3.8/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web
At Kep Crab Market, nestled right up against the seashore, the fishermen come to sell fresh crabs caught using wooden traps. Most of the action takes place on the beach overlooking the ocean full of small boats, while small improvised shacks in the background sell local meals, vegetables, fruits, and spices. Adjacent to the market, find an array of wooden restaurants on stilts. Enjoy fresh seafood, including snapper, tuna, river fish, calamari, and the famous blue pepper crab. As well as local specialties, many of the restaurants also serve international cuisine. Finish off the day with a glass of wine and a view of the sun setting over the endless horizon.

  • The food was good, but the whole market is a bit run down... I expected more. Once you reach the seafront, you'll see many restaurants, all offering pretty much the same. Why they throw all the garbage in the see I can't understand. It's 3 stars because of the abnormal amount of plastic waste in the water.
  • Such a cool place with seafood everywhere. You can buy crabs and prawns fresh and just walk down the pier to have them steamed. Add some rice to round things off and you'll have any amazing stop here !
  • Bay market, with fresh seafood. the local environment nice for holiday and enjoy fresh seafood in tropical region.
  • Fresh crabs, what's not to like? Go straight to the water to see the end to end crab process (and choose your own if you're game).
  • Loved it. Got to pick your own crabs, squid, fish and have it grilled right there.
