Burma's Beaches

Ngwe Saung or Ngapali

As well as being a unique touring destination, Burma offers some of the best beaches in Asia. Miles of golden sands washed by the warm waters of the Bay of Bengal, virtually undiscovered by western tourists and ideal for a few days of relaxation after exploring the country's cultural attractions.

Ngapali beach

Myanmar's premier beach resort is reached by a one hour flight from Yangon or Heho. Offering crystal clear waters and a palm-fringed beaches, despite its growing popularity, the resort retains its fishing-village roots. 

Fly into Thandwe and transfer to your beachfront hotel where the duration of your stay is at leisure to enjoy the unspoiled beach. Away from the beach you may like to explore the fishing villages where locals bring in the catch of day or take a snorkeling trip to nearby Pearl Island where brightly coloured fish abound. Sunsets can be spectacular and provide the perfect end to a great day.

3 night Ngapali Beach Explorer from £369 including flight from Yangon or Heho


Ngwe Saung

A six hour drive west of Yangon, Ngwe Saung has a long white sandy beach and a number of interesting excursions to nearby islands. 

Depart Yangon and travel through the fertile Ayeyarwady Delta region making a stop in the thriving port town of Pathein. Observe local life along the river front and at the vibrant market, before visiting one of the surrounding villages that are well known for producing colourful, hand-painted umbrellas. Continue your journey to the coast arriving at your hotel in the late afternoon.

Your time over the next few days will be at leisure to enjoy the resort facilities and unspoilt beach but should you wish to venture further afield, snorkeling trips to nearby Bird Island are available as well as hiring a bicycle to explore the surrounding countryside and villages. Evening time presents the perfect opportunity to dine in one of the quaint local restaurants that abound in the heart of the village.
