For the longest time, the temples of Angkor left other destinations in Cambodia in the shade, but in recent years, the beaches and islands of the South Coast have become a major attraction in their own right.
With countries such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam as close neighbors, beach lovers are spoiled for choice, but Cambodia can compete with the best of them when it comes to powdery sands, swaying palms and turquoise waters.
The islands off the coast near Sihanoukville have something for everyone, from die-hard party people to folks seeking sun-kissed solitude. All you need to do to find beach perfection in Cambodia is pick your island, select your beach, and sprawl on the sand surrounded by warm, clear waters. There’s a reason many visitors to Cambodia check in and decide to never checkout!
