“Serendipity” is not a common name for a beach, but Serendipity Beach is much easier to pronounce than Ochheuteal Beach. Both are leading beaches in Sihanoukville (another name that is not easy on the tongue) and once you have visited either one, you wouldn’t mind what their names are at all.
Sihanoukville is a prime tourist destination located in Southern Cambodia. It is a peninsula that is poking into the Gulf of Thailand, only a few degrees above the equator. This premier Southeast Asian beach town is known for its collection of white-sand beaches, tropical sun, warm surf, salty humid air, and an over-all lazy atmosphere that is perfect for an uneventful vacation in Paradise.
