Wa Ale Island Resort – Myeik Archipelago, Myanmar
The scenic, jagged coastline encircles two wonderful beaches. The Honeymoon Beach is about a kilometre’s walk from the small, laid-back tented resort, following lush rainforest tracks, where the dazzling white sand and calm waters are as dreamy as they sound. The other one, Turtle Beach, is not quite so carefree, but just as lovely. Here native turtles lay their eggs all year round, and the Lampi Foundation conservation charity makes sure you can observe the lifecycles of these beautiful creatures without interfering. Then again, you might come face to face with one in the warm waters nearby, when you sample the excellent snorkeling and diving on offer, not to mention the kayaking through the labyrinth of the inland mangroves.
