The Mergui Archipelago is located in the southernmost part of Burma in the Andaman Sea and comprises over 800 remote beautiful islands. The archipelago was off limits to outsiders until only recently and this isolation helped protect the islands and surrounding seas allowing them to thrive with an amazing diversity of flora & fauna. The area boasts beautiful underwater reef environments and a huge variety of marine life making it an excellent destination for snorkelling and diving.
The only residents of the region remain the Bamahs, Pashu and Salon sea gypsies who live on boats during the dry season and on land during the wet, their lifestyle and traditions remain the same to this day. Access to the region is via flight to the southernmost town in the country – go any further and you will be in Thailand!
