as long as one does not look with open eyes it appears very beautiful and most stunning beach. But the villagers defaecate directlz into the bay abnd all the waste is dumped into the near by bay.
I feel one should not support such lack of waste management of expensive hotels in deprived areas, which will make the conditiond of the natives even worse. They have the means to help, if forced
Not yet a busy tourist attraction. You can enjoy the sea. Go fishing. Visit the moutains. Or just lay on the beach and listen to the waves.
We could only find one ATM in the local area and it only worked part of the time. Make sure to bring money with you.
They accept american dollars but they have to be absolutely perfect.
Pristine stretch of white sand beach and beautiful blue waters, however not as clear if compared to the Maldives or other popular beaches in Thailand/ Philippines.
Go for a gourmet experience of super fresh seafood selection, however shopping and nightlife entertainment sorely lacking. Once in a lifetime experience, visual treat and trip, however may not be returning again. Few resort options, not very valued for money and few attractions/ activities offerings on the island.
I almost don't want to write about how great Ngapali beach is because part of the charm is how few other people are there.
We went in mid-December which is the high season and by staying at a resort a bit outside the main area we had an entire stretch of beach almost entirely to ourselves. The food is good, the beer is cold, and the people of Myanmar couldn't be friendlier.
Ngapali was a fun place to visit in that it offered a glimpse into the lives of the people living there.
The atmosphere is slow-paced and laid back making it a great place to relax & recharge one's batteries. The little stores, long beaches & many restaurants offer sufficient diversion for when one is tired of lying on the beach & reading or swimming in the very welcoming sea. The beach South of Lin Tha village is definitely busier & has more to offer the traveller. I would highly recommend the Lonely Planet Guide book.
The beach is very nice and clean, but there is nothing to do outside your hotel, except to try out a few small family restaurants.
Höll på att göra ny huvudväg så det var ganska dammigt utmed vägen.Inga gatlampor så man gick ej ut på vägen kvällstid.
Ingen shopping runt hotellet som var kanon.Fiskebyarna gjorde det hela pittoreskt.
It is worth to rent a bike and visit whole beach, to hire a boat and visit the island close to the beach.
Fantastic, very cheap seafood restaurants on the beach (turn right from the Thande Beach Hotel). Fruit sellers on the beach off great freshly prepared fruit including pineapples, papayas and coconuts.
Nothing to do, really. But it is actually good for relaxing in silence and laziness. You need to go there out of a season, because there are no tourist there.
In the season place is crowded as any other beaches in exmpl. in Thailand where you have plenty of attractions and stuff to do. And in Ngapali there are about 4 huge resorts being built now, so this place is good to go for next year, but no further because of heaving tourist flow.
One of the best beach resort areas I've visited. Not as developed as most but there are quite a few very comfortable and luxurious resorts.
Nice fishing village, there were a lot of fish scattered on the beach and rice fields to dry. Local said dry season was for fishing and drying fish.
While wet season was for planting rice. Simple quaint lifestyle so good for photos.
It is a small resort area with some local restaurants. We only left our Resort one day for a brief bike ride down a mostly paved road to the nearest litlle village.
We had a delicious meal and found a beautiful art gallery belonging to a very accomplished artist. It was a lazy fun trip.
For travelers wishing for a quiet time on the beach. Ngapali is highly recommended. Prices for hotels are still on the expensive side due to lack of supply, but this will change soon as there are already a few new projects in the works.
We stayed mostly within our resort and walked the beach and swam a lot for 4 days. Went for short distance to outside nearby eatery on the road and also evening dinning at a top restaurant of Napoli area via our hotel van service.
.So we did not get to cover much of the City itself. But we did not go around city much.
A gloriously quiet and simple beach destination frequented mostly by Europeans, where you can eat freshly caught seafood on the beach under a palm-leaf umbrella, washed down with some excellent Myanmar beer, all for under $20 for two.
The infrastructure of the area is still being developed, so expect terrible roads and erratic internet connections. But if a simple seaside holiday is what you're after, it's great.
Hotel was so nice and relaxing that we did not much feel like moving from our lounge chairs on the beach most of the time.
There is however a string of small shops and restaurants essentialy outside the hotel if you want to explore something different.
An emerging tourist area still developing. Fantastic clean beaches and crystal clear water. Sunsets are amazing, a wonderfully romantic spot and safe for children.
