A new beach destination, Ngwesaung was opened in 2000. To get there, it takes about 5-6hrs driving time from Yangon.
The beach stretches out 15km over the Bay of Bengal. Transparent water, varieties of seafood, sunset over the horizon, exploring nearby unspoiled islands, a stopover at an elephant camp, etc., Ngwesaung is a secular paradise. And, it is more than a beach.
