Comprising some 800 islands in the far south of Myanmar, the Mergui Archipelago represents one of the world’s last remaining untouched paradises. With the exception of a few temporary homes of local sea gypsies who sail between the islands they remain mostly uninhabited. They are densely forested and mountainous with jungles coming down to meet white beaches and a profuse fauna including sea eagles, parakeets, monkeys, elephants and rhinoceros.
The numerous natural harbors along the coast provide an array of day and night anchorages for boats. With a bay for every boat in any weather, visitors and world renowned scuba diving snorkelers can discover many treasures amidst the island’s waters.
