A beautiful wooded island just offshore from Kep, Koh Tonsay, or Rabbit Island, is so called because its profile is said to resemble that of a rabbit. The island is inhabited by around 200 people who make a living by fishing and harvesting coconuts and sea- weed (for Chinese cosmetics). It is possible to walk around the entire island in just a couple of hours.
The main attraction here is a lovely sheltered beach with a narrow strip of golden sand and great swimming. There are about half a dozen bungalow operations in Koh Tonsay, all offering similar, simple wood-and-thatch huts, most without ensuite facilities. Several of them have restaurants with well-stocked bars. Visitors can also make trips to the islands of Koh Pos and Koh Svai nearby.
