IMPORTANT INFORMATIONS BEFORE DEPARTING

Koh Rong is quite possibly that cliched island paradise you've been looking for, boasting pristine white beaches, turquoise water and limited development. For years the island was almost completely undeveloped save for a diving outfit and a few bungalows on either side of the island. 

In late 2010 and early 2011, a number of new operations opened up, as well asregular boats to the island. Since late 2012, more accommodation has been built and an increasing number of visitors have been discovering the beauty of island life here. But with still only 18 sets of bungalows on the 78 square kilometre island at the time of writing in early 2013, it still has a near-deserted feel to it with just enough going on to make it comfortable. 

The island is truly gorgeous, and well worth the two-and-a-half hour boat trip from Sihanoukville. There are seven bays on the island, all teeming with marine life, making for great snorkelling and diving. The much-touted millionaires' hang-out Song Saa Resort is to the north of the island, but you can save your cash and get the same paradise views at a fraction of the cost elsewhere. There's enough to keep even the most active visitor busy, with diving, snorkelling, mountain biking, trekking, kayaks and motorbike treks, and plenty of sand, sun and sea for those with more relaxed tastes.

Koh Rong has 43 kilometres of beaches, but the majority of bars and accommodation is on the southeast, by Koh Touch village. There's a shop, laundry services and a choice of eating, but no ATMs or internet cafes. The clientele closest to the village are mostly backpackers and divers, with expats and couples preferring more seclusion further along the beach. Other one-off resorts are set around the island at the northeast and southwest – ideal if you're looking for real peace and isolation. 

The interior of the island is largely undeveloped and travelling between beaches requires trekking or a boat. One of the most beautiful beaches, north of Koh Touch, is known as Long Set beach, after the farmer who lives there growing cashews, coconuts and mangoes. Thanks to the views, it's thought it will be the first one to be developed. Around the point to the west of Koh Touch, the white coral sand bay known as 7km beach, with Sok San village at one end, is also a potential development site.

So if you want to take advantage of Koh Rong's perfect beaches, diving, snorkelling and phosphorescent night swimming (subject to availability), go now

ORIENTATION

Rooms are highly sought after in high season, and it's better to book before you go, or arrive on the early ferry to catch rooms at Koh Touch beach. Be aware that the island does not have mains electricity and resorts rely on generators for power. Water is also a precious commodity, and most bathrooms employ an economical bucket flush system.

If you're not keen on sharing your digs with geckos and falling asleep to the sound of frogs, Koh Rong is probably not for you.

One of the problems of deserted beaches is that undisturbed sand can be the perfect habitat for sand flies. These small black flies like to bite, and leave itchy red marks that can irritate for days. The best approach is prevention – bring along some good strong repellant with DEET and apply it first thing in the morning as well as after the sun goes down.

While you're enjoying the turquoise waters, don't forget to look for sea urchins orsea eggs underfoot. The spines are painful if they embed in your sole and won't pull out easily. However, the discomfort will wear off in a couple of days and these particular creatures are not dangerous.

Being a small, mostly uninhabited island, medical help is very limited. The very friendly Sarah, who works with Koh Rong Dive Centre, offers first aid treatment on a donation basis from the blue house on the first pier at Koh Touch. However, for anything halfway serious, you'll need to return to Sihanoukville or Phnom Penh. Bring some supplies of iodine and plasters with you, and take care of yourself!

Many adventurous travelers are looking beyond the temples at Angkor to see what else Cambodia has to offer. One possibility is the Koh Rong Archipelago, whose main island is a 30-minute boat ride from the coastal town of Sihanoukville.

Koh Rong Island is an inexpensive, unspoiled island getaway with turquoise-green waters, miles of powder-white beaches, endless palm trees, untouched fishing villages and only a handful of beachfront bungalows. But do not wait too long.

 

 

If you want to relive the Thailand of 20 years ago, when only a handful of backpackers showed up on its island shores — before roads, vehicles, development and tourism took their toll — many agree that Koh Rong, Cambodia is as close as it gets.

 

Unfortunately word has already gotten out. In 2006, Kithr Meng, a Cambodian tycoon, purchased a 99-year lease on the island from the Cambodian government. His 20-year plan includes building an airport for small aircrafts, a marina, a golf course, casinos and several five-star resorts. His goal is to make Koh Rong the most famous destination in Cambodia.

 

But the beauty of Koh Rong is that while there are some activities on the island, such as snorkelling, scuba diving and a somewhat bushwhacking trek through its dense jungles and mangroves, there is not much else to do. If is the goal is to disconnect from your iPhone or Blackberry, swim in pristine waters and follow the sun’s arch while reading a good book, there are few undeveloped island destinations better suited to unplug and unwind.

 

So far development has been slow, with only a dirt road being blazed through the centre of the island.  But eventually five fingers of roads will lead to expensive, upscale resorts. Legally, Meng can bulldoze the island’s four beach bungalow lodging options at any time, needing only to give the owners a month’s notice.
