Koh Kong Island is the largest island of Cambodia that has a location just 22 kilometers south of Koh Kong town, which is on the mainland, and is kind of a sister city to the island. Koh Kong is 39 square miles with its length being about 12 miles and its width ranging from 3.2. to 4.5 miles. There is only one settlement on the island and that is at Alatang, a small fishing village which is on the south-east corner of the island. The population is less than 30, most of which work exclusively in the fishing industry, but some have taken to working in the tourism industry.
On the west side of the island, there are six absolutely beautiful beach areas, each of which has its own freshwater lagoon leading to rivers that get their water from the high mountain peak. These are incredible places to visit and you will love the warm waters.
