Koh Tonsay (Rabbit Island), Kep

3.6
#2 of 7 in Parks in Kep
Swing in a hammock under a palm tree shade in Koh Tonsay (Rabbit Island), a tiny rustic 2 sq km (0.77 sq mi) island lying only 4 km (2 mi) off Kep. Its sandy, rock-studded stretches make a popular low-budget getaway, refreshingly free of electricity and motor vehicles. Come here for some peaceful swimming, or explore the excellent snorkeling and diving opportunities among the many coral reefs. If you've worked up an appetite, check out the fresh seafood eateries on the island's longest beach. Fishermen and cowherds run accommodations, some in wooden thatched houses built by convicts during the 1970s. Hired boats run regularly to the island from Kep.

  • We took a share boat across $US8 each (purchased by our tuk tuk driver who probably got a commission). Boats are fine for a calm weather crossing, not being much of a sailor not sure if I would go in ...  more »
  • The people on this island, as all Cambodians are, are lovely, but the pollution and waste on the beaches is very distressing. No pristine sands here, but plastics strewn everywhere. It made us feel gu...  more »
  • Almost empty when we were there, of many bar/restaurant to spend the day. The main beach is clean and pretty. A trail allows you to walk on the side and look for more isolated corners, but they are often also very dirty (waste etc.). Accessible by boat to the day: departure around 9: 00, return around 4 pm.

  • Don't spread the word.. this is a little paradise. Very simple and perfect to relax. Enjoy a barbecue on the beach, swim and chill-out.
  • Nice small island to stay a few days, reading a book. Bungalows start at US 5, clear water and deckchairs along the beach.
  • A great island for the day. Take a walk around the island takes S few hours. Path not clear in places but good fun. It is a bit of a party island with lots of sunburnt bodies but for a day trip it is great. Food reasonably priced. Boats really well organised. A lot of rubbish around the edges of the island the only negative.
  • Rubbish island! Plastic everywhere. Don't being your swimming clothes because you DEDICATEDLY DON'T WANT TO SWIM HERE
  • I live here from December until April. It is just fantastic. Quiet, good food, lovely people and delicious cocktails. A magic place with energetic fibes.
