The Mergui is a delightfully untouched collection of 800 deserted picture-perfect islands, complete with white sandy beaches and shallow, turquoise waters. Luckily tourism hasn’t arrived (yet), and the only way to truly explore this lost paradise is to hop on a yacht and spend a few days sailing between them.
Burma Boating have a range of yachts that can be privately chartered, or you can join their set sailing departures. Most of the boats have between 4 and 6 cabins and come fully staffed a fantastic crew. Spend your days swimming, snorkelling and visiting remote island villages. Maybe stop for a barbecue on a deserted beach, or sit down with your fellow luxury adventurers over a three-course dinner on the deck of the yacht. There are a range of boats to choose from, including the SY Meta IV, built entirely from Burmese teak and offering wonderful en-suite cabins. The Raja Laut is a classic wooden schooner, with the SY Meltemi is a state-of-the-art luxury catamaran. MY Drenec is a more traditional classic exploration vessel, with really good quality cabins. Other options include the Aventure, Sunshine and Scame.
