Ngwe Saung Beach is located directly west of Yangon, also on the Bay of Bengal. Domestic airline, Air Bagan offers limited air service to the neighboring city of Pathein during peak season (please check with us for schedule). From Pathein the guest will transfer by car to the beach. The road from Pathein to Ngwe Saung beach takes a little more than an hour and the drive is rather scenic as you pass farms, then wind up into hills with tall trees, and some small valleys. Later you pass shrimp farms. The beach is around 12 kilometers long and the major hotels are located within a 7-8 kilometers stretch.
Ngwe Saung Beach is similar in quality to Ngapali Beach. Ngwe Saung Beach can also be reached by car driving from Yangon (about 5 hours). Like Ngapali, it is a quiet beach, some hotels have a few sailboats and windsurfers. It is possible to take a boat to one of the offshore islands and have a picnic. There is the possibility of scuba diving at an off shore island organized by Myanmar Treasure hotel. The quality of the diving here is fair but not world class. (Divers take note, visit Mergui Archipelago for some truly world class diving!)
