by Brian Vu Mar 30, 2017
With 2 thousand kilometers of coastline, Myanmar is becoming a popular beach destination in Southeast Asia. It is a truly great place for tourists to enjoy relaxing moments on the beautiful stretches and seize the opportunity to discover and get an insight into the local culture. There are a lot of famous beaches you can choose for your wonderful journey in Burma. However, in this post I would like to recommend you 5 best beaches in Myanmar that you should not miss by any reasons.
Ngapali (said to be named after the Italian city of Naples) is known as one of the most attractive beaches in Myanmar owing to its pristine beauty. The beach is famous for beautiful pure white sand and palm tree-lined coast stretching 7 kilometers with a number of standard hotels and resorts spreading out on the seashore. Thus, it is really convenient for you to choose an enjoyable accommodation for your exciting trip.
Because of being far from Yangon, Ngapali is one of the best options for you to choose as the place for relaxation if you are tired with the bustling atmosphere in the city. It takes you 45 minutes to fly from Yangon’s airport. Ngapali gives you a big chance to enjoy lots of awesome sea sports including scuba diving, snorkeling, kayaking and golf serviced by the resorts. In addition, delicious fresh seafood of Ngapali is so diverse, which definitely makes you be impressed and wish to come back here again.
Ngwe Saung Beach
Ngwe Saung is an ideal destination for those who want to relax after a long journey or hard working days. It is located far 48km from the west of Pathein and ready to welcome visitors in March 2000. Coming to this beach, you can have a chance to enjoy the peaceful and rustic life, enjoy sunbathing and swim, communicate with the friendly local people and enjoy several delicious seafood dishes. Walking on the long white sandy shore and hearing the “song” of the sea absolutely become your memorable experiences in your Myanmar beach holidays.
One of the famous things here is the twin pagodas, which makes this beach quite different from the others. The pagodas were erected on two big rocks located on the southern of the beach. Thus, these twin pagodas are called Kyauk Maumghnama Pagoda which means brother and sister rocks. It’s good place to get the best view of the beach at the sunset.
Chaung Tha Beach
Another well-known beach in Myanmar is Chaung Tha, which is located in the north of Ngwe Saung. It is considered as one of the most attractive beaches by tourists all over the world due to its beauty and its reasonable price for the middle classes. It is quite easy for you to come to this beach from Ngwe Saung by driving along the coast. Chaung Tha beach is a nice place where is worth for you and your family spending your weekends and holidays. Here, you can relax with classic beach activities such as horse riding, cycling and inflatable rings.
Moreover, two small islands and limestone pagodas at the southern end of the beach are also available for you to explore so do not miss it. Another highlight thing in this beach is friendly and attentive staff. Both staffs and local people are willing to help you at any time you need. Chaung Tha is really a nice place with nice people.
Kanthaya Beach, also called “Pleasant Beach”, is on the Bay of Bengal in Rakhine State. With pristine and peaceful beauty as well as yellow sand mixed gravel, the beach gives you a private place to relax and enjoy comfortable life without any disturbance. There are some hotels for you to choose. And you do not have to book a hotel before coming because it is not hard to find an accommodation at Kanthaya. Moreover, you can have a new experience in the nearby villages with local fishermen. Kanthaya will satisfy you by its beautiful natural landscape and local culture characteristics.
Maungmagan Beach, 12 kilometers west of Dawei, is said to be one of the most historical beaches in Myanmar. The beach is surrounded by hills and green rolling mountains, which seems to be a majestic setting of a pristine beach. The gleaming clear water and waves crashing onto the beach will make you excited. In addition, you can also make yourself have remarkable experience with local people and their traditional culture by taking a trip on fishing boat and visit some local villages around the beach.
