Koh Tonsay (Rabbit Island), Kep

3.3
#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.

    The island itself very nice but definitely must take the initiative to clean it from the trash (mostly plastic). Great potential wasted yet it would take little extra attention, pity!

Where to stay in Kep

Kep has a set of accommodations to suit a range of budgets and styles. The area around the crab market has the greatest choice of options, with aged villas turned into guesthouses both luxury and standard, and resorts of bungalows and stand-alone villas. Some of the more budget-friendly resorts have bungalows with shared bathrooms and limited amenities, while the more luxurious resorts center on old French colonial villas and pack in extras, such as restaurants, pools, and spas. Follow the coastal road down to Kep Beach for the same accommodation types, but with fewer choices.
