Things have not improved since our last visit. Ochheuteal Beach is about a mile long, stretching south (looking left) from the boat pier. It's broadly in four sections: first, numerous beach front bars and restaurants of varying quality (popular/noisy/lively/busy); second, small snack huts/tables; then a clear tree-lined section (very quiet); and finally at the far end a few bars/restaurants (peaceful)...

It is dirty, dusty, full of shacks and esaurats hat don't inspire any trust. There was a sewer on the beach, that says it all. To avoid by all means.

Beach looks great from a distance but as you get closer you start to see all the rubbish on the sand and in the sea. The sea also seems dirty and polluted, lasted a couple of minutes in there and decided it was best to get out. Otres beach is a short walk over the headland - much cleaner and... More

The beach was very very dirty, there was a mountain of trash and a small pond of polluted water with children playing around right on the beach. Plastic bottles and boxes everywhere. I'm afraid that the water isn't safe to swim in. They really need to do something if they want more tourists coming in.

Beach isnt as good as Otres, but still pretty great. A fwe more bottle caps and cig butts in the sand... Predominantly locals the day we went, lots of kids and families. More massage/threading/bracelet offers, but could be because there weren't many tourists of spread it out.

It's crowded. It's busy. It's noisy. It's dirty. Sure, the beach bars and restaurants are ok, but you're constantly harassed by beggars, kids selling trinkets and women offering massage and manicures. The very southern end of the beach is quieter but the whole place needs an urgent clean up and some strategically located bins. You're better off at Otres Beach.

I must first point out that this is a very popular beach. However, I’m not exactly sure what attracts people to this place; the restaurants and bars or the actual beach. Despite its popularity, we never really felt comfortable here. The beach itself is dirty with a lot of litter, there are hawkers trying to sell you all sorts of... More

Nice to stroll alobg and always busy. We were lucky to experience it during a Cambodian national holiday and all the seafront cafes were full of familiy groups feasting and drinking which seamed to be over by 1pm followed by a snooze. Street vendors sold all manner of food from delicious squid bbq on sticks to passion fruits to cooked... More
