Leave the noise of the city behind you and get out into the colorful countryside. Claim your own beach and forget about everything. Explore the beautiful Dawei Peninsula on good paved roads. Take a smile and a handshake from curious locals. Let the waves of the ocean take you to sleep.
You will be staying at Myanmar Paradise Beach Bungalows at Zat Sar Aw Beach during this trip. It is currently the only licensed accommodation on the Dawei Peninsula. The bungalows are tucked away under coconut palm tree and just a stone throw away from the waterfront. The bungalows are spacey, consisting of eight-square kilometer terrace, 10-square kilometer living room, and six-square kilometer bathroom.
The white sandy beach and the turquoise waters make it a perfect place for vacation. The bay is without inhabitants and the bungalows are surrounded only by jungle. Snorkeling can be done right from the beach. There are quite a few colorful fish, but only a little coral. It is the perfect place to pitch up a hammock and relay under shady trees. Write your diary and finish reading your book. Access is only by boat (from Nyaung Pyin village), on foot (45 minutes), or by motorbike. Local minivans drive several times a day to the nearest village (45 minutes' walk or 10 minutes by motorbike taxi). Beware, the road is tricky, you might want to walk and just got your luggage dropped.
If you like, you can skip the hotel breakfast to get an early start and have a traditional breakfast at the local market (included). On the way, you will stop every now and then and take a look at the agriculture products being farmed on the Dawei Peninsula. You will drive pass rice fields and rustic villages until you arrive at a very tiny village for a walk to a secluded bay. It depends on the tide which beaches you are going to, some are only accessible by foot, others you can drive to.
Your trip continues after a local lunch (included) towards Dawei Point. After driving along a cliff road with magnificent views over the ocean, you arrive at accommodation in the afternoon. Now, it is time to unwind and relax. Enjoy a sundowner and a delicious seafood dinner.
After breakfast, you drive to a small fishing village Nyaung Byin where you get to know about the daily life of the fishermen. Two of the main products, which are produced here is dry fish and fish paste. Depending on the tide, you will go for a ride along a four-kilometer beach stretch with turquoise waters and sand so fine that you can hear it. On your way out, you drive about a steep climb to Dawei’s own Golden Rock Pagoda. Enjoy the breathtaking panoramic view from the top down on Grandfather’s beach and the surrounding villages. You will have lunch in a local clean restaurant.
In the afternoon, you drive to another beautiful beach call Horse Shoe Bay. Here, you enjoy some more time for relaxing and swimming. You wait until the heat settles and continue a trip along the coastal cliff road towards Shin Maw Pagoda. This is one of the the 9 Shin Pagodas, pilgrims pray at all 9 of them to get good luck. You will watch a magnificent sunset from here. Afterwards, you will return to your bungalows.
After breakfast and a last swim, you will pack your stuff together and head back towards Dawei. On the way, you will stop at a brick factory and learn how bricks are made. Getting closer to the city, you will see more and more toddy palm trees. Toddy palm juice is used for cooking and making alcohol. You can have a taste of the local brew and explain how it is made. In the afternoon, arrive back in Dawei. End of services.

There are small bays around the beach, where trees offer shade to spend a day out of the sun.
Tway is a humble person will take you on a journey and explain to you the local life of the people.
During this tour, you will be able to explore the Dawei Peninsula, Myanmar on two wheels.
The Dawei Peninsula stretches from Nabule Beach in the north (Burmese: Mayingyi Aw) for about 100 kilometers to the south and finishes at Dawei Point with Shin Maw Pagoda. Along this coastline, there are maybe the best onshore beaches in Myanmar. The access to these splendid beaches is missing infrastructure, which keeps them unspoiled. It will be only a matter of time as various investors announced already building plans.
There are opportunities for jungle trekking and snorkeling, most of them are not yet discovered. The daily life on the peninsula seems to be pretty relaxed and the local people are very welcoming. Main industry is fishing, rubber plantation, and rice paddy fields. It seems that there is a little wealth among the people as houses are in good shape and pagodas and monasteries nearly everywhere.
During this tour, you will be served daily breakfast, as well as one soft drink per lunch and two bottles of water.
