Visiting Ngapali Beach on a journey to Burma (Myanmar)
The Ngapali Beach is a little bit of Burma, separated from the remainder of the land by a mountains. Situated on the west bank, it is a long, palm-fringed sandy beach with lush accommodation and working fishermen's camps. The unspoilt beach and the blue-green water reminds him of his favourite Naples, and the name remained unchanged.
Most of the tourists, like the Apocrypha Neapolitans, come because of the long golden sands and the clear, hot water. As Ngapali is difficult to get to, it is still largely unexplored, especially in the centre of the 24 km long beach. One can walk through the smooth sands and see only a few other men and maybe a few yachts in the faraway.
All of the hotel facilities provide aquatic activities and you can go canoeing, snorkelling or scuba dive in the light-coloured shoals of fishing. You can also explore the area by ferry and bathe on a secluded beach. Many of the properties also have an impeccably maintained promenade, as well as a luxuriant vegetation where you can spend a peaceful while.
Nightly the fishers go out in small vessels to do their business off the coast. During low water you can see folk in folk costumes walking along the water line and gathering clams. At noon the top of the beach, near the tree, is often clad with fishes.
You will also find groups of Chinese players on the sands. Out of Thandwe three gold Stupa's on the hills provide a good view of the city's canopies. Ngapali Beach is recommended to be visited between October and May. Throughout those seasons the skies are clear and the temperature is warmer. Most of the hotel are closed during the wet period (June to September) and air travel to the area becomes a drop in the ocean, making a visit almost inconceivable.
