An Inch of Undeveloped Coastline

This is a adventurous day out from Chaung Tha, you’ll need to be a confident motorcyclist with some muscle power, (the trip includes hauling the scooter off boats and over narrow planks as below).
Roll across this board for boarding

Or consider hiring a guide/driver. The trip will take you from Chaung Tha, across three estuaries by three ferries, to Ngwe Saung- for a look-around, lunch, and if you like, cappuccino and cake at one of the more sumptuous resorts. (Yes please!)

Expect near-deserted beaches,

Fruit tasting

Start the return journey by three, so you don’t miss the last ferry back. Google Maps helped us with navigation, as did the people in the villages we passed.
