Beaches: Sihanoukville has several beaches to choose from.
S Victory Beach: Unspectacular, small, polluted from nearby port. but quiet and has some nice restaurants on the beach. 10min on foot. from the main budget guest-house area
S Independence Beach: S from Victory. If the tide is reasonably low, it is possible to walk round left (ie away from port) It is deserted except for some drinks sellers.Sand strip is narrow and some part is rocky. Chair & umbrella 1000r, tube 2000r.
Visit Independence Hotel(might be closed but). It is possible to climb onto the roof quite easily which gives good views and a better idea of how resplendent the hotel must once have been. Quite spooky now though!
S Hawaii(Sokha ?) Beach: Again within walking distance of Independence Beach, Hawaii Beach is very small, beautiful, wide, large and clean sand beach Also it is the site of occasional small full-moon parties, just a few beers & a sound system, very friendly. Water is also very clean. Chair 1000r, tube 1500r. many food/drink stalls. Water 1000r, coke 2500r
S Ochheuteal Beach: is the longest largest beach but narrow strip sand beach., and most attractive beach with a distinctive crescent-shape. It is possible to hire sun loungers & find shade under fixed parasols. Beach sellers offer drinks, fruit etc. A sprinkling of hard-working NGO's can be found here relaxing & topping up those fading tans at weekends...& weekdays too come to that!
Chair & umbrella 1000r, tube 1500r
