Beautiful white sand beaches lined with coconut palms might be found elsewhere in Asia, but few are as idyllic and unpopulated as Burma’s Ngwe Saung Beach. The water is warm and, without ever suffering an influx of people or modern industry, still teeming with marine life. After a soothing swim that’ll wrest any pagoda fatigue from your mind and lull you into tropical tranquillity, watch the local fisherman pull in great arched nets of tuna right off the beach. You’ll be able to buy and eat these fish too. Lazing away at Ngwe Saung will likely be some of the most relaxing time you’ll ever spend. Absolute paradise.
