11km beach on the bay of bengal

About Ngwe Saung

Flawless powdery beaches and clear turquoise waters. Ngwe Saung Beach is unrivaled in beauty and serenity, with gorgeous turquoise waters, soft sand beaches and the cool shade of coconut palms.


Ngwe Saung is the perfect haven for those looking for an unspoilt paradise escape.

For those who can tear themselves away from the art of relaxation, the clear blue waters offer excellent opportunities for snorkeling, sea kayaking, wind surfing and kite sailing. Boat excursions to nearby islands and bicycle trips to fishing villages are also available.

Similar to Ngapali Beach, development has been deliberately slow and the coastline is not overcrowded with resorts, discotheques or holiday makers. Besides the usual beach activities, explorations of the countryside offer pretty scenery. Ngwe Saung Beach is a seasonal destination, and most hotels close during the monsoon season from mid May to mid October. When open, Ngwe Saung’s flawless 15 km of beaches off the Bay of Bengal is the ideal retreat for those desiring to swim in crystal blue waters and bask in the sun in perfect tranquility.

Located approximately 270 km west of Yangon, Ngwe Saung can be reached via a 5-6 hours car journey. The ride takes guests through rural Irrawaddy Delta landscapes and small villages, river crossings and local markets. Alternatively, a 20-minute flight takes guests twice a week from Yangon to Pathein, the nearest airport, and then the rest of the brief journey by hotel shuttle bus.
