Ngapali Beach Holidays

Renowned as Myanmar's premier beach resort, Ngapali is located on the Bay of Bengal coast and features an idyllic stretch of white sand lapped by deep blue water stretching as far as the eye can see.

Pronounced Napally and said to be named after the Italian city of Naples, Ngapali maintains a charming fishing-village vibe as despite something of a construction boom, only a handful of hotels and resorts are spread across more than 15 miles of coast. The soft white sands are fringed with palm trees and lead down to the clear blue waters where traditional fishing boats bob around offshore.

Should you tire of lounging on the beach, a colourful underwater world awaits your exploration or alternatively, trips to nearby small islands can be arranged. On land, there's a 9 hole golf course, or you may opt to hire a bicycle and join the local traffic of ox drawn carts and cycles to visit the numerous fishing villages where the way of life has remained largely unchanged for generations.

In the nearby small town of Thandwe there are three modest stupas which offer fantastic views over the area while at its thriving market all manner of regional produce, clothes and locally-produced handicrafts can be purchased.

Dining options at the beachside hotels and resorts include Asian and western food, while local beach restaurants serve up wonderfully fresh seafood allowing you to dine with sand between your toes as the sun sets over the Bay of Bengal. A word of warning though, Ngapali isn't the place for those seeking a lively nightlife, there are no discos or bars on the beach, it's simply a laid-back paradise to get away from it all in perfectly idyllic surroundings.
