Koh Tonsay
(Khmer: កោះទន្សាយ) is located about 4.5 Kilometers southwest of Kep. Tourists are drawn to the two beautiful white sand beaches, and the sea is shallow excellent for swimming. At the sea bottom are a variety of corals, sea animals and plants which attract researchers and ecologists.

The name Koh Tonsay is derived from the word Rumsay. While trying to avoid the commander’s troops, Prince Sakor Reach grew hopeless because his own troops began to tire. He led his remaining troops across the sea to an island in front of Kep city, where the troops spread out. Accordingly, the island was called Koh Rumsay, Koh Ormsay, Koh Ornsay, and Koh Tonsay, as it is known today. Another version is that, according to many locals who spent there youth in Kep before 1975, the island was previously called Koh Antai. There is no apparent meaning for this word.

Koh Tonsay is 2 square kilometers in area. During then-Prince Norodom Sihanouk’s Sangku Reastr Niyum regime, it was used as a place to rehabilitate criminals, who were also used to defend the island. Horse cart paths and wooden, thatch roofed motels were also constructed during this time. Most of this infrastructure has been destroyed by weather and decades of war. Today, seven families live on the island. They earn their living by fishing and growing coconut trees.

Phnom Sar Sear is a fabulous natural and cultural resort situated at a distance of 14 km. from the provincial town of Kampot.

Phnom Sar Sear consists of three small mountains spread across a total land area of approximately 1.5 square kilometers. The mountain rises to a height of around 40 meters. Tourists can visit the mountain caves here. Among the caves, the cave of Phnom Ach Pro Chiev and particularly, the cave of Phnom Dam Rey Sar, are the most well known ones.Here, you will find a great architecture of Viel Sre inside.

On the mountaintop of Phnom Sar Sear, you will find a colorful stupa built in 1964 by the princess Rasmey Sou Phoan. The stupa is a holy worshipping place where it is believed the cremated ash of the Buddha are kept. On the mountaintop are sweeping views of rice fields, forests, local villages, islands and the vast sea. The mountain is also a worshipping place for people who come here to pray.

Kep Beach is a famous seaside resort with twelve months of sunshine, which is 1,000 metters long. The beach is diffrerent from the beach of Sihanouk Ville because it has black sand.

From Kep, it takes 30 minutes to reach the nine other islands located on its opposite side by boat. Over there, one can enjoy splendid mountainous scenery and beautiful sea birds.
