There is currently no official list of all Cambodian islands, so we have collected and compared various sources (maps in particular) to try and make a start, for anyone who is interested in such geographical / historical matters.

So far, we have identified roughly 64 Cambodian islands. These 64 islands fall under the administration of 4 coastal provinces. Some islands have two or more names, and there are several islands with the same name.

There are two systems for romanizing the Khmer language: The Applied IPA – International Phonetic Alphabet (e.g. Koh = island); and the UNGEGN – United Nations Group of Experts on Geographical Names (e.g. Kaôh = island).

A few small islands (and some sizeable rocks) underwent naming/renaming during the time of the French Protectorate (e.g. Ilot Veer = Veer Islet or Rocher Kusrovie = Kusrovie Rock). Some islands used to have French names which are not used anymore, although a few seem to have been ‘Khmerized’ – e.g. Ile de Kok Sralou became Koh Sralau. There are also some inconsistencies to be aware of – e.g. Ile de Cone is casually applied to Koh Goun and to Koh Rong Sanloem, while Ile du Milieu exists at least twice.

Note: Koh Tral (or Trol) (Vietnamese: Phu Quoc) and Koh Panjang (Vietnamese: Thochu Island) actually belong to Cambodia – some administrative mistakes in the 1930s resulted in the current classification.
