Snake Island, off the coast of Sihanoukville, as seen from Hawaii Beach, October 2014

The following is a list of islands of Cambodia off the coast in the Gulf of Thailand (Chhoung Samut Siem). Most islands are, apart from the group of the outer islands, in relative proximity to the coast and can quickly be reached. The north-westernmost islands near and around the Koh Kong river delta (Prek Kaoh Pao) area are to a great extent engulfed in contiguous mangrove marshes and consequently hard to recognize. The list below does not include the smallest islets, which in some cases are simply named after the closest neighboring big island and/or nomenclature remains subject to debate. Some islands have two names, there are islands sharing names (2 times Koh Moul, 2 times Koh Domloung etc.) and in some cases old French names underwent "Khmerization" (e.g. Ile de Koh Sralou - Koh Sralau). Moreover, widespread individual and unchecked Romanization of Khmer writing has resulted in multiple spelling variants of the island's names. Sources, such as Geonames offer several variants. The tables below follow the region's geographic succession from north-west to south-east.[1][2]
