The geography of Koh Rong

Koh Rong (also romanized as Kaôh Rong or Kos Rong) is the second largest island in Cambodia with an area of ​​about 78 km². 43km of Koh Rong's 61km coastline are beaches (there are over 23 individual beaches varying in length and colour, some of which have now been opened up for tourism - read oursDer ultimative Koh Rong Beach Guideto learn more).

The island is located in the Gulf of Thailand about 25km off the coast of Sihanoukville. It is based at No. 5 Municipality (Sangkat) or Sangkat Koh Rong in Mittakpheap District of Sihanoukville Province (see video card).

The terrain on Koh Rong is predominantly hilly, with a 316 m high mountain to the northwest. Most of the interior of the island is covered in jungle forest, with several waterfalls, bays, capes and sandstone cliffs adding to the beautiful scenery. Check out this video to see some beautiful scenes of Koh Rong scenery:

Exposed to the weather and the open sea, the south side of Koh Rong is particularly beautiful, while the east side is characterized by rolling hills that gently slope down to crescent-shaped beaches, bays and coves.

Koh Rong Archipel

Koh Rong's neighboring islands include Koh Tuich to the southeast, the twin islands of Koh Bong-Po'own (Koh Song-Saa) to the northeast, and Koh Koun and Koh Rong Samloem to the south. These five islands form the Sangkat Koh Rong (or Municipality 5 of Mittakpheap District).


Story of 'Rong'

There is some uncertainty about the history of the word "rong" - some islanders say it refers to a historical figure's name, while others believe it refers to an ancient term for "cave" or "tunnel" or on the term 'accommodation' island'.

Marine Conservation on Koh Rong

Cambodia has finally launched its first-ever large-scale marine conservation project – Several areas (approximately 405 km² in total) around the Koh Rong Islands are now Marine Fisheries Management Areas.

(Video) Exploring the other side of the island | Koh Rong Cambodia 2023

1) Lonely Beach - Possibly the best beach on the islands (even better than Lazy Beach on Koh Rong Samloem).lonely beachto the north side of Koh Rong island. While not in the best location, it really is absolutely stunning. The little alcove feels like a real island paradise, with crystal clear sea water, soft white sandy beaches and towering palm trees all around. The atmosphere is pretty tranquil - so peaceful and tranquil with just a few crickets chirping in the background. There are very few people around so you feel quite isolated and secluded in a really beautiful setting.

2) 4K Beach (Long Set Beach) – We would say that 4K Beach is number two on the list, although there are now someseveral health resortsbuilt along this wondrous stretch of white sand, sparkling turquoise ocean and tropical jungle wilderness. The great thing about this beach, aside from the stunning scenery and inviting pristine waters, is that it is a short walk from the main tourist area on Koh Rong Island (Koh Touch).

3) White Beach - At number 3 we will betWhite Beach– 10 minute walk from the main pier on Koh Touch. Granted, there are probably better beaches out there, but White Beach's convenience and the quality of the resorts in the area pushes it up a notch or two. Despite what you might read elsewhere, this other side of Koh Touch isn't a party spot and doesn't suffer the same setbacks as other more popular areas. The beach on this part of the tourist route is clean and well-kept, with soft, white sand and beautiful, clear sea water.

Q: What should I bring?

A: We recommend that you bring plenty of cash, bug spray, sunscreen and other necessities. There are small shops on both islands where you can buy most things you might need, but prices can be inflated so it's a good idea to stock up on essentials before you leave.

Q: Is it easy to get Cambodia visa?

A: Yes - it is generally very easy to get a Cambodian visa. Although there are tighter restrictions on business visas (which now require a Cambodian work permit), the tourist visa (1 month stay) is very easy and can be applied for at the airport/border crossing upon your arrival. If you want to skip the lines, you can now buy your visa online here:Buy a visa online now.

Q: Is there an ATM on the islands?

A: Although there is no ATM as such, you can still withdraw cash from any of the three Eftpos terminalsKoh Touch(the main tourist area on Koh Rong Island). There is an Eftpos terminal at Green Ocean Guesthouse, White Rose Guesthouse and Koh Lanta.

Q: Is there a medical facility?

A: There is a medical facilityKoh Touch(the main tourist area on Koh Rong Island). Please ask someone for directions when you get there.

Q: Is it a family friendly place?

A: Yes, there are many quiet, family-friendly spots on the islands. Please see ourshotel guideAndbeach guideto learn more.

Q: When is the rainy season?

A: The rainy season on Koh Rong Island lasts from mid-May to early November. During these months, short, heavy rain showers can occur during the day. One thing to note is that while it's wonderfully hot during peak season, there are several benefits to visiting the islands during the rainy season.
