We stopped here briefly as part of a tour and swam in the very clean warm water. Not crowded at all, the beach was a lot better than we expected and saw no rubbish.

Go to Otres Beach instead. Serendipity beach is one of the worst beaches I have been to. It is incredibly overcrowded with people, garbage and persistent Hawkers.

I went here back in 2011 before it was dirty and polluted and it was still bad. There are people coming up to you every 2 minutes begging you relentlessly to buy something from them. It's sad and difficult to relax. Way too crowded as well. I will say that there were some freaky waves last time I visited. It... More

We visited here 5 years ago and so disappointed on our return - the water is polluted and there is black bin liners full of rubbish left all over the beach, what more can I say, so disappointed.

A very average, noisy and crowded beach with average restaurants lining it. Only good thing is the abundance of tuk-tuk drivers who will take you anywhere within Sihanoukville.

Serendipity is a backpackers haven. Food and booze is cheap and there are a lot of young backpackers and locals. At night the place looks like a fair by the beach. Restaurants compete for attention by playing music and personally inviting tourists. On a holiday the beach is packed by locals. My fave activity here is to have tropical drinks... More
