Went there with a friend and the beach itself is beautiful. But there is rubbish on the beach shore. Other than that everything is fine and hope the beach will be cleaner in next time.

Very quiet during the week, but explodes on a Sunday as the beach is for the Dawei locals to come and picnic and play in the water fully clothed...Great place for a sunset seafood meal or drink. Yes sometimes can look a bit messy but...More

This beach is only about 30 minutes from Dawei city, and is accessible by bike/car/bus. But being the easiest beach to access means that there are a lot of people, both local and tourists (compared to other beaches on the peninsula). It not very clean....More

Very different from the deserted Nabule and Grandfather beaches but a pleasure not to be missed. This is a busy beach frequented by Myanmar people with a waterfront of restaurants and stalls selling food, drinks, clothes, and renting out inner tubes for swimming.

We have eaten the best barbecued fish at Maungmagan Beach. The Seafood is also delicious. Try Aung San Restaurant. When the tide is out the beach is a great place for a bike ride. There are bikes to rent at the beach.

Compared to the other beaches on the peninsula this is less beautiful. Access is easier that's why more visited, mostly by locals. It's also massive but more dirty. A lot of restaurants & places to drink. Sunset here was superb!

If you hire a motor bike it’s about 1/2 hour, the road winds around through a couple of villages and then there is a sign to the beach. The road ends at the Maungmagan Resort, but you can turn off anywhere before and end up...More

The beach is stunning. Many kilometres long and very few people. The restaurant area of the beach offers many places to eat and have a cold drink. The restaurant owners are making some progress with managing the litter which is ubiquitous in Myanmar.
