Meet The Moken in Myanmar!

A yacht hire Myanmar really is remote exploration sailing with no internet or mobile phones, no resorts or hotels, just nature at its most pristine! Get roaming without your data roaming and set sail around the 800 islands of the Mergui Archipelago of Myanmar, with the Lampi Marine National Park at the northern end of the sailing areas!


The only marine national park in Myanmar has recently opened for the new season. Lampi Marine National Park protects over 1000 species of animals, plants and marine life, and was declared an ASEAN Heritage Park in 2003.Lampi map1

The marine park consists of Lampi Island and its surrounding waters. Lampi Island is the biggest island in the southern part of the Mergui Archipelago, over 200 square km in size, and rising over 500 metres above sea level.

Canoeing in the mangroves, hiking in the jungle, watching sea turtles, birdwatching, snorkelling and visiting the local Moken villages, are just some of the activities possible in one of the last sailing wildernesses on earth.

The two rivers on Lampi Island meet the sea on the west coast, giving rise to rich mangrove forests, home to a wide range of marine life, birds, and reptiles. Well over 200 species of birds have been recorded, so get your binoculars out and record what spectacular species you see!

The local sea gypsies, the Moken, will show you life almost untouched by the outside world…

And some of the beaches are to die for as they are totally unspoiled; you are far more likely to see the footprints of lizards and wild boar than other humans! beach1Boatbookings offers a wide range of charter yachts that cruise the Mergui Archipelago between November and April each year.
