Comprising some 800 islands in the far south of Myanmar, the Mergui Archipelago represents one of the world’s last remaining untouched paradises. Though a few are temporary homes to local sea gypsies who sail between them, most of the islands are 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.
On the coasts you can find numerous natural harbours providing a wide range of day and overnight anchorages. There is a bay for every boat in any weather. The scuba diving is world class, especially off the islands furthest from the mainland. Even for the casual snorkeller there is much to discover around all the islands.
The charters of our sister company UNITEAM YACHTING sail back and forth between Myeik (Mergui) in the north and Kawthaung in the south, allowing visitors to see as much of the Archipelago as possible. Both places have nearby airports providing easy transfers from Yangon.
