With its white sand beaches lined with coconut trees, Nagpali is the up-and-coming seaside resort in Burma and is already popular with the Burmese at weekends in March and April, the hottest months here. Being difficult to access due to a "road" in poor condition has undoubtedly contributed to preserving one of the most beautiful beaches in the country. The hotel facilities are still not very developed and the destination is expensive, but the political opening in progress is likely to change things. The main beach extends over several miles, to the north and south of the village. You will undoubtedly get to see the famous sun-dried fish and shrimp being, well, sun-dried!
There are many fishing boats in this village.© Jakob Fischer / 123RF
