The stunning twin islands of Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem located just 15Km off the coast of Sihanoukville Cambodia are an untouched paradise just waiting to be explored. Surrounded by pristine, crystal clear water and covered with lush, verdant jungles they have recently popped up on the must-see list of visitors coming to the South East Asian Region.
Spend your days lazing away on one of the numerous fine white sand beaches sipping on a refreshing mojito before diving into the emerald green waters to cool yourself off. Or better yet, enjoy an ocean front traditional Cambodian massage while listening to the tranquil sounds of the waves gently lapping the shore. If you’re the adventuresome type that prefers to keep busy, not to worry. Numerous activities such as zip-lining, snorkeling, diving, kayaking, fishing, bird-watching, and jungle trekking are on waiting for you to enjoy on the stunning island of Koh Rong.
Despite its remote location and relatively untouched vibe, late-night party animals won’t be disappointed either as the island plays host to a regular full moon party on Tui Beach. Regular fire dance shows and outdoor events with booming electronic music are scheduled for tourists visiting the island between full moon parties.
Koh Rong is easily accessed by a two-hour slow boat which includes lunch and stops for some snorkeling at a colorful, fish-filled reef just offshore of one of the many smaller islands dotting the Cambodian coast. If you’re in a hurry to get your island vacation started, just take the 45 minute speed boat and let the good times roll.
The island paradise of Koh Rong has something for everyone and every visitor will shed a tear when it comes time to leave this secret Garden of Eden behind.
