Koh Rong island is one of those places where you and your family can spend a whole week doing nothing but enjoying life and yourself. There are beautiful and untouched beaches to relax and soak up the sun, some great scuba diving and snorkelling, quad bike riding, and even… helicopter trips! If you’re looking for things to do on Kong Rong paradise island, then this blog post will give you the perfect introduction with these 6 things to do on Koh Rong island.
Soaking up the Sunshine
The white sandy beaches, turquoise oceans, and clear blue skies create the perfect recipe for sitting on the beach and doing nothing at all.
The beaches here are some of the most beautiful in the area and the island hasn’t yet been overdeveloped into a huge tourist attraction.
This means that they’re perfect for grabbing a good book, getting your beach towel and spending your days laying around on the beach and going for a dip in the ocean.
Although Koh Rong isn’t as popular as other places in Cambodia, such as Koh Rong Samloem, Koh Prins or Koh Tang for diving, it is a good place for novices and beginners. Serious divers will be unhappy with the lack of visibility compared to the places mentioned above, but for everyone else, it’s a good introduction into the world of diving.
There are a few dive centres on the Island, but you want to make sure whatever one you go for is operated by professional diving instructors.
Snorkelling is a popular pastime on the island and many people enjoy trying their hand at spotting some of the tropical fish who call the area their home. You can see parrot fist, seahorses, jumping fish, yellow boxfish, needle fish, blue-spotted tail rays and even whale shark if you’re lucky enough.
There are many good areas to go snorkelling and the team at Sok San Beach Resort will be able to give you some good advice about where to go. If you prefer an organised tour, then we can help you to arrange that too.
Take a Sunset Boat Trip
As the sun starts to set and the fishing boats come to shore, you can go out and see the sun setting over the ocean. The unobstructed view of the sunset is like no other and you’ll be glad you took the short journey too see the magical colours lighting up the sky every morning.
Zipline 50ft in the air, swing through the trees and let your inner-chimpanzee come out to play in this exhilarating experience. The view of the island from the top of the trees is like nothing you’ll have experienced before.

Night swim with the Plankton
Koh Rong is famous for the “glow-in-the-dard” bioluminescent plankton. You can go for an evening swim and see the ocean glow all around you. Try heading to one of the deserted beaches and taking a look at the plankton.
