Among three main beach resorts on Myanmar’s Bay of Bengal coast, Chaung Thar is the most down to earth, and you can find the largest number of locals on holiday here. The beach lacks the white-sand perfection of Ngapali and Ngwe Saung, but it has several offshore islands to explore and snorkel around, and offers the same delicious range of fresh seafood as its more exclusive rivals. Chaung Thar is the same distance from Yangon by road as Ngwe Saung, and you can travel between the two beaches by motorbike along a coastal track. For little budget and being in touch with locals we’d suggest to go Chaung Thar!
