Koh Rong Samloem Island

Koh Rong Samloem, also spelt Sanloem and Saloem, is situated eighteen kilometres due west of Sihanoukville in the Gulf of Thailand and is reachable in about forty-five minutes by fast ferry or about two hours using one of  the slower converted fishing boats, depending on the conditions.

We paid $20 (off-season rate) for a trip that included snorkelling, a bugget lunch onboard and a couple of hours on the island.

White beaches with almost no litter, sadly a rare sight in South East Asia these days, but what a pleasure to walk on a pristine beach.

Take a slow walk along the beach - there is rustic island beauty everywhere you look.

Fresh water pool at the base of a waterfall - the round things in the water are tables.The top just sticks out of the water, so you can sit in the water with your drinks. Image you and twenty of your closest friends partying here!
