3 miles from Serendipity Beach
Anchor in 6-8 metres on a sandy bottom in front of the Victory Beach Pier. Ashore is the base of the KAMSAB in the building just over the road at the top of the small incline.
Depth at the jetty head is around 3 metres, making it possible for shoal draft vessels to tie up alongside.
We mention this location as a short stopover to clear into the country, but recently we’re told that some visiting yachts have been diverted back to clear in at Koh Kong near the Thai border. Best check online prior to visiting Cambodia by yacht.
Be careful taking your dinghy ashore here on the north side of the jetty at night because there’s a life-sized concrete buffalo half submerged in the water near the beach.
This is a relaxed beach with plenty of seafood ashore. Half a mile south is the massive bridge to the island of Koh Pous. This was built to provide access to the private island where a casino, hotel and villa developments were meant to be well underway.
Between editions of this book, Koh Pous remains undeveloped but Sihanoukville has undergone massive transformations. Air draft and depth on the bridge is not a problem for normal yachts.
