Otres Beach - Sihanoukville
Located south-east of Sihanoukville, a ten minute moto or tuk-tuk ride away is the three kilometre stretch of sand known as Otres Beach. Up until two years ago this was an undeveloped beach with just a handful of beach shack restaurants spread along it's length providing a peaceful solitude and a true tropical paradise. In 2010 Forbes Magazine published an article naming Otres Beach as one of the top 22 beaches in Asia and since then development has gone on apace including a new sealed road linking Otres with downtown Sihanoukville. Now there are numerous rooms and bungalows available for rent either on the beach or a stone's throw away. A portion of the beach is now covered in sun-loungers and umbrellas and the previous stillness has been replaced by booming party music although towards the far end of the beach the original peaceful atmosphere is still available.
