Western side, Koh Rong Samloem
The west of the island has bungalow resorts on two golden sand beaches, with beautiful sunset views. The limited choice of accommodation makes this a peaceful option, requiring a jungle walk if you want to get to the white sands of Saracen Bay.

M'Pai Bei, Koh Rong Samloem
The northern tip of Koh Rong Samloem features a baby island (Koh Gon), a fishing village called M'Pai Bei (meaning 23 in Khmer) and a few places to stay. Proximity to the neighbours is perhaps one of its greatest attributes as you can easily get a window into rural village life in Cambodia by strolling around and sampling some of the local fare. Next to the working fishing beach, Long Beach is perfect for swimming or relaxing in the shade of pine trees.

Saracen Bay, Koh Rong Samloem
A blindingly white bay of shallow warm sea to the east of the island, it's easy to see why Saracen Bay is the rising star of Koh Rong Samloem. With five resorts and more to follow, there's still plenty of room on the beach to find the perfect spot to settle in for the day. Beautiful sunsets reward early risers, and monthly full moon parties serve night owls. If you want to go exploring, jungle footpaths lead to western beaches and the southern lighthouse.
