Discover Myanmar’s unspoiled beaches and island culture
The Mergui archipelago is one of the last untouched tropical island systems left on earth. Few of the 900 islands have permanent habitation, save for a few fishermen. On a Mergui cruise you'll more than likely encounter nothing but dolphins, verdant islands, blue seas and tropical reefs.
Mergui is located off the southern tip of Myanmar, near the Thai border. You can reach it via flights from Yangon or on a cruise leaving Phuket. Discover a place where a lack of human interference has left islands with a full range of animal life no longer found undisturbed on the Asian mainland. The caves, beautiful beaches, crystal clear water and green tropical forest are the highlights of any Mergui cruise.
The area lends itself perfectly to sailing too. Join the elusive Moken sea gypsies and moor at any number of beaches for your own private retreat. Out in the Andaman Sea, the area is peppered with tiny islets that possess very few place names. In fact, the coastline has been generally off-limits since the end of World War II so it’s very unspoiled. But along with the rest of Myanmar, the archipelago is a blossoming destination that's ripe with culture.
