I will be travelling to Cambodia for the first time, in app. one month (March).

Where would I find the best (non-tourist) beaches in the south-west part of Cambodia?
Preferable a quiet place, far away from tourists. More an area that a backpacker would visit :)

I love the secluded areas where you meet the locals and not see shops with inflatable pool toys or postcards.
Where should I go for a lovely beach with great sand and water? Any recommendations?

Best regards,

If going for a month that's a long time. Research your visa requirements.

I couldn't take a month all by myself in Cambodia with only the locals to talk to. (With the exception if I were married to a local lady and this was her hometown. ) I can eat some Asian food but not every single meal!

I don't mind beach areas and cities where foreign tourists visit. They have more choices for hotels and a variety of places to eat and drink at. Also places where lots of tourists visit can be easier to get to. And you can usually find some cheap place to stay at if on a tight budget.

Good luck finding a beach area that is profitable with only local people supporting it.

Can't help you with a beach area without foreign tourists. Perhaps a Google search can be helpful.

"More an area that a backpacker would visit...."

You do see backpacker types in cities and at popular beach areas.
