The Nyaung Chaungtha beach, which emerged as a natural, sprawling beach with beautiful bathing place six years ago in Yankin San Yar Village, west of Nyaungdon Township, Ayeyawady Region, will be officially opened for this year on 23 February.
“Nyaung Chaungtha is one of the famous beaches in Myanmar. We have made some safety arrangements for visitors so they can venture into the water and it is a place with a car access to the beach. We have also fixed the entrance fees, hotel rents, and rates for chairs and food. The beach will be officially opened for this year on 23 February,” said U Aung Myo Win, the chairman of the Nyaungdon Township Municipal Committee.
“The Nyaung Chaungtha Inland beach, which was first opened in 2013, is crowded with beach-goers annually during the high season for tourism. The number of visitors who came to the beach has increased year by year.
This year, visitors can venture into the water across the 500-feet-wide flat sandbank. The township supervision committee is making arrangements to ensure the safety of visitors,” said U Aung Naing, the deputy township municipal head, who is in charge of the Nyaung Chaungtha beach supervision committee.
The committee has constructed buildings for 50 food shops to be opened around the beach. Visitors can breathe in the fresh air, go into the water, and order fresh food at the beach.
Local and foreign visitors have been coming to Nyaung Chaungtha beach as it is not costly like Chaungtha and Ngwe Hsaung beaches. Additionally, the beach can be reached in one hour by car from Yangon.
