Kep beach

Kep beach is basically a single, kilometer-long crescent of sand near the tip of the Kep peninsula. Dining platforms and seafood vendors line the road behind the beach. The beach area is busy with locals on weekends but often deserted during the week.

There is a very popular seafood market where you can buy fresh prawns, fish and crab, then have it cooked by one of the many kitchens for a small fee. Great with a cold beer.

There are also several cafes, bars and small restaurants lining the road by the sea, a very pleasant place to pass a few hours.

The road through Kep traces the coastline to the beach and then circles back on itself. Be aware that the loop one-way and the police do occasionally enforce the law, levying fines against violators.

Kep is the departure place for Rabbit and the other small islands just off the coast. You will find ticket agents and boats at the pier, just a little further along the coast.
