Its creeks are alpine brooks only a few kilometres from the shore; the estuary of the Khwa River provides a good anchoring site for ships with a draft of 9 to 10ft.
The Ngapali Beaches (7 km from Thandwe, 45 minutes by plane from Yangon) is a wonderful, uncultivated stretch of land that extends for about three kilometres in the municipality of Thandwe in the state of Rakhine. It' probably Myanmar's most favourite sea resort. Nowadays Ngapali is known for its untouched and unspoilt nature. It has a smooth sandy bottom with lots of cocos.
Ngapali is said to have been called after Naples, Italy, by a homeless Italians. It' a nice place for sun bathing and leisure pursuits such as walks on the beaches, biking and so on. In contrast to other beloved beaches in Asia, it is free of tumultuous beaches in the city, masses of people and intrusive traders. It'?s a clear shore.
They are shipped to Yangon and across the world. This is the best period to explore this sandy area from October to May. It is not a small sandy area, but a row of beaches with small fishermen's towns that extend from Mazin, where the airfield is situated, to Lontha on Mayo Bay, where the coasters moor in a shelter.
There is a small twisty asphalt track that winds about 20 kilometres along the Mazin to Lontha coastline, running through the town of Ngapali, Shwewa Gyaing, Myabyin, Lontha and several other small towns located between the beaches and the coastal hill. There is a course next to the street near the Ngapali town.
Mandalay Air and the Myanmar Airways administration operate flights to Ngapali on alternating weekdays. There is a calm sea in the hill behind the Strand Beach Hotel, which is actually a dam with water of the sea, where you can go fishing but not swimming. Pony rides are available on the beaches.
Motorized fishermen' yachts can be rented for excursions to some of the islands off the shore or simply for angling near the shore. A number of travellers like to travel on Trishaw's, which is driven by locals with two back passenger seating on the side. a 18-hole course in Ngapali.
Ngapali Strand Beach Hotel has forty-four one-storey chalets with two bedrooms and baths in each of them. The Kyaukpyu (400 km SE of Yangon) is a city in the west of Myanmar on the Bengal Gulf shore. Situated in the Combermere Bay in the southern part of the city, Ramree is a small port that links the travel industry between Calcutta and Yangon.
The Kyaukphyu area is located in the state of Rakhine in Untermyanmar. Located on the east shore of the Bay of Bengal. Ramree and Cheduba with many others in the southern part, off the Thandveh. The Kanthaya Beach Spa (about 200 kilometres from Yangon and 100 kilometres from Ngapali ) is developing into Myanmar's most advanced area.
This 4000 foot long sandy spot has gorgeous clear sea, palms and silvery sands. There is a course and a resorts with costly bungalows under construction. Cantthayar means "Pleasant beach". "It is situated in the state of Rakkhine (Arakan) about 16 leagues due to the small city of Gwa.
Kanthayar, like its more prominent neighbour Ngapali 65 leagues further to the North, was created with the proactive cooperation and help of the Tatmadaw, the Myanmar armed forces. From a tranquil fishermen's town, Ngapali became a favourite seaside town during the reign of the armed forces in the 1950'.
Kantayar was "found" on the instigation of the commander of the Western Command, whose headquarters are located in Sittwe (Akyab) further on the same coastline to the south. The Kanthayar Beach Resort was opened by Lt-Gen in 1995. You can reach Kanthayar by road from Yangon.
From Yangon via the new Bayinnaung River in West Yangon to the new borough of Thayar, it is only an hour's ride to Nyaungdon, where the Irrawaddy River has to be crossed by the Irrawaddy River in a 45-minute journey. In 1998, the third Irrawaddy-Bo Myat Tun bridge, which connects Nyaungdon and Setkaw, was to be finished to shorten the journey and facilitate a trip to the cities of the Irrawaddy Delta and the Rakkhine Coast, where Kanthaya is in.
Shortly after abandoning Nga-thaing Gyaung, the highway rises over the south end of the Rakkhine Yoma crest for about 47 nautical mile until it descends to the seaside city and Gwa Fishery Centre in Rakkhine State. Coming from Gwa, the highway leads along the beautiful coastline between the ocean and the crest of a hill, about half an hours to the north, until Kanthayar is arrived.
All in all it is about 125 kilometres from Yangon to Kanthayar, and the highway is quite good, as it is extended every year. Landscapes range from low rice fields, ponds and streams, across hilly areas and woods, to the sea and sand beaches, some of which are bordered by small islands.
If you are looking for adventure, there is an alternate way to Kanthayar, which is combined with a trip to the famous bathing town of Ngapali. You can fly by plane from Yangon to Thandwe or Sandoway in about half an hours and rent a vehicle from there to get to Kanthayar, a three-hour cruise along the entire coastline.

Myanmar's other beaches are Letkhokekon Beach (Kungyangon Township, Yangon Division), Setse Beach (Mudon Township, Mon State) and Maungmagan Beach (Launglon Township, Taninthayi Division).

Most of the time, according to prevailing meteorological conditions, fishers go out to the open ocean at dusk and come back to their villages after having caught a large enough amount of them. Kettabaung Ngakunshut (mackerel) and Ngaleikkyauk are available for sale at the maung magan fishmarket in the mornings.
