Unperturbed by the happenings beyond its vicinity, this beach takes you far away to a land of fantasy. As its name suggest you can literally feel liberated in the freshness of the entire surrounding.

Очень хорошее и спокойное место в Сиануке. Идеально для прогулок с детьми. В самый солнцепек есть тень и прогулочная. Нет попрошаек. Парковка платная.

This is my favourite beach in the area. It's a short Tuk Tuk ride from Serendipity Beach and is completely different as there's less bars and restaurants and so is much more peaceful. The bars and restaurants have sun loungers and free Wi-Fi available and all serve a variety of drinks and food.The beach was pretty clean and it was lovely swimming in the warm water. There are hawkers trying to sell their wares but they weren't bothersome and a polite no thank you sends them on their way

We went to Independence Beach early in the morning, before the wind started, and before many people arrived. Only half of the beach is public, the other half being the property of the "Independence Hotel". The water was reasonably clean, but only small waves. There are loungers on the public part of the beach, provided by the shopkeepers along the beach, who expect you to either buy something from their shop, or pay to use their loungers! Keep watch for young thieves, who wander around looking for careless people who leave their valuables exposed! Don't give them a chance, one person watch belongings at all times! By lunchtime there was a strong sea breeze, which stirred up the ocean, dirtying the water, and bringing in all of the pollutants (plastic bags, etc) onto the beach!

Actually you can access the beach without paying, just walk in from the road where the fence has holes or walk in from the beaches nearby. Once here, you can just order a drink from the many little hu
