The Mergui Archipelago is a heavenly cluster of 800 islands located off the southernmost tip of Myanmar, close to the Thai border. The entry point to the Myeik Archipelago is the small city of Kawthaung. The Archipelago offers a wealth of opportunities for exploration and diving amongst spectacular marine life and untouched coral reefs. The islands and the surrounding waters of the Andaman Sea have become a popular unexplored diving destination.
The region is also a fascinating place to visit culturally. The Moken people, also known as the Salone or sea gypsies, are one of the most distinct ethnic groups of Myanmar, living a nomadic, sea-based life in the Archipelago. The Mergui Archipelago waters showcase an incredible variety of marine life, including: whale sharks, dolphins, as well as eagle and manta rays, frogfish, ribbon eels and false pipefish.
