In search of a secluded and quiet beach retreat for your Kep holiday? Then Angkul Beach, also known as the Secret Beach, is perfect for you with its lovely 2 kilometre long, white, sandy, and secluded beach.
Angkul Beach is a little charming beach with a small fishing village. This secret beach is not frequented by many visitors, making it a perfect spot to unwind on hammocks or deck chairs, sunbathe, swim, and snorkel. After a fun and exhausting day at the beach, you can enjoy a stunning view of the fiery sun disappearing into the ocean.
