Ngapali Beach in detail


Four-hour snorkelling trips, arranged by any hotel or directly with boat owners on the beach, usually depart at 7am or 8am to catch the day's clearest water. Most trips take in a few spots around (private) ‘Pearl Island’ off the south end of the beach. The coral isn't super, but there are plenty of bright red and blue fish to follow. Some people bring along fishing rods to drop a line.
