Sihanoukville Holidays

Cambodia's premier beach destination

Easily accessible by short flight from Siem Reap or Phnom Penh, Sihanoukville is Cambodia’s main beach destination and has become increasingly popular with tourists over the last 20 years. Although still offering a fairly laidback pace of life there are a number of different beaches on offer with plenty of restaurants, beach stalls and shops to keep you entertained. Boat trips are also available to the nearby islands such as Koh Rong and Koh Ta Kiev for a slice of true castaway life. The best time to travel is between November and March when temperatures are slightly cooler than the hottest months of April-June and there is less rainfall.

Destination Highlights
  • Laidback beach life
  • Offshore Islands to explore
  • Ideal to combine with Siem Reap

Top Tips from our Experts

Destination Executive

There are actually a few different beaches in Sihanoukville called Otres, Ochheuteal, Independence and Serendipity. They all have a selection  of beach bars but Independence Beach is my favourite as it is much quieter and really relaxing.
