Why Angkul Beach is special ?
Angkul Beach, known as The Secret Beach of Kep, is a remote beach to the south east from Kep (near Viet Nam border). The white beach is quite long and many coconut trees provide shade the beach. There is a small fishing village and a small temple on the hill behind. The possibilities of food or drinks are very limited, so it’s best to bring a lunch pack. During the high season (From November to April) there is normally a small stand which serves cold drinks, an entire chicken ($10) and snacks and have some deck chairs and umbrellas.
What to explore at Angkul Beach?
Visiting Angkul beach, you can see the beach, which is around 2 km long, is clean with white sand and totally deserted except for some fishermen.
You will see a couple of nice looking pics in the photos - amazing what the camera can hide, these are a bit further down the beach where it looks a lot better - but from what was just behind the camera, no one felt the desire to swim.
There is a small fishing village and a small temple on the hill behind. The possibilities of food or drinks are very limited, but there are some khmer vendors where you can buy cold drinks and some food. There are also some bungalows with hammocks where you can relax and enjoy.
How to get to Angkul Beach?
You can go by motodub, or can explore it by yourself. It is quite easy to find. On the road to Phnom Penh/Kompong Trach you turn right and follow the big road towards Vietnam. Before the salt fields you turn right (there is a entrance gate for the temple) and just follow this road. It takes about 30 – 40 minutes from Kep.

Tips for you
There are two levels of sand at this beach. the one brought in by nature and the one brought in by man. Either way, it is a clean beach that extends for awhile giving everyone a chance to find their 'spot'. The water is ridiculously warm which for those visitors from more northerly climates in the world is a real plus. There are inner tubes available for rent - just like so many other fun things in Kep. Definitely worth the time. And close by are great little restaurants and hammocks you can rent to put up your feet and read that 'summer book' - even if it is November !
