The secluded sands of Wa Ale island are found in the magnificent Mergui Archipelago of Myanmar, off the coast of the country’s most southern region, and are part of the Lampi National Marine Park.

After a three-hour boat ride from Kawthaung, you’ll find yourself in this quintessential paradise, which is exclusively owned by the Wal Ale Resort.

Here, clear blue waters meet fine golden sands, perfect for a peaceful stroll by the ocean. Dive head first into the range of ocean-based activities on offer, from swimming and snorkeling to paddleboarding and kayaking.

Or why not go on an exciting hike to explore its magnificent jungle, which covers the island with an array of flora and fauna?

Wherever your impulses take you, here you’ll be sure to soak up the glorious sun and bathe in the natural wonder that infuses the landscape.
