Cambodia's most popular seaside destination is Sihanoukville, a bustling port town with lovely beaches and easy access to a number of delightful, unspoilt islands that offer great opportunities for day trips, snorkelling and diving.
“If a fun and lively beach break is your style, then Sihanoukville is the place for you!”
Enfys Maloney, Team Leader
The southern town of Sihanoukville is Cambodia's premier beach destination. Built as a major trading port in the mid 1960's the town has recently boomed and offers a huge range of accommodation from the basic to the beautiful. The beach-side part of town is a lively jumble of restaurants, accommodation and bars, but a more tranquil side can still be found on the quiet stretches of beach a short walk or tuk tuk ride out of town. Sihanoukville's three palm-lined beaches are blessed with white sand, and lined with popular bars and restaurants.
