For adventurers, especially divers, Burma Banks should be on your list. The site is located 125km west of Kawthaung, outside of the Mergui Archipelago. It’s been voted the best dive area in Myanmar with good reason – it includes enormous flat topped sea mounts, rising to within 15 metres of the Andaman Sea surface.
Travelers are advised to go for diving trips between October and May – the only period when the seas are calm, the skies are clear and even the most remote dive sites are accessible.
This island is a part of Mergui’s 800 uninhabited islands and the only way to reach it is by boat or yacht.
The island is made of thick green jungle, with strips of long golden beaches along the shores. There are no roads to these beaches, no resorts, sun loungers or umbrellas, no man-made structures of any kind, just nature.
Spend a week here sailing around the islands, exploring empty beaches, diving off your yacht, swimming and snorkelling. The only traffic you will encounter is the odd local squid fishing boat and the local Moken families who travel around in convoys of small wooden boats and greet you with smiles reflecting the spectacular rising and setting of the sun.
