Chaung Tha Beach
Chaung Tha Beach is the least developed of Burma’s ‘resort’ beaches, and offers the least expensive accommodation. New hotels are going up here as well, but it’s got a lot of catching up to with Ngapali or Ngwe Saung. This is definitely the beach to visit if you want the combination of a room and very few other western tourists to bump into. The main area is very busy and very Burmese, with plenty of seafood on offer, inner-tubes to rent and horses to ride. One is even painted up as a zebra! Don’t tell PETA. It’s on the same stretch of the Bay of Bengal as Ngwe Saung, which is easily accessible by road.
