5 Best Beach Bars in Sihanoukville

Where to Party on the Beach in Sihanoukville

The best beach bars in Sihanoukville are mostly on either Otres Beach or Serendipity Beach. Being a backpacker haven, the city attracts a fun-loving party crowd and, as most of the budget hotels and hostels can be found around Serendipity Beach Road, it’s no surprise that this area has the densest concentration of the loudest and busiest nightlife attractions. Otres Beach, by contrast, has more of a hippie atmosphere, with more easy-going bars on the sand there.

When choosing where to party on the beach in Sihanoukville, there is a lot of choice, with many of the places available offering pretty much the same experience. However, the following five bars each promise something special, whether it’s an unbeatable atmosphere, exceptional drinks offers, great music or something a bit different. For one reason or another, these are the most popular places to party by the sea in Sihanoukville.

Otres Corner Bar Sessions

Otres 1 Beach

As well as being the best and liveliest beach bar on Otres 1 Beach, Otres Corner hosts the largest monthly full moon parties. While they’re significantly smaller than the world-famous events on Thailand’s Koh Phangan, they are still very popular and a lot of fun. Expect live DJs, all-night cocktails from US$1.50 each, fire shows and more until the early morning. For the rest of the month, Otres Corner is actually quite peaceful, with movie nights, board game evenings and a generally relaxed vibe.

JJ’s Playground Sessions

Serendipity Beach

JJ’s is a late-night bar which doesn’t even really get going until after midnight. It is popular with backpackers for its cheap drinks and live DJs all night every night. There are also fire shows, different party themes every night and regular special parties (including full moon parties). JJ’s is really a cross between a nightclub and a beach bar, so expect a packed dance floor and loud House music until the early hours of the morning.

Serendipity Beach

Sessions stands out from the dozens of other beach bars along Serendipity Beach because of its choice of music, playing classic and indie rock (sometimes including live bands) instead of the usual dance and Top 40 hits. It is one of the longest-running bars in the area and is something of a Sihanoukville institution. There are plenty of great drinks offers available, including a daily happy hour from 16:00 to 21:00.

Rocky Bar

Serendipity Beach

Rocky Bar is one of the newer bars on Serendipity Beach, but has already made a name for itself among the backpacker community. It has a pretty similar format to Dolphin Bar (because, if you’re going to follow any example, it might as well be the best), with loud house and pop music, cheap booze by the bucket and both indoor and outdoor spaces, so you can have either a nightclub or beach club setting in once place.
