Koh Rong is a group of islands just off the Cambodian coast, near Sihanoukville, which offers 23 amazing white-sand beaches bordering azure seas. It is still very much an unspoilt paradise, with 5 tiny islands in the area, 3 of which are uninhabited. Of the other 2, the main island of Koh Rong is a bit of a party island that's popular with backpackers, while Koh Rong Sanloem has a quieter and more easygoing atmosphere.

Many people visit Koh Rong and Koh Rong Sanloem for the fantastic beach experience alone. With only a few exceptions, staying on Koh Rong is very budget-friendly. There is already a pretty good range of accommodation available, from high-end private resorts to low-cost guesthouses and beach bungalows.
