The Most Beautiful Beaches and Resorts in Myanmar
If there is something similar between Myanmar, Koh Samui, and Fiji – it is the untouched beauty of their splendid coastlines! Why spend a fortune in other beach holiday destinations, when you can enjoy the sun, the sand, and the sea for less than half of what you would spend elsewhere? Like the tag-line of a major commercial brochure puts it: Come here to Myanmar, spend time on the beach, and we guarantee you would want to do it again next summer! Indeed, brace yourselves for a fun time along the 2.000 km Myanmar coastline studded with beaches and beaches and more beaches…
Located in close proximity to Yangon, the Kanthayar Beach is a recently launched beach resort in Myanmar with a vast array of turquoise waters and bamboo groves in the vicinity. It is undergoing development and if you hurry and manage to include this beach to your travel itinerary this summer, you could be one of the fortunate few to view the Kanthayar Beach in its virgin form.
The Kanthayar Resort is a lush facility that undertakes regular boating, yachting and other seafaring expeditions to small islands in the vicinity. Out in the deep sea, you can snorkel and scuba dive to your heart’s content if you book a package with the Resort. The facilities are quite expensive but then the experience is completely worth every penny.
Located within an hour’s drive from Kanthayar Beach, the Ngapalli Beach is another pristine and beautiful beach for you to explore in Myanmar. There are hundreds of tiny fishing communities that live on the shores of the various tiny coves that constitute the large expanse of the Ngapalli Beach that stretches out to the Indian Ocean. If you want to enjoy a day in the lap of nature all by yourself, Ngapalli Beach is your best bet in Myanmar.
The Ngapalli Beach Resort is a beautiful place to stay while you are holidaying in Myanmar. The facilities here equal those in premier holiday locations and you are treated to many vacations into the mainland and several beach trips out into the ocean too. Truly speaking, the Ngapalli Beach Resort is the right place to stay put if you would like to be away from the madding crowds of the city.
Located in Southern Myanmar, the Setse Beach is one of the most prominent and yet the most untouched beach you can hope to visit while you are here. The fringes of the beach are covered with casuarinas trees and other flowering plants. There are excellent seafood shanties located near the beach. The Setse Beach is one of the very few beaches in Myanmar that permit sunbathing, but then, you would need to be covered in at least a two-piece.
Since the Setse Beach is hugely commercial, there is a plethora of resorts that you can find near the beachside. Starting from the Mother Land Inn, the Ocean Pearl Inn, the E. F. R. Seconda Casa Beach Resort, the Bay of Bengal Resort, the Classic Inn, and several others, you have a wide variety to choose from. Since most travellers from abroad choose to stay at Setse, you will have good company here too, while you vacation in Myanmar.
Tourists flock to the fabulous Maungmagan Beach simply to catch an eyeful of the fishermen who venture out into the sea with their boats early in the morning. That done, they lay around in the sun hoping to have a tan that will last them all winter and sampling some delectable coconut juice. Not many venture into the waters of the Maungmagan Beach simply because it is too deep, but if you are an expert swimmer, you can hope for an excellent swim in the ocean too.
The Maungmagan Beach Resort is a great place to stay if you are looking to live around the pretty surroundings of the beautiful beach. The rooms are basic and yet, they are neat and affordable. Besides, the Resort has good complimentary breakfast buffets served too. There are several ‘Tour Myanmar’ packages available at the resort so hopefully, after booking a room here, you would not need to worry about being able to tour around.
Ngwe Saung Beach
Also called the Silver Beach, the Ngwe Saung Beach is a lovely beach replete with silver sands, and beautiful plantains that adorn the cobalt-blue waters of the Indian Ocean. Fairly large and extremely un-spoilt in nature, the Silver Beach (also called the Ngwe Saung Beach) is a fabulous place to spend a weekend getaway in peace.
The Ngwe Saung Beach Resort operates most of the water sports on the beach. You are offered tours to the nearby towns and cities of Myanmar. Serving you in true Myanmar hospitality, the Ngwe Saung Resort is a lovely place for you to consider living. The Resort has healthy accommodations for budget travelers too, and thus, is one of the top favorites as far as foreign nationals are concerned.
Located in close proximity from Yangon, over a less than three hour drive through the wilderness, Letkokon Beach is a truly magnificent beach for you to consider visiting (and possibly staying too). This is another beach where there are no clothing restrictions and you can sun bath under the coconut trees to your heart’s content. The tranquil milieu, the verdant landscaping and the sun-kissed beach front makes the Letkokon Beach a truly mesmerizing spot for you to explore in Myanmar.
The Letkokon Beach Hotel is the lone resort that serves the Letkokon Beach. You have surfing and scuba diving activities provided as a holiday package by the hotel. They have tourism schedules around Myanmar too. Their rooms range from being economical to being too pricey, in which case you can choose the best facilities within your budget. Its proximity to Yangon adds to its popularity.
The beaches in Myanmar are pristine and unpolluted. If you plan a beach vacation to this glorious island, you will be one among the fortunate people to have seen Myanmar’s 2.000 km coastline in its virgin glory.
