The Real Beach Life of Cambodia

When Cambodia was under French rule, Kep belonged to the Circonscription Résidentielle de Kampot, quickly becoming Cambodia’s most prestigious seaside town. Established in 1908 and subsequently named Kep-Sur-Mer, the resort town thrived for both the French and Cambodian elite until the 1960s.

The aftermath of the Vietnam war and the Khmer Rouge rule left Kep as a shattered remnant of what once was and relatively untouched and forgotten about for many years.

Kep town was left with ruined shells of grand villas, if not destroyed, then pillaged by the returning Vietnamese army.

However, in keeping with Cambodia’s construction and the last decade’s economic boom, Kep has re-emerged as an idyllic coastal town that many find far more attractive than commercialised beachfront elsewhere.

Kep is known to attract more family tourism than other coastal towns and islands, where you find more backpacking tourism 40 minutes out of town in Kampot.

For people looking to buy or invest in land in Kep or conduct business, buying a hotel in Kep is an excellent option as the area saw several new resorts and medium to high-end hotels appear in recent years.

The majority of the permanent expat community are involved in the hotel or hospitality industry. For people looking to retire, buying a house in Kep is a perfect choice.

Kep delivers charm, tranquillity and sublime seafood.

KEP – What to do

The Crab Market

Kep is known as the seafood capital of Cambodia, and its famed crab market delivers on all levels. With many beachfront restaurants, you sit and watch crab being collected in baskets and on your table in 30 minutes.

Although named ‘The Crab Market’, a wide range of fresh seafood and shellfish are available and cooked in various styles.

Kep National Park 

Kep National Park is ideal for those into trekking and walking, offering a stunning view of the coast the further up the trail you go. The 8km trail can take around two to hours to complete.

The park has a place to rest and sit with an incredible view of the Cambodian coastline, Bokor mountain and Vietnam.

You will find monkeys, exotic birds, and other smaller animals not seen in the town and two Buddhist Wats on the trail.

Only 20 minutes by boat awaits the idyllic island of Koh Tonsay (Rabbit Island), here you will find snorkelling, beach huts to stay the night and fishing opportunities.

Access roads to Kep were upgraded in the recent past, making it easily accessible. A journey from Phnom Penh can take a little as two and a half hours by road.

Kep Beach

Although small, Kep beach is a pristine stretch of sandy beach. You will find plenty of vendors lining the roads, selling food, snacks and beverages. Busy on weekends, but not so during the week, it’s not to be missed.

Kampot Pepper

A visit to the pepper plantation is a highlight of any time spent in Kep. Only 20 minute drive to Phnom Voar mountain, is a chance to see how one of the world’s best pepper is grown and cultivated.

The pepper was previously ranked number one globally, with all the finest French restaurants using it in their dishes.

Thanks to NGOs and local companies, Kampot pepper is making a return to supermarket shelves and restaurant dishes alike.

The pepper sold in the local markets is generally from Vietnam or other regions where various chemicals are part of the growing culture; Kampot pepper is natural.

Koh Tonsay (Rabbit Island)

Only a 20-minute boat trip away lies Koh Toney. It is a quaint little island with a series of cheap bungalows for overnight stays.

With each guesthouse comes a restaurant, and there are activities such as snorkelling and fishing to pass the time. With its beautiful big green palm trees set against the backdrop of pure blue skies, it is a piece of paradise to enjoy whilst in Kep, and the sunsets certainly do not disappoint.

The Sailing Club

For expats looking to buy a business in Kep or buy a house in Kep and stay permanently, the Sailing club is ideal for meeting long-term residents.

Just next to the crab market is one of the trendier places to be in town. Here you can rent kayaks, catamarans or speedboats, or enjoy a meal or some cocktails on the beachfront.

Indeed, many restaurants with global cuisines are now available, such as Italian, French, Khmer, Asian seafood, and French bakeries.

Kep Real Estate

In general, Kep has enough amenities for Westerners to live in, such as a western supermarket near the ferry to Koh Tonsay, there are banks and ATMs.

Internet companies operate there, and transportation is simple to hire to get around the town.

However, the commercial market is nowhere near saturated, and many business ideas that have worked in other Asian coastal towns are yet to reach Kep.

Kep has a considerable opportunity for land investment to build resorts. It is an eco-friendly place where that kind of business would be welcomed by the local government and is well on the way to being one of the jewels in the crown of Cambodian beachfront as it once was.
