Ngapali Beach, Myanmar
Let me say this right up front….I am not a beach person. But Ngapali Beach is my idea of paradise….It’s got everything natural beaches should and none of the claptrap you find at beaches in other parts of Asia and the Americas. No bars, no jet skies, no malls, no plazas, no prostitutes….
Just miles and miles of soft white sand, a few lovely hotels here and there, lots of palm trees, azure waters and peace and quiet. There is really nothing to do here, other than enjoy the natural beauty of the place, and every now and then, go for a wonderfully fresh, delicious and surprisingly cheap meal, either at your hotel or at one of the local restaurants located outside the hotels’ gates.
Things are changing, but not too fast. There used to be 6 flights a day….now there are about 15. Where there was never a stoplight…there is one now. It is remote enough that it does not attract crowds.
Check out the photos, and if you are so inclined, start planning your trip. If you need advice, you know who to ask….
