For many visitors to Sihanoukville, Otres Beach is where they get their first taste of the Cambodian coastline.
It’s full of touristy shops, eateries, coffee shops and hotels and hostels at nearly every price point, and despite the development and construction nearby Otres has somehow remained cleaner and less cluttered than many other beaches in the area.
During the peak dry-season Otres can get crowded, but it’s still easy to find a relatively quiet spot of the beach, where you can chill or you can hang out at a local bar or café catting with people from all over the world.
Unlike other beaches most of the resorts along Otres are small and there is not much construction going on as on other places in Sihanoukville.
In summary, Otres is a pleasant mix of everything and one of Sihanoukville’s most visited beach.
