BEACHES IN MYANMAR

Ngapali / ငပလီ
A quick 25 minute hop by plane from Yangon, Ngapali lies on the plane from Yangon. Ngapali lies on the Bay of Bengal and is one of the world’s most beautiful beaches. The place to go at the end of a hectic business trip or an exhausting sightseeing program - enjoy the miles of silver sand, charming beach hotels and fresh sea food.

Ngwe Saung / ေငြေဆာင္
Like Ngapali, the 12kilometers long beach lined will palm trees offers a peaceful retreat in an unspoiled environment.
Located on the Bay of Bengal, the beach is easy accessible from Yangon by car taking around 5 hours driving. It is worth to stop for a short visit in Pathein, the biggest city of the Irrawaddy Delta. The Delta area is very fertile area and the deep water port of Pathein is the most important trading for high quality rice from the delta region. Pathein is especially well known for its famous colorful bamboo umbrellas called “Pathein hti”. Ngwe Saung has become more popular since the last five years with a larger choice of resorts, mostly in Superior and Deluxe categories to offer a peaceful and relaxing holiday.

Chaung Tha
Of the three main beach resorts on Myanmar’s Bay of Bengal coast, Chaung Tha is the most down to earth, and you can find the largest number of locals on holiday here. The beach by the village itself lacks the white-sand perfection of Ngapali and Ngwe Saung, but it has several offshore islands to explore (by hired boat) and snorkel around, and offers the same delicious range of fresh seafood as its pricier rivals, as well as a busy market to explore.

Dawei
Dawei is the capital city of Tanintharyi Division in the coastal region of southern Myanmar. Dawei is a sleepy tropical town with a number of beautiful beaches in the vicinity. It has a long history of trade and features some interesting colonial architecture, with many old wooden, thatch-roofed bungalows and some brick and stucco mansions. Under British rule Dawei was known as Tavoy, and is still sometimes referred to by that name.
The Shwe Taung Zar Pagoda is the main religious site in Dawei, and is set in a charming little complex. The short walk from the centre of Dawei is also a pleasant one, following streets lined with colonial era-buildings. In the centre of town, the busy Si Pin Tharyar and Minagalar markets are worth a visit – they can be found opposite each other.
Surrounding Dawei, the most venerated pagodas are the Shin Motehti Pagoda a few miles south of the town, Shin Datweh Pagoda in the north and Shin Maw Pagoda on the Dawei promontory. A 243-foot long reclining Buddha image occupies the Lawka Tharaphu Pagoda. In the 18th Century a group of Dawei people known as Inthas or Sons of the Lake migrated to Inle to avoid the continual conflicts between the Myanmar and Thais. Thus the Inthas were appear in Inle Lake in the southern Shan State.
12 kilometres west of Dawei is Maungmagan beach, with its beautiful setting of hills rising straight up from the shoreline. There are a host of simple restaurants serving fresh seafood here and a 30 minute walk south will take you to a characterful fishing village. Most people in this region are fishermen. Thus the fishermen of Maungmagan are familiar with the majestic sea while happily carrying out fishing skillfully as their living by tradition. Boats have vital requirements for fishing at the sea. Various sizes of fishing boats are used in this region but Boatmahlay is the most useful in manageable fishing of a family. It is a small wooden boat built without any iron or steel. The smallest Boatmahlay is 18 feet long which is used for fishing within nautical 10 miles from the coast.
There are a number of stunning, untouched stretches of coastline to be discovered in the area. Whilst Maungmagan is popular and fun, it can get busy at certain times of year and the sand is not perfect. But near Dawei there are dozens of idyllic white sand beaches where you are unlikely to see another soul (other than the odd fisherman), particularly on the peninsula towards Dawei Point.

Myiek
Situated on a peninsula jutting out into the Andaman Sea, the town of Myeik has been a busy and strategically significant port for over 500 years. Previously known as Mergui (and still sometimes referred to by that name), it retains a number of colonial-era buildings on its characterful, meandering back streets. Unlike sleepy Mawlamyine, Myeik’s harbour is a hive of activity, with hundreds of fishing boats of differing sizes arriving and departing from their work in the vast Myeik Archipelago, which can be found stretching far out to the south and west. Most of these islands can only be accessed by foreigners on organised tours, which sail from Myeik and Kaw Thaung.
Myeik’s night market at the southern end of Strand Road, and at its northern end you will find Shwe Yar Su restaurant, which offers great food, fantastic service and a vibrant atmosphere.
The Theindawgyi Pagoda, located on a hill in the center of Myeik, offers lovely views across the town and harbour. If you walk north from here along Bogyoke Road as far as Mingalar Lake (20 minutes), you will find Myeik’s market; clock tower; a number of charming colonial-era buildings; and a fire station with old fire trucks.
The gorgeous and remote Myeik (or Mergui) Archipelago lies in the Andaman Sea off the coast of southern Myanmar. To visit these extraordinary islands who will need to join a guided tour and they remain largely undiscovered by tourists – which is a big part of their appeal (indeed many of them are inhabited only by a vast array of wildlife).
Made up of more than 800 islands which vary in size from smaller ones with just a few palm trees to larger islands of several hundred square kilometers, the archipelago offers great opportunities for exploration and diving amongst spectacular marine life and untouched coral reefs, with yachts and cruise boats designed for that purpose.
It is not just the scenery (under water or over water) that makes the Myeik Archipelago such a fascinating place to visit: the Moken people, also known as the Salone or sea gypsies, are one of the most distinct of Myanmar’s many ethnic groups, living a nomadic, sea-based life here. Having adapted themselves to the water over many hundreds of years, they are the masters of free diving, being able to focus their vision under water and hold their breath far longer than most humans can.
There are far too many islands in the archipelago to describe (and many have never been set foot on by foreigners), the best will be to come and visit them…

Kaw Thaung
Kawthaung (known in colonial times as Victoria Point), is Myanmar’s southernmost town. An important trading point, many people make the 20-minute trip across the water from the Thai border town of Ranong for a visa run or a bit of sightseeing and shopping.
The focus of Kaw Thaung is its waterfront. Tourists arriving from Thailand are often struck by the relaxed pace of the town; after Phuket’s heady atmosphere. The nearby Maliwun waterfall is a lovely spot which is worth a visit if you have the time; you can swim there, and it has a small water park with slides. It is located 24km from Kaw Thaung. You can go by taxi or motorbike.
Despite its waterside setting, Kaw Thaung itself is not a particularly beautiful town – but it is an interesting and culturally varied place to wander around, with strong Indian and Muslim influences. Stores, restaurants and teashops provide ample diversion for tourists, and boat trips along Myanmar’s picture-postcard southern coast can be arranged.

Increasingly, tourists are opting to fly in from Yangon and start their tour of Myanmar’s far south at Kaw Thaung. A number of passenger boats now make the week-long journey north from here to Myeik, passing through the unspoiled Mergui Archipelago en route.
These 800+ islands are a last-of-their-kind paradise, hosting an amazing variety of flora and fauna. They were only opened to tourists in 1997 and are still considered virgin territory. Their abundance of marine life attracts seasoned divers and passing tourists alike.
Kawthaung is beginning to attract visitors for all the right reasons. Whatever the shape of your journey in Southern Myanmar, this place will tick all the boxes.
