Ngapali is indeed a pleasant beach resort for those who want to get away from the noise, hustle and bustle of living in crowded cities. Located on the Rakhine coast and known as the Naples of the East, supposed to have been named after by Italians who had been there during the first Angelo-Burmese war, Ngapali is one of the beautiful beaches in Myanmar. This unspoiled beach streatching over 3 km with blue sea, white sand and swaying palm trees is 35 minutes flight from Yangon. By overland, 14 hours drive along the narrow winding road over the Rakhine Yoma after crossing the Ayeyarwaddy River at Pyay (Prome). There is an 18-hole golf course about 15 minutes drive from the beach.
Tourists and visitors are coming to enjoy its lovely scenery, taste the delights of the local seafood and get to know the simple native.
Those visiting Ngapali can enjoy the benefit of health by swimming in clean and fresh seawater with peace of mind, as there are no strong tides. There are also no sharks due to nearby islands and corals.
Under the shade of the coconut trees, we can sit out to enjoy the coconut juice while facing the sea and gazing of the changing light on the sea. The white clouds are slowly moving in the sky. Coconut trees are swaying side to side in the wind. Ngapali is a perfect place for peaceful relaxation. A visit to Ngapali is a must.
