The second largest island in Cambodia, Koh Rong is the place to visit now before the masses descend on this up and coming resort. Long Set beach is the southernmost cove of the island, so named by the locals after the farmer who lives there growing coconuts, mangoes and cashews. The white sandy beaches are peaceful and quiet at the moment and the gentle aquamarine waters are very inviting. You could waste many an hour relaxing in the sands, crabbing and looking for pretty shells. By night a rather wonderful spectacle awaits, wade out about a metre into the water and the plankton lights appear! The bio-luminescent plankton creates an ethereal phosphorescence in the water, and any movement in the water; be it gentle waves or your splashes, create a fabulous sparkly effect! Bring a mask for a close-up look.
