Here's a Few

Some of these SihanoukVille beaches are crowded with beach chairs, umbrellas, bars, and people.  Some are just filled with sand.  A few beaches are rocky, and nice to look at, but not for swimming, and several are now construction sites or fenced off for future construction.  From most Cambodia beaches, you can take trips to the islands, and rent boats for snorkeling and fishing.

Ocheteaul Beach on the East side of town, about a 5 minute ride from downtown. This beach runs about 3 kilometers from Serendipity Beach to Otres Beach. Ocheteaul is filled with beach stands and chairs.  Seafood, burgers, pizza, and booze.  Most places serve Khmer style food, but most offer Western dishes.  Across the street from the beach, there's an assortment of restaurants and hotels. Central Ocheteaul, going towards Otres Beach, is an unoccupied 1 kilometer of beach, behind the "golf course" which never was. Lots of shade trees here, and you can bring your own food and eat on the beach.  This is also your walking path to South Ocheteaul and Otres Beaches.  South Ocheteaul is a 200 meter stretch of beach ending in a rocky point, river and bridge.  a few hotels here, beach restaurants, and mostly quiet and beautiful. You can walk here from the other Ocheteaul Beaches.  Also, you can go on the road, around the "golf course" (and now, by motorcycle right on the beach road) to this beach.  You can walk across the bridge, and you're at Otres Beach.  Voila.

Serendipity Beach The tourist beach on the East Side of town. Actually the last 200 meters of Ocheteaul beach towards Sokha Beach.  No beach stands here, just Western style bars, hotels and restaurants.  One of the few places with rooms right on the beach (or hillside).  Swimming's not great here, but the scenery on the beach is.  Very quiet daytime, but can be very noisy at night.  Many new souvenir shops, clothing, MP3 downloads, tour services and boat departures to the islands.  Serendipity has turned into the shopping section of town.

You'll find the main tourist pier for trips to the islands here.  Also, Serendipity Beach Road, from the pier 400 meters to the Golden Lions Circle, has over 60 guesthouse/hotels, and over 80 restaurants (covering about 20 different nationalities).  Rooms here are from $5 a night to $400+.

Victory Beach At the bottom of "The Hill", near the port, Victory beach has quickly become the tourist beach on the West side of town.  Unfortunately, this is mostly "private beach" now or under construction, so not very popular.  An easy walk from Victory Hill, with plenty of seafood, guesthouses, and a full service casino or (maybe 9 now).  Some quiet beach in the middle, and some restaurants towards the port. Also, featuring a pier for island boat trips.

Island Beaches Opening up quickly, but still (mostly) pristine, the islands offer some very beautiful beaches.  Day trips to the islands let you experience a few of these.  Many have basic bungalows (and some really nice ones too) on the island beaches.  Most bungalows on the islands cost $10 to $40 per night.  One island features $5,000 rooms per night.  Check out for more info.

Independence Beach A kilometer or two of nothing but beach. (now some major construction projects on the beach.)   A Small collection of beach restaurants in the middle, and a private beach at the Independence Hotel complex at one end, and at the Holiday Palace Casino at the other.  One of the quietest beaches.

Sokha Beach Sokha beach is a private beach, 1.5 kilometers long, for the guest of the Sokha Resort hotel.  Well groomed beaches, not too many people, and for a fee (if you're not a hotel guest), a beautiful swimming pool, fitness center, and lobby lounge.  At the near end of Sokha are a few hillside and cliff side bungalows and a small public swimming area.

Hawaii Beach Hawaii beach is one of the quietest beaches.  With views of the bridge to Snake Island, and the island itself, it's covered with pine trees.   The Marina (Emario Resort?) is still there with a casino, seaside swimming pool, karaoke, a few shops, Chinese restaurants, and lots of townhouses.

Otres Beach Outside of town, Otres is the fastest growing beach in town.  Several dozen beach stands and fine dining are here. .   Also, sailboat and kayak rentals and windsurfing here.  Many hotels and guesthouses with rooms from $7 to $250. Otres is divided up into 4 beaches now.  "Near O" or Otres 1 is about 400 meters of beach, starting at the mouth of a river, with lots of rooms and beach restaurants.  Long Beach is a Kilometer stretch of only beach with some pine trees lining the beach.  "Far O" Otres or Otres 2 is a few hundred meters of beach with some backpacker and also high end hotels, which ends at the mouth of a river.  Otres 3 ("Secret Beach"), is a bit further out.  While just past the end of "Far O" Otres, you need to take a 10 minute ride through Otres Village, across a bridge, and back to the beach.

Other Cambodia Beaches in SihanoukVillePast the port, is Hun Sen Beach along the road to Steung Hauv.  Not normally a tourist beach, but worth a ride out.  You can check out the fishing piers along the way.

There's also a beautiful beach at Ream National Park, about a half hour drive outside of town.  Not a great swimming beach, but great scenery and lots of seafood.

Steung Hauv fishing village is a great day trip, but no swimming beaches. A half hour by road from downtown.
