Top Things to Do in Ngapali - Enjoy Pristine Beach

By Wendy Updated Sep. 7, 2023

At Ngapali Beach, sunbathing on a couch or just listening to the sound of the waves can seem like the ultimate in relaxation. But a whole variety of other activities will help make your visit even more complete.

Enjoy Your Private Beach

You can find Myanmar's most exotic resorts in Ngapali. The hotels or resorts typically face the sea and you may even see the crystal sea from your bed when you wake in the mornings. Most resorts have their own private beach, so enjoying your private beach time is one of the top things to do here.

You can sunbathe on your beach. Listening to the waves and seagulls, to the taste of a glass of fresh juice must be one of the best ways to relax. But please remember to wear sunscreen.

China Highlights, Asia Highlights, and Global Highlights collaborate to provide families and couples with personalized and stress-free experiences in diverse destinations.

Explore the Fishing Villages

There are various small fishing villages near Ngapali Beach, and most retain their traditional appearance and customs. Some can be reached on foot, while others are further away, but can still be reached by bicycle or motorcycle.

Bicycles or motorbikes can be rented in many hotels. This is a great opportunity for you to learn more about fishermen's lives in Myanmar.

Discover Marine Life

The diving around Ngapali is still largely unexplored. But at the sites that have been developed, there is an abundance of colorful reef fish and hard corals. Several reefs await your discovery, a couple of hours by boat from Ngapali.

If you don't want to carry heavy air cylinders, snorkeling is also a good way for you to explore underwater life. After the exercise, enjoy a bottle of beer or a soft drink on the boat, with the breeze blowing in your face, and you will forget your fatigue.

See the Sea by Kayak

One of the best ways to take in beautiful Ngapali Beach is through active and exhilarating activities such as sea kayaking.

There's nothing better than to glide through the water using the finest sea kayaking equipment, with a bird's-eye view of the beautiful sea fish below.

After you arrive at the lovely stop just off Pearl Island, you can also swim and snorkel in the crystal-clear water.

Admire Stunning Sunsets

Enjoy some of the most romantic experiences of your life, admiring the beautiful sunsets.

Whether sitting on a balcony with a glass of wine or at the seaside restaurant tasting delicacies, renting a boat and breathing the salty air along with your beloved, or walking on the soft beach letting the waves wash over your bare feet; looking west in the evening will leave you with beautiful, indelible memories.

Savor a Seafood Feast

If you are a seafood gourmet, Ngapali will not disappoint you. One of its delights is its delicious fresh seafood.

Seafood in Ngapali is tasty, fresh and cheap. There's a good variety, including squid, lobster, king prawn, snapper, and barracuda. There's also a good variety of seafood cooking techniques, and you'll surely find something to your taste.

After a tiring day, a sumptuous seafood dinner might be the best reward for you. Ordering a glass of iced beer, enjoying the spectacular sunset, you will be completely immersed in the charm of the beautiful view and the delicious food.

In Ngapali, there are many great restaurants awaiting your discovery. The Sea Queen, Pleasant Islet Restaurant and Ngapali Kitchen, for example, are all good. The food is not only fresh and reasonably-priced, the service will also make you feel at home.
