Stretching over 3km of white sandy coast, Ngapali Beach is the truly amazing paradise. Located in Rakhine State, the place is close to a small town of Thandwe, a direct flight from Yangon, unspoiled and isolated by a mountain range.
Walking along a series of palm trees on the white sands, swimming in clear blue-green waves, and chilling inside a small hub, this magical paradise is no doubt by far the best beach in Myanmar. Read a favourite book while deliciously treat for natural tanning session, Ngapali is the perfect way to relax and chill out. The nearby islands are also worth visiting for a day-out to explore unspoiled villages, encounter with locals, and enjoy snorkeling.
Ngapali sunset is unarguably one of the most spectacular scenes in South East Asia. The silver coloured popular mermaid statue overlooking the sea is the symbol of the beach since colonial era. Surfing over the high waves also offers unforgettable memory for experienced surf lovers. It is the perfect place to wind down after an adventurous trip exploring the far flung sights of the country.
