Koh Tonsay (Rabbit Island) is a small island close to Kep in Cambodia.

Understand[edit]

The island is generally pretty quiet and is a gem of coastal Cambodia. All the bungalows and restaurants for tourists are at the main beach. Besides that there are only a few fisher huts scattered around the island. Development is slow, though there is now a massage shack directly on the beach. The name Rabbit Island derives from the shape of the island, not from any rabbits there.

Get in[edit]

The best beaches in Kep are on Rabbit Island.

Koh Tonsay is a 20 minute boat trip from Kep beach for around US$8-10 return if part of a tour; alternatively, get to the boat pier before 09:00 and share a $25 boat ride (to go and come back) with others (maximum 6 people). Many people just book a day trip to the island and don't stay overnight. Beware of buying a ticket in advance for specific time through various agencies. Apparently, they do not have any scheduled services. The staff will try to arrange a boat for you, but in a way, that they are doing you a favour. Any complaints about the scheduled time will make them angry, and you'll be told to complain to your agency.

Get around[edit]

As the island is very small, you can only walk around. A hike around the island takes 2-3 hours.

Do[edit][add listing]

There is not too much to do on Rabbit Island. It's all more about relaxing a bit off from the civilised world.

  • Massage There are a few massage shacks right at the main beach. For example 5$ for one hour foot massage, or 7$ for coconut oil massage.
  • Hiking There is a track around the island passing all the beaches and some fisher huts taking about 2-3 hours where you get to see some pretty nature.
  • Lonely beaches If you start the hiking trail anti-clockwise, there are soon two small lonely beaches, where you can get some solitude away from the main beach.
  • Boat Trip/Snorkeling You can book a boat tour to other nearby tiny islands including snorkeling and lunch for US$7.

Eat[edit][add listing]

There are a few 3-4 restaurants at the main beach all serving similar dishes. Portions are big, prices cheap and the seafood is extemely fresh. Country between 4$ and 5$ for big plate of fresh cooked fish or crab.

Sleep[edit][add listing]

There are a bunch of Bungalows all at the main beach where the boats arrive (US$5-10 a night). They are all very similar, the main difference being if they have a private or shared toilet and if beachfront or not. Usually they come with a mosquito net, a hammock outside and a squat toilet. Usually it is not necessary to make a reservation, just ask around for free rooms after arrival.

Sleep[edit][add listing]

There is no Internet or Wifi available, however there is good reception for mobile phones with mobile internet. Electricity is only available with power generators from 6-10pm.
