Koh Tonsay (Rabbit Island)
Koh Tonsay, also known as Rabbit Island, is a small island located off the coast of Kep, Cambodia. The island is known for its pristine beaches, crystal clear waters, and laid-back atmosphere.
Koh Tonsay is a popular destination for day trips from Kep or overnight stays. Visitors can enjoy swimming, sunbathing, and relaxing on the beach, as well as snorkeling, kayaking, and exploring the island's lush vegetation.
The island has a small number of bungalows and guesthouses for those who want to spend the night, as well as a few restaurants serving fresh seafood and other local dishes.
To reach Koh Tonsay, visitors can take a short boat ride from the Kep pier. Boat tours are also available from other nearby towns, such as Kampot and Sihanoukville.
Here are the steps to get there:
Take a tuk-tuk or motorbike to the Kep Crab Market, which is located in the center of town.
From the crab market, head towards the pier. There are two piers in Kep - one for tourists and one for locals. Make sure to go to the tourist pier, which is located on the right side of the crab market.
At the pier, you can buy tickets for the boat to Koh Tonsay. The boat trip takes about 20-30 minutes, depending on the weather and sea conditions.
Once you arrive at Koh Tonsay, you can hire a small boat to take you to the beach on the other side of the island, where you'll find bungalows and restaurants.
Enjoy your time on the island! You can swim, sunbathe, hike, and explore the local fishing village. There are also a few small shops selling snacks, drinks, and souvenirs.
When you're ready to leave, head back to the pier and take a boat back to Kep.
Note: Boat schedules and prices may vary depending on the season and weather conditions. It's always a good idea to check with your hotel or a local travel agency for the latest information.
