In the port of Sihanoukville, Cambodia, one marina has been rebuilding and redesigning its facilities with yachting in mind. Now, Marina Oceania has become the country’s first true fully equipped marina. Sihanoukville is already a resort city with attractive beaches, restaurants, casinos and amenities, but Marina Oceania will give yachts up to 82 feet (25 meters) the option of pulling in for a visit as well. The capital city of Phnom Penh or the ancient Angkor temples in Siem Reap are both easily accessibly from this port. Sihanoukville is also only 10 1/2 miles from the newly built Sihanoukville Airport with flights to Siem Reap and Phnom Penh.
Cambodian waters are home to a variety of fish and marine life including the whale shark. Sites like Angkor Wat, Bayon, Taprohm and Sandstone are popular destinations for tourists, but there are also strings of nearly uninhabited islands off the coast that would make perfect retreats for a yacht. Additionally, the Water Festival in November each year is a sight to be seen. This event celebrates the yearly reversal of the Tonle Sap, which occurs when the Mekong River swells and forces it to change course, pushing up stream from the capital.
