The Ngwe Saung is the alternatives to Chaung Tha Strand, which is just as beautiful but has a more down-to-earth atmosphere - it is more populair. Kanthaya, or'Pleasant Beach', is mostly undetected. It is not as demanding as Ngapali or as approachable as Ngwe Saung. It' s an eight hour drive from Yangon to Gwa and Kanthaya, past small seaside cities with long palm-fringed beaches.
In Kanthaya you find a simple lodging with practically no other foreigner, therefore this place is the ultimative privatebeach. Meik is every diver's fantasy.
