They are open without permission, 20-30 islands really breathtaking. The Myeik migration became more relaxing in late 2014 and when you went down the landing stages to the migration bureau and asked if you would let a full days for Kala and Kadan Islands (sometimes even further a field), these islands are enormous and if you leave the other side of them, you get beautiful sandy shores and good depth.
Dawei peninsular also boasts memorable and in many cases better than the islands, and don't forget to keep them as nice as when you arrive, taking your garbage with you and respect the locals, as they are the real jewel of the area.
