About Travel to Kep

Kep is Cambodia’s smallest Province which offers visitors a beach, some islands and a National Park. Kep is far less popular and less busy than the better known beach resort town of Sihanoukville, and for those travellers who do visit it is the lack of development which makes the place worth visiting.

Kep was once a thriving beach resort frequently by the French when they were a colonial power in the region and by the elite of Cambodia in the 1960s after they gained independence and before the bleak period when the Khmer Rouge took control of Cambodia. The remnants of this former era can be found scattered around Kep in the form of abandoned holiday villas which have stripped of everything valuable by local residents who correctly assumed that the former owners would never return.

Kep Beach
Kep Beach

The principle attractions in Kep are:

  • Kep beach: A 1 km crescent of white sand lined with food vendors and dining areas.
  • Crab market: This a row of wooden shacks located on the coast to the north west of Kep beach. They have restaurants here and well as market stalls selling crab and other seafood. The restaurants are not cheap but they are considered the best place in Cambodia to eat seafood.
  • Kep National Park: 66.64 square kilometre park which costs $2 dollars to enter. there is a popular 8 km circular trail which most visitors choose to take.
  • Rabbit Island: Koh Tonsay, also known as Rabbit Island,is a small island off Kep peninsula which is popular with day trippers. It takes about 25 minutes to get there in a local boat. The island has a beach, some restaurants and a few resorts but not much else. This is an ‘old school’ beach destination and perhaps the most idyllic in Cambodia.
  • Phnom Sar Sear: 14 km from Kep town this Phnom Sar Sear is a small nature reserve with three hills and some caves. On the top of the highest hill is a small temple. This attraction is popular for its views and local Buddhist also come here to pray.
