Translated to Monkey Island, Koh Rong is set off the coast of Sihanoukville. This is a destination for the backpacker and beach lover as there are 43 kilometers of beautiful sandy beaches, four villages, crystal waters, and a jungle. This secret little island has the potential to provide a magical escape.
Although it is becoming more developed, Koh Rong still offers a near deserted island escape. Thanks to this, light pollution is very minimal. In turn, the sky beams with stars on clear nights, and the even the water glows with the phosphorescent plankton. Daylight adventures can be had at High Point Rope Park or at one of the many beaches. The beaches offer chances for swimming and sunbathing, but they are also the jumping off point for many activities. Of course there is snorkeling as well as a number of diving sites, but there are also opportunities for island hopping and fishing. Trekking and cycling are other popular recreational activities given the 30km of dirt trails which go through virgin beaches, a range of flora and fauna, villages, and waterfalls.
