45 minutes by car or moto from down town SihanoukVille. Follow the ocean past the port and you can't miss it. Best to be back in Sihanoukville before dark, as there's no lights along the road. Also, a road from Route 4 directly to Steung Hauv from Veal Renh.
You can also take a boat from SihanoukVille for an hour or less ride, one way.
What to do?
Sightseeing, fishing, boating and seafood are about the only activities here.
a few guesthouses now, (but we could only find one, CSM Resort), no foreign food served (like burgers and pizza). Lot of small fish processing plants near the piers, you can usually peek in, or even join in. The entrance to Steung Hauv now is quite crowded with trucks and not so pretty, but if you can get by this, they're hundreds of great outdoors places to go. On the docks, rivers, mangrove forests, hills and valleys, or just stroll around the neighborhoods.
The piers are always an attraction with the boats, fisherpeople, and delicious smells of fish (uncooked, of course)
There's a boat yard with a few new boats being built, and many more being repaired or overhauled.
A new electrical power plant is being built here, as is a Special Economic Zone, so there's actually many cars and trucks around town now.
