We stayed on Ngapali Beach in January, and the weather was perfect.

We found the beach to be unspoilt, with very few people. It really was idillic.

I walked on the beach at sunrise to see the fishing boats coming in and enjoyed the tranquility.

During the day, ladies were selling fruit on the beach, but were not intrusive or pushy.

The sunsets were spectacular, and it was lovely to see the fishing boats moored at night.

I would definitely return.

White sand, palm trees and warm water. The resorts are set far enough back from the beach to be unobtrusive.
The best aspect is the lack of hassle. Compared to African or South American beaches it is amazing not to have hawkers, beggars and ‘guides’ at you the whole time. There are plenty of local people making a living from the tourists on the beach, but the assumption is that if you want something you will go and buy it. So if you don’t want anything you say hello and carry on by.
The beach massages were very popular and coconuts split open as you wait were only £1.50.
Walking down the beach to the fishing village was interesting, but I was amazed that some of the tourists seemed to think that it was OK to photograph people without asking.
Beach faces due west so excellent for sunset.

Ngapali beach is the earliest developed beach but exclusive with European travelers and less locals. Best for lounging around and surround environment is still I spoiled except there’s a local fishing village near by. I would recommend to go for a balloon ride early in the morning by Oriental Balloon over Ngapali and stay in Amata Resorts and SPA if you’re into tain forest trees and 5⭐️ service

Although getting to Ngapali was a bit expensive requiring a domestic flight, hanging out a few days at the relatively quiet Ngapali Beach enjoying the clear waters of Bay of Bengal. While it lacked the convenience and the selection of dining/activities of the more popular beach towns, it was nice to enjoy a beach town in peace in the middle of the busiest travel season. Despite a little bit of traffic with the fishing boats in the mornings and a few dozen boats docked on a small stretch of the beach, visitors had access to most of the 4 or 5 km beach to chill. The sand was fine with barely any pebbles stabbing the feet. The seaside seafood restaurants that dotted the beach all had similar menus and drinks at very reasonable prices. The lodging options, however, were not geared towards the budget traveler with most decent accommodations charging about 200 dollars per night during the winter break season.

Very nice beach, clean with not that many tourists. You can buy fresh fruit from ladies that are carrying it on their heads and are super friendly and nice. Or you can opt for a nice massage with plenty of places to choose from, again very nice people run these places. Plus the sea is clean and refreshing. Everything feels very local and authentic and I would recommend this beach to anyone who is interested.

The beaches are lovely, not much more, though. If you like dossing on a beach all day, then this is hard to beat.This time of the year (Jan/Feb), the weather is near perfect. Restaurants are mostly very quiet. If you want nightlife, forget it. Hire an e-scooter or bicycle for something different. There are a few day trips.

A very beautiful beach with excellent sunsets.
The water is warm in February and quite clear too. It's not very busy either and there's areas where it is quiet and peaceful.
There is very little litter which is excellent for Myanmar standards and there seems to be hardly any dogs on the beach.
There's also lots of down to earth bars and restaurants to chose from which line the beach and also the road adjacent to it.

The cool wind blows in the afternoon and brings up the waves. We chose to go on a snorkeling trip in the morning when the waves are calm. The beach is empty and the vendors are set up to offer you a cool drink or a meal. Heaven!

A lovely long stretch of almost but not quite white sand beach. There are hotels on the beach front but fortunately the high rise variety have not arrived here so,whilst covering a large stretch of the beach front, they are mostly not at all obvious. There are also not many sunbeds along the beach. In front of the large hotels yes, but usually just one line. And with just one beach bar at the southern end and three towards the northern end two kilometres away its not got a club 18-30 drinking atmosphere. In fact it is just a very pretty beach, clean, no parasailing, no banana boats. Hard sand at the waters edge so great for walking, warm sea and not too rough waves.
