You immediately recognize it as you turn the oceanside bend into Kep. There's also a cool walkway out into the water with another statue just behind it. Lots of little vendors selling food, trinkets and drinks on the way.

Not much to review...This giant statue sits a few hundred metres from kep beach in the sea...When we were here it had a giant banner on it saying "keep kep clean in 2016" something not everybody has done. Anyone coming to kep will no doubt drive past and smile if nothing else ...It's a good land mark thou as shown... More

A very kitsch statue in the ocean off the coast road. If you pass it and see it, fine. Don't go out of your way to see it.

Well, it's a crab statue. It's fine, but only if you're going to Kep anyway. I wouldn't go out of my way to see it!

Nice and big Crab in the sea with beauty environment. Keep just a minute to take a picture with peaceful environment.

Wow! I just saw the biggest crab in my life! I set off at 5 am to watch the sun rising by the crab statue. This really is a must see. I recommend that you go early to beat the crowds.

You don't need to make a special trip to see this giant crab statue 50 yards offshore (installed in 2012, I believe), as you'll probably pass it on the coast road on your way into the centre of town. It's barely a mile or so east of the beach, nearly half-way to the ferry pier. (It's curious that they chose... More

Don't go out of your way to go and see this. Looks like a cheesy advertising idea you would find outside of 'Crab capital of the USA'

One of the better statues around Kampot province. Good advertising for the crab market, and not a signpost statue as the others in Cambodia.
