Mawlamyine' s beaches - Myanmar Forum
In search of a beautiful place preferential beachside near Mawlamyine to stay 5 nights. Mawlamyine' s closest shore is Set Se Strand, where you can take a one-and-a-half hour outing. Wouldn't go from further northerly just for the beaches. Hi, I haven't been to the beaches just south of Yangon.
There is actually a lot of information about these two beaches that you mentioned and Chaung Tha too. However, when I drive over Pathein in October (next month!!!!) and probably spend the night there before I go to the shore, Chaung Tha for me. The Ngwe Saung is less congested than Chaung Thar with locals and cleaner.

Subsequent monarchs lifted the pit to a higher and higher position until it was 46 metres high from its initial 17 metres.
