schools of fish swimming off the shore. It is a great experience to enjoy the underwater coral reefs and tropical fish by boat. Also, if you are a snorkeling lover, don’t miss Sok San Beach.

3. Lazy Beach

Lazy Beach can be reached by boat on Koh Rong Samloem, another island off the coast of Sihanoukville. The beach has been praised as the top 1 beautiful beach in the world by National Geographic for its soft, pale golden sand, and crystal clear waters. Half surrounded by a jungle, Lazy Beach is a tropical hideaway perfect for families. The calm seas here offer visitors safe swimming and fantastic snorkeling. Lazy Beach features a bar where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the sunset over the sea, with delicious refreshments.

4. Kep Beach

Kep, once a beach resort during the French colonial period, is now one of the most popular beaches in Cambodia. Kep Beach was completely refurbished in 2013 when a large amount of sand was brought in from other areas to create a comfortable public recreational beach. Visitors can rent rafts, surfboards, parasols, and beach lounge chairs at Kep Beach, as well as enjoy a variety of seafood snacks and handmade drinks.

5. Serendipity Beach

Serendipity Beach is the largest beach area in Sihanoukville, including another beach called Ochheuteal. Visitors to this beach will find a bustling ferry terminal and many amenities such as bars, restaurants, cafes, hotels, and even a golf course. Serendipity Beach has plenty of rocks and is not suitable for novice swimmers. But it’s an ideal destination for backpackers to spend a lazy weekend. As night falls, the area becomes extremely lively, offering visitors a chance to catch a glimpse of Cambodia’s nightlife.

6. Coral Beach

Koh Ta Kiev, where Coral Beach is located, is a largely untouched holiday paradise where everything remains fairly pristine. Coral Beach, one of the island’s most beautiful beaches, offers accommodation, food, and tropical drinks, making it a perfect place to release stress and relax. Visitors can rent a hammock to enjoy leisurely time or do some adventurous activities including snorkeling, cliff diving, and spearfishing.

7. Saracen Bay

Once a peaceful fishing village on Koh Rong Samloem, the crescent-shaped Saracen Bay is one of the most beautiful beaches in Cambodia, quite popular with young tourists and couples. Take a walk along the 2.5 km long beach and enjoy the incredible sunrise, the blue-green water, and the lush green hills nearby. The glowing plankton is a great view at night. You can take a boat ride to a place where there is very little light pollution to witness this spectacular view.
