Painted by the long white-sand beaches and azure waters of the tropical Bay of Bengal, allow Ngapali to absorb you into the easy-going vibe that leaves one with the sense that time stopped here long ago. Enjoy a 4-day escape on The Evolved Traveler’s “Ngapali Beach Break”, and return home renewed—it is the definition of sublime and serene.

Destination Overview

Located on the Bay of Bengal in western Myanmar, Ngapali is one of the country’s best-kept secrets and its premier beach. This is no party destination; it is that beach paradise we all imagine where we leave our cares to blow in the wind and soak in a sense of ease and restoration.

After just a short flight from Yangon, you’ll soon be feeling Ngapali’s warm breeze and the sand between your toes. There is ample time to enjoy the warm waters snorkeling or take a boat with a local to one of the small islands that dot the coast. A genuinely engaging excursion on Day 3 will let you see and interact with the local community. An hour’s boat ride will take you to Maung Shwe Lay, a traditional fishing village that has retained an authentic feel that is rarely seen. Situated on St. Andrew’s Bay, the area is perfect for swimming and exploring the verdant jungle. Your guide will take you to the village’s Buddhist monastery, local houses, and a community library supported by The Evolved Traveler and our partners, the EXO Foundation. The EXO Foundation will organize some much-needed supplies for the village, which you can then donate to the village during your stay.

At midday, enjoy a home-cooked lunch, incorporating fresh seafood, rice, and noodles. Afterward, you are free to spend more time in the village, enjoy the beach, or snorkel. Return by boat to your hotel in the late afternoon.
