With its radiant stretch of fine white sand and shallow waters ideal for floating and lazy days, Sokha Beach is voted as a nicest beach in Sihanoukville.
What to do
Sokha beach begins at the tail of the dragon at the edge of the rocky headland that divides it from Ochheuteal. The first thing you’ll do when you see that concrete tail is wonder what it’s doing there sticking out of the sand. Its secret lies inside the grounds of the Sokha Resort, where the much larger and better maintained head of the dragon emerges. The tail of the dragon at the free end of Sokha beach literally marks the tail end of the resort’s turf. The beach you’re going to is compliments of the resort.
Refreshingly devoid of buildings, your basic necessities are all there thanks to the vendors who hang out around the steps down to the beach. Also refreshing is the fact that they don’t aggressively peddle their goods. On the negative side, although from a distance the wide beach on the free end of Sokha looks enticing, it does get littered occasionally, especially during the high season. If you can turn a blind eye to the rubbish, though, it has a lot to offer, especially if you like clambering around in tide pools, swimming or sunbaking.
