Midway between Independence and Serendipity lies Sihanoukville’s prettiest beach, 1.5km-long Sokha Beach. Its fine-crystal-like sand squeaks loudly when you walk on it. The eastern end of Sokha Beach is open to the public and rarely crowded. The rest is part of the exclusive Sokha Beach Resort. Tourists are welcome to enjoy the sand near Sokha but are expected to buy something to drink or eat. You might even duck into the resort to use the pool.
