Koh Rong island

Koh Rong, also known as Monkey Island, is the second largest island of Cambodia with 43 km of beaches, white sand, coral reefs and many fishes. Koh Rong is 15 km long from north to south and is mostly covered by jungle.

Most of the island is undeveloped, the development is limited to basic bungalows and guesthouses in four small villages. But that’s changing and there are plans by an investment group for an airport and eco-friendly 5* resort on the island.

In the meantime the island remains backpackers' paradise, visitors can stay in guesthouses and bungalows.

When travelling on the island the easiest way is to take a boat to a different place on the island. Or you can walk by foot.

There is no ATM on the island and also no medical care – the closest medical help is in Sihanoukville (bring your own medical kit). No general electricity is available, resorts use power generators (but usually not 24/7). Some of the properties offers free WiFi. Mobile phone coverage is available in some areas, but in remote areas there is no mobile phone coverage.

"Survivor" TV show was filmed on the island.

Note: Koh Rong Sanloem is a different island to the south of Koh Rong.
