Ngapali Beach

A fascinating 4 day visit to Burma's unspoilt coast line

Take a break at spectacular Ngapali

A stay in a beachside resort at Ngapali Beach is one of our suggestions for some quality ‘R and R’ time after your Burma tour.

Ngapali, (some claim it was named by an Italian sea captain as it reminded him of the Bay of Naples), is the beach area close to the old port town of Thandwe, (formerly Sandoway in colonial times) which lies in northwest Burma’s Rakhine State and is reached by a short domestic flight from Yangon Airport. (Return transfer from Thandwe Airport to our resort is included, as are return flights.)

Of course, Burma being Burma there’s a lot more to a beach extension than lying by the pool with a pina colada or admiring the turquoise waters of the Bay of Bengal and more active options include exploring the area by foot or bicycle, visiting a local fishing village, a nature hike in Ngapali Forest Reserve, checking out some of the area’s cottage industries and handicrafts as well as snorkelling and scuba-diving activities. Last but not least there’s of course, the wonderful local dishes and seafood to be sampled in beachside cafes, (Most of these activities can be self-guided or easily arranged with reception staff at the resort once you’ve settled in.)

A wonderful visit to Burma’s unspoilt coastline combines all the elements of a picturesque beach stay in pool-side chalets at the comfortable Thande Beach Resort with all the facets of traditional rural Burmese life.

With return flights from Yangon our Ngapali Beach extension is suitable for any of our Burma (Myanmar) tours, all of which finish at the country’s principal international airport.
