It is situated to the west of Myanmar in the Bay of Bengal. ‘Ngwe’ means silver, which explains perfectly the silvery sand on the beach here. There is a domestic airline called Air Bagan which flies here from Pathein. The flight lasts 25 minutes. From Pathein one has to take a car ride to reach the beach. Since travelling to Ngwe Saung is not the easiest experience, not too many people brave the journey and this has allowed the beach here to remain unspoilt by tourist invasions. Those who like Ngapali Beach because of its cleanliness and tranquillity will also appreciate the scarce human activity at the Ngwe Saung Beach.
