How to Get from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong

There are plenty of ways to get from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong, but travelers will want to be prepared to take the right option or they could end up on the complete opposite end of the island than where they want to be.

Here are the best ways to get from Sihanoukville to the different parts of Koh Rong:

Boats from Sihanoukville to Koh Toch Village

Travelers can choose to take a speed boat or a ferry from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong’s Koh Toch Village. The speed boat trip takes approximately forty-five minutes and tickets should be purchased in advance. Some of the speed boats are smaller than others and travelers should be aware that the smaller ones have bumpier and splashier rides. Those who choose to take the ferry will find that the ride takes anywhere from thirty to sixty minutes. However, the ferry doesn’t always travel every day, as it is dependent on how many people are looking to travel out to Koh Rong.

There are many different businesses that offer the speed boat and ferry rides and while they all offer basically the same service, some people have their personal favorites.

Here are the services that travelers can choose from:

  • Speed Ferry Cambodia
  • Buva Sea Ferry
  • GTVC Speedboat
  • Island Speed Ferry Cambodia
  • CC Blue Sea Travel & Tours

There are also yellow supply boats that people can ride over to Koh Rong on, even though they are mainly used to transport goods and the locals. The cost for these slower boats is much less than the above options, but travelers must remember that it will take them longer to reach the island. While these boats normally take two hours to reach the island, they can also take up to three hours if the water is rough or the weather is bad.

Boats from Sihanoukville to Sok San Village

Many of the above boats also travel from Sihanoukville to Sok San Village and the Sok San Beach Resort also has a daily speedboat ferry available for their guests. That ferry is not included in their stay and does cost extra, but it can be worthwhile, as travelers know that they are guaranteed a spot when they arrive at the port.

Boats from Sihanoukville to Daem Thkov Village

Those travelers looking to travel from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong’s Daem Thkov Village will find that they do not have many options. Buva Sea Ferry does travel to that area of the island, but they normally drop everyone off at Coconut Beach, which is a fifteen-minute walk from the village.

There is a converted fishing boat that makes the trip every day as well, and while the trip over is cheap, the ride takes approximately two and a half hours. These boats are often late as well, so no one will know for sure when they are leaving or arriving. That means that no one should count on this mode of transportation, especially if they need to catch a return bus or flight.

Boats from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong’s Prek Svay Village

There is only a local village boat that takes travelers from Sihanoukville to Prek Svay Village. The tickets average five dollars and the trip takes between two and a half and three hours each way. There is only one departure from each side a day.

Boats from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong’s Lonely Beach and Palm Beach

Lonely Beach and Palm Beach are resorts that offer daily ferries, but travelers must purchase their tickets when they make their reservations.

Boats from Sihanoukville to Long Set Beach, Nature Beach, Coconut Beach, and Vietnamese Beach

Buva Sea Ferry is the only boat that will take travelers to any of these destinations on Koh Rong and the trip takes between forty-five minutes and an hour and a half. Some resorts in those areas can recommend better options for their guests, which is why travelers are urged to contact their resort prior to purchasing a ticket.

Hiring Private Boats

Travelers are more than welcome to hire a private boat to get from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong. Most fishing boats, which are locally known as longtail boats, are usually willing to make the trip out to the island. This always costs more than one of the speed boats or ferries but can be worth it if a person misses the last ferry of the day. These boat rides can take between two and three hours. Those who just want to go out to the island for the day can usually pay the same amount of money for a round trip as they would for a one way.

Travel Via Helicopter

Those who want to arrive in style can choose to take a helicopter from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong. There is a helipad at what was supposed to be the Koh Rong Airport, and while the airport is nowhere near completion, the helipad is ready and waiting.

Travelers have quite a few options when they want to go from Sihanoukville to Koh Rong, but everyone needs to make sure that they are taking the right speed boat or ferry for where they want to be on the island. Since this island is quite large, people who arrive in the wrong area will find that they will need to hire yet another boat to get them to where they want to be. This will end up costing them more money than they planned, and it can be quite the inconvenience, as it will be longer before they can begin their vacation in paradise.

Of course, once travelers arrive on this island, they will feel that the journey was worthwhile, and they may even postpone their departure so that they can really enjoy the beauty that is all around them. In fact, so many people do that, it is not recommended for people to purchase their return speed boat or ferry ticket when they arrive.
