Kep Beach, Kep

#2 of 11 in Outdoors in Kep
Walk along the clear shallow waters and white sands of Kep Beach, a small beach only 1 km (0.6 mi) long surrounded by green forest. Local fruit and seafood markets line the shore, and remain infamous in this area-- Kep is well known for its crab markets-- so don't miss the chance to try Kep's blue crab. After relaxing on the beach, head to the various monuments found in the local vicinity. Despite the popularity of the beach with locals-- especially at the weekends-- take care when swimming here as many do not recommend it due to the impurities in the water which can make you sick. Try to avoid national holidays due to heavy crowds. Rentable chairs, ATM machines, and shower/hygiene facilities can all be found nearby.

  • Kep beach is a pretty beach but it's on a very busy road so not ideal to sit on. Very sandy and looked quite clean.  more »
  • I like walking over there, It is so fresh to get the fresh air while walking along the beach in the evening, especially to see the sunset view.  more »
  • This is a nice beach but it's directly on the busy road so I felt quite self conscious sunbathing there as the many local who enjoy the beach generally don't wear bikinis/trunk, which of course is the...  more »

  • Nice beach. Not overcrowded & water is calm and very warm & shallow. A bit of a lack of shade, but the drinks from the vendors are not inflated prices, so a good experience all round.
  • After going to Kep many times I can say beach is usually quite clean EXCEPT during the local public holidays when droves of locals with little regard for their environment litter everywhere. The water is considered very clean due to stringent government policy and monitored regularly. However the dark sand/stone sea floor makes the water look murky after the rain or during windy days, that doesn't mean it's dirty. There are cleaning teams from the government that maintain the beach in good condition but when they are needed the most (public holidays) they don't work. The water level increases very gently and there are no strong currents making it a good beach for inexperienced swimmers or kids.
  • I thought it would be a more beautiful beach, it is really nothing special and quite dirty. We were there on a Sunday afternoon and there was a lot of people there, mostly locals enjoying the water and playing games on the sand.
  • Lovely a bit windy at this time of year
  • The beauty of sunset at Kep beach. Kep City municipality is 336 square kilometres big. It's located in the South of the country and is bordering to the North, East and West with Kampot and to the South with the Gulf of Thailand. The province has not so much typical plain wet area like other provinces of Cambodia, as there are some foothills from the Elephant Mountains coming from Kampot province
