Kep Beach, Kep

2.8
#2 of 9 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 »

  • Nice little beach. Too many people on weekends and public holidays. Really tough to keep the place clean. Mid April sun scorches here. Sat with my smartphone for company under the shade for a fee. Don't forget to bring money. The locals seem to love it here. My buddies went for a dip leaving me here as lookout. Pretty relaxing to just sit here and look out towards the sea and tge nearby islands. Didn't expect much. Got a bit more than that.
  • Really nice little beach. Quiet and relaxing. Clean and fresh air and water. Really nice party if the country. I hope to return again soon 👍
  • Nice Place, could be cleaner in some areas. Why there are no monkey safe dustbins? Why can't the locals dispose their leftover properly?
  • Beautiful Beach, Looks Like The French Riviera. Very few people around here, tourism is low except on the weekend than you get crowds from Phnom Penh. You can rent mats, umbrellas and get food all around. The water of the ocean is warm and reasonable clean. At stormy days the ocean can turn into a while Beast, be aware for the danger. Beautiful sunsets...here you can dream about living the dream.
  • It's a popular beach with locals. There are cleaner areas but this end is a disaster.
