White sand, clear turquoise water, friendly people and sunshine – Koh Rong is paradise!

Check out the below snaps that are sure to make you want to hop on the next flight to Cambodia.

    We visited Koh Rong in December. I want to go back as soon as I can. So beautiful and I loved that it was really easy to disconnect. Beautiful images.

    Gemma this is paradise!
    What is the best way to get there? By boat or plane?

    And it does look like there aren’t many tourists around, so this is definitely the place to go! When is the best time to visit?

      Hi Telma,

      There is no airport on the island. It’s really quite rustic, but that’s the beauty of it.

      You need to take a speedboat from Sihanoukville. It takes 45 mins and you will be at the main beach (you can go to both Koh Rong and Koh Rong Samloem).

      Best time to visit will be in high season, there will be more people but the weather will be great. It can be difficult in low season because the boats don’t run if the sea is too rough.

      Hope you get to visit this paradise soon, before it gets overdeveloped!

    Wow it looks beautiful. Was already thinking I needed to go here but those photos definitely have me convinced. Reminds me of Arno Atoll in the Marshall Islands.

    This place looks amazing. Cambodia is definitely on my list to visit. How is the infrascructure on the island? Is it easy to get around?

      Hi Mate,

      Mostly you need to take boats from each beach to another, there aren’t really roads inland. However, it is really easy to go where you want!
      I would definitely recommend visiting when you make it to Cambodia 🙂

    I’ve never visited… But you’re right your pictures make me wanna go there!! the beach & the water look so perfect! 🙂

    This place is so spectacular, Gemma! I would really want to visit Rong!

      I definitely recommend it! Much, much quieter than some of the more well known islands in SE Asia.
