You are now about to read the last blog out of the three blogs about a 1 week catamaran sailing experience on the Burmese ocean, continuing from night 5.
Night 5 – Nyua wee
Due to rough weather in the evening, we have spent the fifth night at the same spot as the second, in the Nyua Wee area.

In the morning, our captain spotted a group of turtles, amazing. However, unfortunately, we did not see them as they were gone by the time we were looking! Nearby, we anchored to go for a snorkel. This was the best snorkeling spot of the week! A lot of clownfish and great coral reefs.
Sailing off to the 115 island group. The biggest island is called: “115” because it is 115 meters high. Things can be that simple.

The 115 island in Myanmar is a true gem. White sandy beaches with turquoise water and a calm shore-line. The group did a bush-walk through the island, which was about 10 minutes’ walk on a narrow island pathway. The island is not completely uninhabited as snakes and spiders etc. live a happy life there. A good idea to wear shoes for the bush walk! On the other end a great beach was found again, where the sand is so loose that you can sink into it until your knees.
Night 6 – 115 Islands
We spent the last night looking out on 115 island. And again, nature had a pretty special sunset in store for us!

The next morning, as early as 6 am, we set course to Kawthaung. The Myanmar harbor village where our trip would come to an end. Along the way we spotted a few dolphins, cruising past our boat for a while and then disappearing in the great blue.

Dreading the fact that the week was over, we said our goodbyes and parted ways. All that is left are fantastic memories and the pictures to prove it.
See for yourself!
