Good beach, more lively than its neighbours but lots of hassle from people trying to sell you things. Certainly worth a visit though and some nice bars and restaurants.

Beautiful beach spoiled by the commercialisation.
If you like haggling with the foot masseuses and all the other sellers then you will feel at home. Not the place to come if you want some quiet time.
For me the most disappointing aspect was the visual pollution, but it is no different to the rest of Cambodia.
However, having said that, the water is warm and the sand is white.Even Iin the wet season there were hot days.
Plenty of choice on the beach for where to eat as the whole strip is lined with ramshackle restaurants. Meals will cost between US $3 to US $6 and beer starting at US $0.50 per glass. It is best to stay with the local food as it is fantastic. Don't order anything western or you will be disappointed. But then why go to Cambodia to eat western food.

My second trip to Sihanoukville. Ocheteaul has now turned into party central, which is unfortunate particularly for the locals as the party people are chasing away the quieter people thus running income for the beach ladies. Please don't buy from the children on the beach as their parents keep them home from school to earn money if they are successful. Please buy off the beach ladies (fruit langosteens manicure etc) as this is their only income to pay for education for their children. A polite but firm NO THANKYOU will stop most hawkers for repeatedly asking. Cambodians are generally well mannered people. Try Kaya's shack. Food and service is good.

A busy beach, music blaring, pizza menus in English, Vietnamese hawkers. I loved it as it felt comfortable after solo travel elsewhere. Cafes are not busy now, you can make a fruit shake last for hours, curl up on a comfy seat and relax watching the waves. If you like to be alone go to an island instead.

You get the young goofballs who only want to drink & party, you get the beach vendors and beggars, but none of it is as bad as plenty of other touristy beach locales. The vendors and beggars are not too pushy, the spring break types get hauled away on "party boats," and you are left to sit in a big, cushy chair with a cheap Cambodian beer, with your feet centimeters away from the water. Even in the rainy season, life is good.
