Koh Ta Kiev
Koh Ta Kiev is the widely-ignored little brother of the island group. Koh Ta Kiev Resort has been in operation for a few years but many travellers have passed it by, perhaps due to the “resort” moniker (which for a collection of simple but sturdy bungalows is soundly undeserved). Recently new accommodation has taken up residence where Jonty’s Jungle Camp used to be. Ten103 Treehouse Bay is nestled deep in the jungle and offers delicious daily specials by professional chefs.
Koh Ta Kiev itself is beautiful, and is one of the closest to Sihanoukville’s mainland. It takes less than an hour to get to one of the three yellow sand beaches surrounded by pine trees &8212; from there, trek into the jungle where more than 100 species of birds make their home as well as some other interesting types of wildlife such as the carnivorous pitcher plant. Snorkellers will also get their fill, and can see giant mussels that aren’t found at all of the other islands.
