The Fishing Village of Gwa in Rakhine State

Deserted white sandy beach of Gwa.

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.
