Otres Beach, Top 22 Beaches in Asia

Otres Beach is the next beach south of Ochheuteal Beach and resembles Ochheuteal in many ways – a three kilometer crescent of near white sand facing the southwest. But Otres is far less developed and touristic than Ochheuteal, offering a more leisurely, relaxed atmosphere, and caught the eye of Forbes this year, listed amongst the Top 22 Beaches in Asia.

Developers have long been eyeing Otres Beach, and in 2010 a stretch of resorts was forcibly removed. However, Otres has made yet another recovery and is currently in rude health with more than 30 bungalow resorts in the area, including a couple of more upmarket boutique hotels. It’s fair to say that Otres is no longer the empty beach it once was. Even so, Otres has cleaner water and is more relaxed than anything in Sihanoukville proper, and is lengthy enough that finding your own patch of private sand is not a challenge… just walk south.

Otres Beach actually split into two different areas – Otres 1 and Otres 2. Otres One is the more developed of the two, but calling it developed is only due to lack of a better word. For a couple of hundred meters, cheap thatched and bamboo bungalows front the beachside with the odd higher-end hotel complex breaking up the backpacker’s haunts.

Great cheap restaurants offer typical Khmer food such as amok curry and lok lak as well as fresh seafood dishes and Western fare. Almost every place has a great view of the Gulf of Thailand, and the white sand beaches that shines in the daylight sun. There are several bungalows and small guesthouses on the beach, most sitting right on the sand just a few meters from the water. Price and quality of the rooms and bungalows varies, so shop around for the room that best suits your budget and requirements. Tours in Cambodia
