5 Best Things to Do in Koh Rong

Koh Rong Must-See Attractions and Places

The best attractions in Koh Rong include both stunning natural sights as well as exciting manmade facilities. Much of the island’s charm comes from the fact that it is largely unspoilt and undeveloped. Indeed, the most remarkable must-see attraction on Koh Rong is only visible because of that simple fact. Most of the manmade options are simply responses to the fun-loving nature of the sorts of people attracted to such a beautiful place.

Ultimately, the main attractions of the island paradise near Sihanoukville are the pristine white-sand beaches. However, other than the 23 separate sandy shores, these are the major points of interest on the island.

Bioluminescent Plankton
Bioluminescent Plankton

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. While the plankton itself is not actually harmful, swimming in the sea at night can be as many dangerous creatures come out to hunt.

Remark: Only visible on dark, moonless nights

  • Location: Any beach away from Koh Tui Village, but especially Long Set Beach, Koh Rong

High Point Adventure Park
High Point Adventure Park

Explore the beautiful natural jungle of Koh Rong with a zip line adventure through the canopy. High Point offers a 400 metre course including 25 platforms in the jungle canopy, starting just a short walk from Koh Tui Village and ending with an exciting 130-metre line. The park was built among Koh Rong’s tallest trees, with one of the platforms an impressive 25 metres off the ground. The guides are well-trained and the equipment is properly maintained, making this a fun and safe family-friendly activity.

Jungle Zoo
Jungle Zoo

Jungle Zoo is a tiny tropical garden, run by a dedicated and knowledgeable lady named Olga. Wanting to share her love of exotic plants, beautiful butterflies, local birds and other mostly native wildlife, she turned a small patch of jungle into a vision of paradise. Olga offers guided tours, which include tea or coffee, a chance to touch some of the resident animals and the opportunity to enjoy a fascinating chat with this remarkable woman.

Sok San Waterfall
Sok San Waterfall

Koh Rong’s largest waterfall is still a relatively small one, but it is 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.

Remark: During the high season, there is very little water falling

  • Location: about a five-minute walk from Sok San Village, Koh Rong

Koh Rong Blob Jump
Koh Rong Blob Jump

The concept 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 will 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.
