« MYANMAR LUXURY TRAVEL
Luxury trips to Myanmar that feature tropical island hopping aboard a gorgeous, air conditioned sailboat? You bet! Hearing the romantic, adventurer’s call of the last untamed tropical paradise on earth? The Myeik Archipelago off the coast of southern Burma is precisely where that ‘call’ is coming from. More than 800 islands slung across 14,000 square miles of the Andaman Sea, ranging in size from tiny dots to some the size of Singapore! Only 12 are permanently inhabited. Myanmar sailing charters offer a unique and amazing opportunity to enjoy a vast tropical paradise and have it to youselves!
Once you clear port you will see no other tourists. You will see white sand beaches backed by 150-foot trees and cacophonous jungles. You will see no human footprints on those sands, only animal tracks, if not animals themselves. If you see elephant tracks, you are on the wrong island! They don’t much like trespassers.
You will see gushing waterfalls plunging from jungle rock walls right into pools on the beach. You will visit one of the rarest tribes in the world, the Moken sea Gypsies, who live on boats and survive by fishing & hunting island to island.This virtually virgin paradise has only been open since 1997, and by ‘open’ we mean barely. Only a handful of licensed charter yachts are allowed to operate in the area.

Day 1 – We’ll meet you at the airport in Kawthaung, Myanmar, or in Ranong. It’s now possible to enter Myanmar here and not have to exit here, if your journey takes to northward after the trip. Relax on deck with a welcome cocktail (or two) while we sail toward the Myeik Archipelago! Spend the afternoon on the beach at Hastings Island. The island has a Moken “sea gypsy” village which is a very interesting visit indeed.
Day 2 – Early the next morning we will arrive at Lampi Island, the largest in the region. We will brunch on board and visit a village of Moken sea gypsies. Dinner will be a feast of fresh seafood, before sailing northwest to the gorgeous and aptly named Clara Island. The water here is indeed amazingly clear.
Day 3 – It’s a lovely cruise to Pila Island, and along the way we’ll fish for tuna. Once there, we barbeque out catch on the very long unnamed beach and go for a jungle hike along a creek and marvel at the wildlife. Before a relaxed sundowner, we cool down snorkeling in the teeming azure water.
Day 4 – We pick up the east winds and broad reach towards the Mid Group. We could spend a full week exploring its small islands, hidden coves and beaches, so we choose the the most beautiful: Frost and Potter Islands. Spectacular white beaches and huge fig trees, all to ourselves!
Day 5 – We spend most of the day on the water, only stopping for a glorious dip in the open sea. Some get busy sailing, others laze on deck and watch the dolphins or schools of bat rays jump. Dinner today on the beach at Zadetkyi Island.
Day 6 – After a lazy morning followed by long brunch, we sail back to Kawthaung and say our goodbyes. With so much more untouched wonder left to explore, we hope to see you again!
