Koh Rong – Untouched beach!!!

Koh Rong is considered to be a paradise island, a most attractive destination for travelers to Cambodia. For those who are really looking for a peaceful and leisurely vacation to rest back from all stress and away from the dust, Koh Rong is an extremely ideal option. This Koh Rong will get you recovered by its pristine white sandy beaches, warm crystal-clear ocean waters, hot tropical climate and beautiful quiet beaches.

Where is Koh Rong?

Located in the Gulf of Thailand and about 25 km from the coast of Sihanoukville, there is an island named Koh Rong, or known as “paradise island” of Cambodia.

Koh Rong is the second largest island in Cambodia (after Koh Kong) with more than 78 square kilometers, 43 kilometers of coastline and more than 23 beautiful beaches.

The island is made of beaches with different coloration of sand – from (mainly) white to beige and to rose-colored along wild appealing coastline. Bays of Koh Rong with protruding capes and impressive sandstone rock formations make an add-up to the island’s scenic panorama as well. The southern coastline facing to the sea is particularly spectacular with weather and the atmosphere, while the eastern coast heading to the land is characterized by a sequence of smooth hills, gently sloping towards the numerous crescent-shaped beaches, inlets and bays. Several small islets and many reefs provide an abundance of natural environments for a great variety of marine life. The center of the island is a flat “belt” of sediments that joins the two hilly massifs of the south-east and north-west. All of these make Koh Rong so picturesque!
