H2O to Go – Inlay Lake & Ngapali Beach
Ngapali is easily the most developed of Myanmar’s thousands of beaches, which says more about those thousands of empty beaches than it does Ngapali. It’s got a wide white sand beach with requisite swaying coconut palms and crystalline waters. Part of its charm is that it’s still very much a working beach for small fisherman, coconut farmers, and of course, massage therapists. It is not uncommon to see a bullock cart tugging along the waterline, or for that matter a massage therapist getting a lift home in one. Accommodation ranges from upper budget to luxury beachfront bungalows that are both home grown and world class. Needless to say the seafood is outrageously good, as the top seafood chefs in Burma are all here!
Now that things have opened up, when will more beaches be developed? More islands? Answer: No one seems to know! The leadership seems keen not to make the same mistakes as neighboring Thailand did by allowing unfettered growth and the problems associated. They also want to look good in the eyes ASEAN and the world by naming vast areas in the Myaik Archipelago as a national marine sanctuary, not to be exploited.
