Snorkelling, Scuba diving, Kayaking & Sailing

With 2,228 km of coastline, abundant beautiful scenery, countless palm-fringed islands, and a rich marine biodiversity, Myanmar is a great choice for those wishing to take part in snorkelling, scuba diving, kayaking and sailing.

However, it is well to remember that it is only recently that such tourism has been possible in Myanmar, since previously there was little specialist equipment available. In consequence, there are relatively few facilities (although more are appearing each year) and some operators are less experienced and sophisticated than others. Therefore tourists must be vigilant about their own safety (further information).

It is hoped that by encouraging tourists interested in observing and sharing the beauty of Myanmar’s coastal waters, more can be done to protect these fragile ecosystems. Some is already at considerable risk (further information). Now is the time to conserve this natural diversity, including spectacular fish, corals, and aquatic flora.

Please come and enjoy Myanmar’s coast responsibly, including the wonderful Myeik Archipelago. Let’s all work hard to preserve it for future generations.
