VICTORY BEACH IN SIHANOUKVILLE IS BETTER THAN they say

"I left home to do a little travel and now I can't go Back!"

Victory Beach is at the Northern end of the Sihanoukville Peninsula and thus offers the best views of the sunrise and sunset.

The first time I came to Sihanoukville, was way back in 2003. The buses used to drop everyone off at Weather Station Hill (Krong Road), which overlooks Victory Beach.

There were very few other options for budget accommodation in Sihanoukville back then.

Big things have come and gone, but Victory Beach has become a better place in 2020. One of the very few area in Sihanoukville that have seen improvement.

While the center of the city has become a Mega Casino hub of gambling, drinking, noisy tourists, Victory Beach has become a place that has it all.

Far enough away from city center

Victory Beach is about 3 kilometres away from Sihanoukville City center. The only drawback is that the beaches are bland in comparison to what you'll see off on the islands or to the South of the city.

Even the water is not nearly as welcoming, and thus less people swim there. It lacks that Emerald sheen and the warmth of the Southern Beaches or outer Islands.

But, it makes up for it with more privacy, security and civility combined with stunning sunsets and sunrises.

There is also a bountiful variety of things to see and do. You can eat at the most expensive resort, or in the most humble of local kitchens.

Same goes for the variety of Guesthouses and Resorts.

I stayed at Sakal Bungalows on Weather Station Hill. It overlooks the Beach and offers some cheap and pleasant huts above the bar with sea views.

The menu is brief but the food is excellent. The bar has a massive TV for sports and films, and stays open as long as it needs to.

Walk South along Victory Beach until you run into a small length of sand called Lamherkey Beach.

It's a nice walk and stunning to walk at night under the stars, drunk on the plentiful and cheap booze at one of the many beachfront restaurants. Those were my best nights on this Beach.
