This quiet coastal destination around 16 miles from Kampot used to be Cambodia’s beach town in the 1960s, but nowadays the old villas are in ruins. The main draw of visiting Kep is the oceanfront seafood stalls, which there are many to pick from, all serving the same delicious fare of locally caught fish, crab, squid, prawns, snails and many other seafood delicacies. You can go to the seafront and choose your live catch from the fishermen, actually more likely fisherwomen and then your selection will be barbecued for you and brought to your table within fifteen minutes. A full table of assorted seafood with rice, vegetables and beer will set you back around $25 for four people. Before or after eating do visit the quiet beach for a relaxing swim.
The journey from Kampot takes around 45 minutes. You can hire a moto driver for $8 round trip or quite easily do the journey yourself on a hired motorbike.
