Rabbit Island

Rabbit Island or Koh Tonsay is a small island about 30 minutes off the shore of Kep.  If you are visiting Kep, it is a nice day excursion to take. (I would not recommend staying any longer than a day.) The island is quite small and not very developed but that’s the charm of going to islands like this.  There is a small store/restaurant where you can buy drinks or eat lunch.  To get to this small island, you must charter a small boat.  The ride takes about 30 minutes. (Tip: remember to bring a hat, sunscreen, and sunglasses because there’s no covering over the boat.) The ride itself is very enjoyable and you get a chance to get up close and personal with the deep blue sea.  If  you get a sunny day, the clear blue skies will just leave you feeling carefree.

When you arrive on Rabbit Island, you will notice how little people are here.  It’s almost like having your own private island!  The way I spent my time was by bringing books to read and iPhone to play games on.  And of course I went for a few swims in the ocean.  Who could pass up the beautiful Cambodian waters?!?  We also had lunch on the island.  It was a seafood lunch, and it was so fresh and delicious.  All in all, if you are looking for a great beach experience in Kep, look no further than Rabbit Island!
