Myanmar Beach Destinations
Ricardo: Hi Tourism-Myanmar.com! I read lots about Bagan, Mandalay and Yangon, however I am very interested in going to beach destinations in Myanmar. When would be the best time of the year for me to visit your beach resorts? What and where are the beach destinations in Myanmar ?
PKTan: Hi Ricardo. Myanmar monsoon season is between July to September, thus best time to go to Myanmar beaches is between November and April. The peak season is normally during November until middle of January, while the low season starts around May until mid October. The weather in the beach areas during the very dry and sunny season can reach up to 30°C and a bit above during the day. However, in the evening, the wind from the sea can be quite chilly, reaching as low as 15°C.
The beaches with easy access are mainly on the west coast at the Bay of Bengal . Beach destinations from the south to north: New Saung, Chaungtha, Kanthaya, Ngapali Beach (most popular and pristine water!). There are also a few other resorts opening soon in southern Myanmar , such as Maungmagan at the Andaman Sea . This area and the Myeik Archipelago are still not easily accessible, nevertheless, very pristine resort areas!
