Myeik (Mergui) Archipelago features more than 800 mostly unihabited islands throughout the Andaman Sea. The Archipelago is located off the coast between Myeik (Mergui) and Kawthaung (Victoria Point). Due to its virtual isolation, the islands and surrounding seas are alive with an amazing diversity of flora and fauna and beautiful underwater scenes and marine life. Mergui Archipelago is famous as a destination for activities such as diving, snorkeling, sea kayaking, fishing and research. There are few islands left in the world as pristine and untouched as those in Mergui Archipelago. Macleod has an unspoiled environment and jungle with many tropical plants and bird life. A hike to Macleod’s highest peak offers some of the most amazing views. You can choose to explore the hills yourself or hire a guide. Many bird species breed on the island, making it a real bird sanctuary.There is no better way to get experience Mergui’s culture than to explore the Sea Gypsy villages and trading points. We organize cultural tours that will let you see how the Gypsies live and fish.
