Ngapali Beach location mapSituated about 7 km away from Thandwe (Sandoway) is the pristine Ngapali Beach on the Bengal Bay. This beach is famous for its natural and unspotted beauty up to this day. The Ngapali beach stretches about 3 km with soft white sand fringed by coconut palms. It serves as the best ground for sunbathing and recreation such as beach strolling, cycling and so on. Unlike today’s beaches of Asia, it is free of noisy beachside bars, crowded people and hawkers persuading you to buy their things. There are only natural scenic beauty of the blue sea, white sand and the lovely sun.

The sea is cobalt blue, without any dangerous marine animals and clean. Actually, Ngapali is not one single beach, but a series of beaches interspersed with small fishing villages stretching from Mazin where the airport is located, to Lontha on Mayo Bay where coastal steamers dock in a sheltered anchorage. A small winding tarmac road snakes its way along the coast for about twelve miles from Mazin to Lontha, passing through Ngapali village, Shwewa Gyaing, Myabyin, Lontha and several other small villages nestling between the beaches and the hills along the coast.

The road is also being widened, from two lanes to four lanes. The airport will be extended to take bigger planes and a new terminal building has already been constructed. The relaxing is not only activities in Ngapali Beach. The more energetic tourists have options to play a round at an international 18-holes golf resort in Ngapali Beach or explore the range of hills. Once you are on the small hills you will find a peaceful lake, which is actually a reservoir with blue waters where you can fish but not swim. In the winter months this lake is the haunt of migrating water fowls, wild ducks, teals and others which come down from the far north, beyond the borders of Myanmar. Ponies are available for riding along the beaches. Fishing boats with motors can be hired for trips to some of the islands off the coast or just to fish near the reef.
