BEACHES & RESORTS
Myanmar (Burma) is surrounded by five neighbouring countries. It is not a land-locked country because its west and south regions open into the sea. The Rakhine (Arakan) coast on Myanmar’s west faces the Bay of Bengal, and the Indian Ocean and the southern Tanintharyi (Tennisarim) coast front the emerald green Andaman Sea. Myanmar has ten major unspoiled beaches; to name a few: Ngapali, Kanthaya, Chauntha, Ngwe Saung, and Letkhokkon. Out of these, the most popular Holiday Resorts that are mostly frequented by tourists and locals alike are Chaungtha, Ngwe Saung, and Ngapali.

The 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.
