Widely regarded as Myanmar’s most beautiful beach, this is a destination with clear blue water and white sandy beach that can stand up to anything Thailand has to offer. It stretches along the Bay of Bengal in Rakhine State in western Myanmar. You can fly there from Yangon, Mandalay, and Heho.

You’ll have to dig a little deeper into your wallets for this one. The place is still under development and we are working on some cheaper options for you. In the meantime, Ngapali Beach is worth paying up.

Ngapali Bay Villas & Spa
5-star luxury hotel

The nightlife scene is still in development but the beach is beautiful. Ngwe Saung Beach is known as Silver Beach, because of its lovely long white sandy beach with clear blue water. If you like pristine beaches, this is for you

Letkokkon Beach
Letkokkon beach is the nearest beach out of Yangon and a fledgling ecotourism destination. The beach is about 15km long and is located on the eastern side of the Irrawaddy delta. It can be reached by car in about 2.5 hours on a bumpy road from Yangon. Letkokkon is an area well-known for suffering devastation during Cyclone Nargis, a tropical cyclone that occurred in 2008 and caused the worst natural disaster in Myanmar’s recorded history. The area has been rebuilding and has a lot of potential. The beach does not have the same white sands and clear blue water you see in some of the other beach destinations in Myanmar. The water is shallow and muddy especially during high tide and monsoons. But in addition to its beach attraction, the area has developing eco and adventure tours. From Yangon, it’s also your easiest option to stuff yourself with fresh seafood and tropical fruit and to sip fresh coconut milk from the plentiful coconut trees.

Not a rock bottom option in terms of price, but this is the cheapest option we have for you so far, and it’s conveniently located in the center of the action.
