Ngapali Beach

Things to do - general

Ngapali Beach is located in Rakhine State on the western coast of Myanmar and is nothing but stunning. It is one of the most famous and beautiful beaches in Myanmar and is a popular tourist destination.

Ngapali Beach has been promoted as one of the major tourist destinations in Myanmar. High end esorts and hotels are in Ngapali such as Bayview Ngapali, Amata Resort, Amazing Ngapali and also the government owned Anawa. The hotels and small tourism industries help to provide income for the villages around Ngapali and also Thandwe. There is also a golf course nearby.

The beach is close to Thandwe Airport. All of Myanmar’s internal airlines, Myanma Airways, Air Mandalay, Yangon Airways, Air KBZ and Air Bagan have frequent flights to Thandwe from most of their destinations.

Ngapali Beach is an ideal resort to relax after an amazing holiday to Burma. Unlike other south Asian beach resorts, Ngapali is a quiet unspoiled paradise backed with swaying coconut palm trees providing some shade whilst you watch the glorious sunsets.

Visitors can enjoy the wonderful views across the Indian Ocean in the Bay of Bengal; turquoise water lapping at the soft white sand, thatched huts dotting the beach, fisherman hauling in the catch of the day, an ox-cart may pass by on its way to somewhere else or the rich orange sunset over the ocean. It is romantic, enticing, isolated and relaxing.

One of the popularity of Ngapali is its delicious fresh seafood including fried squid, king prawns, lobster, snapper, barracuda, fish curries and much more. Most hotels have beach view restaurants that are open to everyone. There are also dozens of restaurants, as well as art and souvenir shops that lay the main road parallel to the beach.

Be aware that budget and mid-range accommodation is difficult to find in Ngapali – Ngwe Saung and Chaung Tha offer a better range of inexpensive accommodation options. The accommodation options in Ngapali beach are limited to primarily high-end resorts and hotels owned, with very few options for the budget traveller.
