13 miles from Serendipity Beach
Saracen is a heart-shaped east-facing bay on Koh Rong Samloem, providing great shelter in the southwest monsoon. Anchor in 5-8 metres off the jetty in the northwest of the bay.
The road from the jetty takes you north to the small fishing village of M’Pei Bei (‘Bay 23’ in Khmer). The village and some excellent beaches are tucked into the shelter behind Koh Kon. M’Pay Bay Bungalows, Ecosea and Island divers are all located here.
South Bay now has over 40 bungalows and resorts where anchorage can be found off the long beach in 4-6 metres. The resorts are rustic and not well constructed, but all welcome visiting yachts.
While every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in this book is accurate, the charts of anchorages are based on personal experience and satellite imagery and are intended as a guide only.
