There are a host of simple restaurants serving fresh seafood here and a 30 minute walk south will take you to a characterful fishing village with small boats nestled in its harbour – and some picture-perfect beer stations where you can relax and take in the views and sea breeze (check out our YouTube video from the village). There are a number of stunning, untouched stretches of coastline to be discovered in the area. Whilst Maungmagan is popular and fun, it can get busy at certain times of year and the sand is not perfect. But near Dawei there are dozens of idyllic white sand beaches where you are unlikely to see another soul (other than the odd fisherman), particularly on the peninsula towards Dawei Point.

Breakfast at your hotel, At the far northern end, a rocky outcrop separates the beach from less popular and less accessible beaches further up the coast, including the spectacular white sands of Nabule Beach around 15 kilometres north. In the other direction, a reasonable, partially sealed track follows the coast south to more bays and fishing villages. The first rocky headland south also holds a small pagoda, Myaw Yit, reached by a footbridge connecting it to the mainland. From the Maungmakan beach area, head back to the village and take a right turn on what passes for the main road. Continuing south, you’ll get glimpses of the pagoda and rocky outcrop from time to time, so just look out for a dirt track on the right. This takes you a kilometre or so past a tiny but very picturesque fishing village to a small carpark for the pagoda. The small pagoda, popular with local visitors, contains the usual collection of nat shrines and chedis and offers some fine sea views as well as ones back across the bay to Maungmakan. For more great views and excellent seafood dishes there’s a small restaurant on stilts right at the land end of the bridge. Back past the fishing village, which does have a couple of very friendly tea shops. You be in the bus to return to hotel .
