Ngwe Saung Beach
Ngwe Saung Beach is known for its twin rock stupas.
It’s the second beach closest to Yangon, just a 5 hours drive. The closest one is Chaung Tha, which is very popular among locals. The most popular beach in Myanmar for foreign tourists is Ngapali, which despite being far from Yangon is serviced by regular flights.
Ngwe Saung Beach is a 15 km long beach with fine white sand and clear blue sea.
At the shore of Ngwe Saung Beach you can always find crabs working hard digging a path to their nests. As they go about their work they create hundreds of balls from the removed sand. These are placed around the entrance to the nest in a spiral shape to protect it.
