Maungmagan Beach is located a 30 minute drive away from the city of Dawei in Tanintharyi Division. It is a long stretch of picturesque coastline with pine trees and rolling hills forming the backdrop to the white sand beach. Arriving at the beach at dawn, the sky blushes pink as local fishing families haul in their catch. Kids run and play among wooden boats adorned with colourful flags.
