Beach in Kep

This handkerchief-sized strip of sand is Kep's only proper beach. In the prewar period, powder-white sand was trucked in from other beaches and this practice began again in 2013, ensuring the beach is now in better shape than it has been for years. It’s still somewhat pebbly and can get packed on weekends. The eastern end of the shaded promenade along the beach is marked by Sela Cham P’dey, a statue depicting a nude fisherman’s wife awaiting her husband's return.
