Koh Yor Beach

Our rating:

The riverside is all very well, but if you’re craving sun, sand and sea, then you could either take a trip out to Koh Kong Island or, much more easily, hop on a moto over to Koh Yor beach on the other side of the Thai Bridge.

it’s narrow, but there’s hardly anyone there. How much beach do you need anyway?

In case the moto driver is unsure — of the beach or your pronunciation — you get there by going over the bridge, through the toll booths, and then taking a left turn at the Buddha roundabout. Stay on the road for just under six kilometres, and it eventually brings you directly to the sand.

And then there’s this...

And then there’s this…

The beach itself is not the loveliest in the world, but it is quiet, and you’ll have no problem clearing out a patch for yourself. If you want, just can rent one of the salas sheltering under the trees — we were quoted $5 for this — or stretch out on a lounger, which we were told is free.

The Crab Shack is nearby, and is famed for its soft shell crabs. You can also order drinks, beers and a good selection of Khmer dishes as well.

This is a great spot for sunsets, and if you want to explore, the nearby fishing village at Bak Khleng is fascinating.
