Cambodia’s coastal waters are peppered with tens of tropical offshore islands, many of them an easy trip from Sihanoukville and a couple of which lie within Ream. Peaceful and idyllic – for now (see Trouble in paradise) – lapped by clear seas and graced with white-sand beaches, they’re great places to hole up in for a few days, and offer a smattering of rustic accommodation. Snorkelling, sunbathing, gentle walks and lounging are positively encouraged; all of these improve the further you travel offshore (particularly the snorkelling). They are also superb destinations for diving.
