The Rakhine Coast of Western Myanmar presents some of the most isolated and natural settings in Myanmar. Far away from the rapid pace of change in Yangon and Mandalay, villagers continue to live here in the same way they have for hundreds of years. They live according to the rhythms of nature, fishing and harvesting coconuts. The people of Rakhine State still use ox carts with wooden wheels.

Many visitors to Myanmar come to Ngapali Beach to relax and refresh themselves. Just one hour south of Ngapali, nestled in the calm waters of St Andrew’s Bay, lays a traditional Rakhine fishing village: Maung Shwe Lay. The natural, undeveloped beauty of pristine St. Andrews Bay overwhelms the senses.

The immaculate beach arcs gently around the entire bay. Low tide reveals rock formations and clear tidal pools teeming with life while high tide brings a crescent of water up to within a few yards of the tree line. Just beyond the white sands, behind the tree line, lie the houses and lanes of Maung Shwe Lay.

“Beach Safari” invites you to truly get away and discover how people really live in Myanmar. We invite to join us in Maung Shwe Lay for a fun and memorable day exploring authentic village life in Myanmar and being part of our community. We hope to see you here.

“Beach Safari” is committed to socially-engaged and sustainable connections with our foreign guests. We’re dedicated to providing an authentic experience for our visitors which also supports and benefits our small community.
