This is Ngapali beach, an amazing white sand and clear blue water beach on the Bay of Bengal in the Rakhine State. It is one of the best sites in the world for diving.

This is the diving boat from Ngapali Water Sport Center that takes you from the harbour to the local dive site (1 hour trip) or to the off shore dive site (2 hours trip).

It’s a fantastic day activity. Just image yourself early in the morning in this boat, having a coffee and some fruit, and all excited for the coming dives!

Gwa is a small and rural fishing village 6 hours drive from Yangon.

Local life is based around the sea.

Gwa is characterised by a rural way of life, set against the backdrop of the coconut-lined beach.

The streets of Gwa are quiet with little traffic. Here people get around either by foot, bicycle or moped.

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.
