Beaches and Nature

The Dawei peninsula is known for its many beaches.  Just 12 kilometers (30 minutes) northwest from the city of Dawei is Maung Magan beach.  This is a beach especially popular with locals for a day away from the city.  Here you can find many restaurants and small shops along the waterfront.  If you happen to be in Dawei during one of the many holidays, you may want to celebrate on the beach with the local residents.  During holidays like the New Year, many people will build bonfires and set off fireworks in the evening. 
As you move further south on the peninsula you will pass through many local fishing villages.  Photography lovers may want to make a stop at Tizit Beach which is a very picturesque fishing village located on a beautiful beach.

Paradise Beach, Dawei Peninsula

About 2 hours south along the peninsula are Paradise Beach and Grandfather Beach.  At Paradise Beach, you can find a few rustic bungalows to stay overnight; however, these are often book in advance so be sure to make reservations. Grandfather Beach is a very large stretch of nearly pristine beach.  It is rare to still find beaches this untouched.
 
At the southern tip of the peninsula is the Shin Maw Pagoda.  It is considered by locals to be one of the most sacred Buddhist sites in the Dawei region.
