Why Otres Beach is special ?

- Otres beach streches a three kilometer crescent of near white sand facing the southwest.  - It’s a beautiful, clean, quiet and more relaxed than anywhere in Sihanoukville.

- There many bungalows and small guesthouses on the beach, most sitting right on the sand just a few meters from the water.

- There are no hotels, spas or large restaurants on Otres, just a string of beach-shack bars, restaurants and bungalows stretching along the sand serving seafoods, each place has its own unique flavor



What to explore at Otres Beach?

At the northern end of the Otres beach also has an expanding range of activities on offer:

• Hurricane Windsurfing , which rents out paddle boards (per hour US$8), 

• Windsurfers (basic/high-performance boards per hour US$10/20), 

• Sea kayaks (single/tandem per hour US$4/6) 

• Skim boards (try bungee skim boarding). 

About 700m south, near the main cluster of guesthouses:

• Blue Lagoon Kitesurf Centre.

• Daily boat tours to four islands (per person US$15 including breakfast, lunch, snorkelling and a drink or two).

Way down to Otres Nautica:

• French-run outfit that rents tandem sea kayaks (per hour US$4)

• Hobie Cat sailing catamarans (per hour US$10) that you can take out to nearby islands. 

• A boat for snorkelling or island-hopping excursions.

At the northern ‘near end’ (Otres 1) is dozens of beachshack bars and restaurants squeeze together along a kilometer of sand. 

Plenty of different sorts of places to choose from, some staying open quite late, offering events, music and such. 

There are also a dozen-plus guesthouses and bungalows lining the beachfront road 20 meters from the water.





How to get to Otres Beach?

1) The road from Ochheuteal over the hill through Queen Hill Resort allows easy motorcycle access but is blocked to cars and tuk-tuks. 

2) By car or tuk-tuk from Ochheuteal: follow Polaway Street (1 Kanda Street) to the end of the pavement and turn left, cross the bridge and proceed about 500m to the next right turn. Turn and follow the road about 2.3km to the beach. Rough road. 

3) Omui Street from downtown is paved and in good condition. Follow to the Otres turnoff and turn left. 

4) If going it alone, follow the road southeast along the beach and skirt the hill by headling inland on the inviting tarmac. From the city centre, you can take Omui St from Psar Leu east out of town for 5km

5) Otres Beach is about 5km south of the Serendipity area. It’s a US$2/5 moto /remork ride to get here (more at night).
