Ngapali

 
 

This beach, 3km long, is the most famous in the country for its beauty. At the bottom of a wide protected bay, the surrounding vegetation is tropical and lush.

This exceptionally beautiful site will delight all travellers looking for a moment of rest. It is said that Ngapali is named by an Italian who would have recognized in this bay the coast of Naples (Naples).

Here, it is a small part of the world, far from mass tourism, between coconut palms and fine sand beach.

With very beautiful white sandy beach, Ngapali is the perfect image that the traveller can make of the legendary Bay of Bengal: wild beaches, few tourists and few tourist infrastructures. This destination is therefore recommended for the travelers wishing a break in their trip, far from mass tourism.
