Ngapali is increasingly famed for its pristine natural environment.

With crystal clear water and a pristine 8-mile stretch of sand, Ngapali in westernmost Myanmar is an unspoiled seaside getaway of the kind coveted by international travelers.
Situated 7 kilometers from Thandwe in Rakhine State, Ngapali overlooks the Bay of Bengal and is only a 30-minute flight from Yangon.
The beach is renowned for its safety for swimming, as well as the well-preserved natural state of its ecosystem. Nestled on palm-lined shores, its fame is growing throughout Myanmar and Southeast Asia.
Its reputation as one of the best beaches in Myanmar is a draw for tourists from around the world, especially Europeans. Visitors can take boat trips to explore nearby islands with coral reefs, or see the lifestyle of local people in fishing villages.
With more flights to Thandwe airport, which is being upgraded, and a growing number of hotels, tourist numbers are on the rise.
According to the Ministry of Hotels and Tourism, measures are being taken to preserve Ngapali’s ecosystem and environment by banning taking sand from beach, destroying submerged rocks and reefs, and littering.
