Kite surf but nice sunset
Sep 2019
I think most of the reviews are correct referring to Prea as a quite murky, windy beach designed for kite surfers. There are a couple of bars and street vendors selling souvenirs near the parking lot and not much than that. I think the most entertaining part was watching the kite surfers and the colorful sky with all the different kite coloring, patterns and shapes.

Having said that, coming with locals a day after for a drink at the sunset, I was pleasantly surprised with a delightful sunset, where the golden shades of sun mix with the shades of people and kites, creating a very unique composition, candy for the eyes. It's a different mood than Jeri for sure, but if you are planning to be a regular,

Be Warned: Kitesurfing Only

The beach itself sucks. The daily afternoon on-shore gusts make it impossible to sit and enjoy the beach as you're getting painfully sand-blasted for hours on end. The negligible options in Prea make this a one stop shop for wind sports and nothing else. The only time you can really enjoy the beach is first thing, early in the morning before the afternoon winds, or later in the evening for sunset if the wind dies down.

For kiters, this is heaven. The water is shallow, sandy bottom, smooth and relatively clean, but you better watch out for the dangerous discarded fishing gear that the locals leave laying around because they don't give one @#$% about anyone's safety.

It's too bad though that so few care about the plastic pollution on the beach. Even the pousadas there contribute to the garbage, leaving their plastic garbage bags on the beach outside their properties waiting for pickup, to be torn apart by the local dogs and birds and donkeys and scattered along the public areas. It's really despicable, this low level of care and conscience that the tourists and pousada owners exhibit here.

We came here on a tour. Took a few photos by the boat and that was it. The beach wasn’t fantastic it had gray sand. Sorry not sure what else to do here and our guide spoke very little English. There are also surrounding shops so I guess you could ask the driver to stop for water

For the kiters
Jun 2017 • Friends
this is the perfect spot for kite surfers. There's the mosquito place, next to Rancho do Peixe that provides great reliable kite gear.

Not worth it
Mar 2017 • Solo
The beach is not beautiful, has a lot of seaweed and is not suitable for bathing. Has some pretty simple restaurants for local people. Not worth stopping.
