Sokha Beach adjoins O’Cheuteal Beach. It is also long though the water is deeper than here. The beach was once more crowded than O’Cheuteal Beach, because Cambodians prefer it to the other beaches. However, Oknha Sok Kung’s Sokha Hotel Company recently took over operations at the beach. The company is building up the area in hope of attracting more tourists to Sihanoukville.
Sihanoukville’s Sokha Beach wins our vote for the nicest beach in Sihanoukville, with its radiant stretch of fine white sand and shallow waters ideal for floating and lazy days.
The beach is backed by the huge, sprawling Sokha Beach Resort, the first — though no doubt, not the last — truly flash hotel to plunk down in Sihanoukville.Although it’s a shame to see one resort dominate the beach, at least they look after it well — the beach is near-always clean and the water sparkling. There is a very shallow drop off here, so you can wander a long way out into the water before it gets particularly deep, making it great for those with young children.While we personally had no problems accessing the beach without being a guest, there have been persistent reports regarding hotel security guards chasing non-guests off the beach. One option we guess is to approach the beach through the resort — one assumes the guards don’t have identikits of all the guests — but one would have hoped this would not have been necessary in the first place.
If you do get chased off, there is a very small patch of sand in front of Malibu and as they’re a pretty cool lot running this joint we can’t imagine they’d chase you off as well.
