This Pagoda is situated at a northern peninsula of Dawei. It is a locally visited site and as it was Saturday people had come to eat lunch under the Pagoda.

The drive is about 1 hour from Dawei central unless you stop along the way. It traverses through beautiful tall forests of banana, Palm and rubber trees, with kids waving from either sides of the red dirt road. Tall wooden houses stand proudly on stilts with grandma's preparing food underneath.

The peninsula greets you with fishermen fixing their boats in the harbour, and rises up in between a beautiful coastline. It is pretty sleepy which is why it's perfect to visit. We did not see any tourists.

The rocks are very interesting and we took a delicious local lunch at some stalls outside on the way out... Fish caught in the morning and somtam freshly made.

A perfect morning. Hired our bike from Best House Guest House for 9,000.

I think it’s quite half an hour drive from dawei city. The road is rough so I feel disappointed on the way there but no choice we can’t turn the car back. As soon as I see the beautiful Andaman sea I start feeling worth to visit. When we arrive the destination, the view is very breathtaking. The untouched beach with crystal clear water. The pagoda is on the top and view from top is nicer. U may feel worth to visit as soon as you arrive there.
Highly recommend when you visit Dawei.

Myaw Yit pagoda is also famous among Local People. You can reach pagoda by walking along the bridge. People love this place for photo shooting and enjoy the scenic view of Andaman Sea.

Good to visit once even there’s nothing much. But at least you can enjoy the beach and pray. A Stoney beach, that’s would be could if you bring your drone and make some travel video.

Visited this pagoda while biking along the coast road from Maunmakan to PaNyit beach. peaceful vibe and breathtaking views of the surrounding nature...Some Buddhist pilgrims from Yangon, who were visiting relatives in Dawei, called us to come eat with them...Such lovely people, they gave us some spicy veg curry, pickles, sliced raw mangos, rice and a whole sea bass fish...& dragon fruit & mangos for desert.
Amazing hospitality...Hopefully your as lucky as we were!

You can continue from Maungmakan Beach and it have to take about 45 mins from the beach. The road is alittle rough when we got there. We you get there you will say " WOW " because it is very nice view with small island with rocks around the small island in the sea. The sea waves are coming to the small hill side slowly by slowly. I walked around the hill.

This Pagoda is a nice little trip if you have time near Dawei. The motorbike ride took a while but goes through lots of local villages. I didn't see the seafood mentioned in a previous review, only the generic precooked Myanmar dishes - indicating at least that it is not a very touristy place. Stroll over the bridge and clamber around on the rocks behind the Pagoda (locals and tourists alike were enjoying the views there).

We visit first to Dawei the continue to maungmakan beach and rest at the beach in following day.
We ask to some local peoples , is there another interesting place around and they suggest to visit Myaw Yit cape.
At the far northern end, a rocky outcrop separates the beach from less popular and less accessible beaches further up the coast, including the spectacular white sands of Nabule Beach around 15 kilometres north. In the other direction, a reasonable, partially sealed track follows the coast south to more bays and fishing villages. The first rocky headland south also holds a small pagoda, Myaw Yit, reached by a footbridge connecting it to the mainland.
From the Maungmakan beach area, head back to the village and take a right turn on what passes for the main road. Continuing south, you’ll get glimpses of the pagoda and rocky outcrop from time to time, so just look out for a dirt track on the right. This takes you a kilometre or so past a tiny but very picturesque fishing village to a small carpark for the pagoda.

The small pagoda, popular with local visitors, contains the usual collection of nat shrines and chedis and offers some fine sea views as well as ones back across the bay to Maungmakan. For more great views and excellent seafood dishes there’s a small restaurant on stilts right at the land end of the bridge. Back past the fishing village, which does have a couple of very friendly tea shops.

It's out in the sea, so it's kinda cute and during low tide you can walk along the stones and such and you have the picture of the little pagoda on the rock which is always nice. But nothing beyond that, a good stop and grab some drinks and food.

Unhappy again for a perfectly nice beach to be destroyed because of building a pagoda like this or monuments that disturb destroy our ecosystem and life in general. Garbage all around, plastic everywhere as most beaches in Dawei is. So irresponsible. In 5 more years this will become worst. I dont look forward to it.
