The best attractions in Koh Rong include both stunning natural sights as well as exciting manmade facilities.

Being far from the lights of civilisation, the faint blue glow of bioluminescent plankton makes some of the beaches of Koh Rong sparkle on moonless nights. Quite a spooky, ethereal effect, it is a really stunning natural sight and one which is usually only available in very remote parts of the world.
Note that they're only visible on dark, moonless nights on any beach away from Koh Tui Village, but especially on Long Set Beach. While the plankton itself is not actually harmful, swimming in the sea at night can be, as many dangerous creatures come out to hunt.

Koh Rong’s largest waterfall is still a relatively small one, but it's certainly picturesque. Best seen during or just after the rainy season, a sheet of water tumbles about 4 metres down into a rocky plunge pool.
A pleasant place to relax and cool off, it is quite easy to access, being just a short walk away from Sok San Village. You can reach the waterfall about a 5-minute walk from Sok San Village. Note that during the high season, the water volume can be very little. Read More...

The concept of the Koh Rong Blob Jump is very simple. You sit on one end of a giant inflatable blob and one or two people jump onto the other end from platforms either 4 or 6 metres up. Physics does the rest and you get thrown high into the air, only to come splashing down into the crystal-clear seas around Koh Rong.
It’s very exciting and a lot of fun. You'll be provided with a crash helmet and life jacket, but there are obviously still some risks in crashing down into the water from as high as 7 metres in the air. Read More...
