About Koh Rong Samloem
Koh Rong Samloem is located a short distance to the south of Koh Rong. Koh Rong Samloem, also known as Koh Rong Sanloem, is smaller than Koh Rong. Koh Rong Samloem also has less nightlife than Koh Rong and tends to attract visitors seeking a more peaceful laid back beach holiday. There are three main places to stay on Koh Rong Samloem: M’Pai Bay, Saracen Bay and Sunset Beach. M’Pai Bay is the liveliest of these three destinations and it is where the island’s younger visitors tend to prefer to stay. Saracen Bay has a 3 km long beach and the best accommodation on the island. Sunset Beach is the quietest of the three.
In terms of things to do on Koh Rong Samloem, there isn’t much apart from enjoying the beach and the sea. The sea around the island is great for snorkelling and popular with divers wanting to catch a glimpse of seahorses. The island’s only road, built by the French colonialists, is in a poor state of repair and the only ways to get around Koh Rong Samloem, which is 9 km long and 4 km at its widest, are on foot or by water taxi. The one non-beach or sea activity on the island that we recommend is the walk to the light house on the south of the island, which is the best viewpoint on Koh Rong Samloem.
