Ngapali Beach

An unspoilt, sleepy beach holiday destination situated in the Bay of Bengal, with its white sand and crystal clear water, Ngapali Beach awaits the world to discover. It is a place where time stands still, allowing you to simply "switch off" and recharge your batteries.

Activities in Ngapali Beach


  • Go line fishing and/or snorkelling on touring boats.
  • Play a game of 9 hole golf at the nearby Ngapali Golf course, maybe competing with the local golfers.
    (Be warned, they are pretty good!)
  • Go sight-seeing along the Thandwe River and visit elephant camp
  • Go trekking and enjoy the spectacular view of Ngapali Beach
  • Visit 3 famous pagodas (The Sandaw, The Nandaw, and The Anndaw) and the standing Buddha
  • Go out on an early mornings bicycle tour around the surrounding villages, morning markets or along the entire Ngapali beach, sampling the local way of life.


Local fishermen are experts in catching fish in the traditional way, going out in their canoe-like small boats every day to bring the day's catch to be served at local restaurants. Some restaurants keep live lobsters. Some even do sushi and sashimi next to authentic Rakhine and Myanmar cuisine.

Enjoy the sunset at the beach


Experience the exquisite sunsets at the end of the day in this paradise. Sunsets over the Bay of Bengal is invariably a time to appreciate and celebrate mother nature's gifts over a glass of cold beer, cocktail or whatever takes your fancy.
