    Just wondering if its possible to hire a kayak on one of the islands of the coast of Sihanoukville, and use it to kayak around the island and sleep in hammocks along the beach? Would you have to be 'staying' with one of the resorts on the island, or could you simply hire a kayak and do it independantly?

    If so, are there smaller, deserted islands around the main islands which can be kayaked to and stayed on? Is this legal/allowed, or does it not matter?

    Thanks for any help!

    In theory you can, but since two years all islands were leased to investors, so they might not like it if you don't stay in their guest houses. Most islands no one will even know or care if you stay there for the night. Most islands are too far off for Kayak. Along Otres beach many beach shacks allowed you to sleep on their mats for free, if you drank and ate at their place.
    Main problem will be to convince the Kayak owner. How will he know, that you bring the thing back? Can you leave about 300US deposit? If you do it start from Otres beach and head for Koh Ruh/Bamboo Island. 45 minutes no wind 3h with wind...
    You could also stay locally at houses of Cambodians along the coast. Contact me if you want to find out more about this.
