Until quite recently, Myanmar was largely off limits to pleasure boats. Today, however, luxury yacht charters predominantly take place along the country’s southern coast, just north of the border of Thailand. A remote part of South East Asia, southern Myanmar is home to a collection of 800 islands known as the Mergui Archipelago that stretches across 14,000 square miles of the Andaman Sea.

Characterised by their rugged limestone and granite terrain, the islands are carpeted in dense rainforest above the high-tide line while, along the coast, vast stretches of mangroves and gorgeous white-sand beaches are interspersed with rocky headlands, tidal creeks and a few freshwater rivers.

One of the rare destinations that remains free of mankind’s influence, the cruising grounds of Myanmar are largely unexplored, and boast a great diversity of wildlife. The azure waters are brimming with delicately divine coral, multi-coloured tropical fish, and larger marine creatures such as manta rays and sharks, offering unrivalled diving and snorkelling opportunities.

Plus, as the majority of the islands are uninhabited, with a few home to small communities of nomadic Moken ‘sea gypsies’, these unspoiled waters will be yours alone. This is not forgetting, however, the incredible animals including leopards, tigers, elephants, rhinos and macaques that roam the islands’ interiors. 

Visitors to mainland Myanmar, meanwhile, will take in golden stupas as tall as skyscrapers, ancient ruins, intriguing hill tribes, wild jungles, legions of monks and enchanting cities.
