KAN THAR YAR OVERVIEW
Myanmar is bordered by the Bay of Bengal to the west and the Andaman Sea to the south however the long coastline of about 2,000 kilometres goes from tropical to cooler climates. The coastline is almost facing west, giving spectacular views at sunset. There are plenty of lovely beaches which nestle along the shores of the Bay of Bengal and the Andaman Sea. Many are as yet "undiscovered" by tourists; unspoilt by over development, they are only now being opened up as little havens of peace and quiet. One of the most recent beach resorts to be developed for tourists and local visitors is aptly named Kanthayar, or Pleasant Beach Resort. It is located in the Rakkhine (Arakan) State about 16 miles north of the small town of Gwa. Like its more famous neighbouring beach resort of Ngapali 65 miles farther north, Kanthayar was developed with the initiative and active co-operation and help of the Tatmadaw, the Myanmar army. Ngapali was transformed from a quiet fishing village to a popular beach resort during the military Caretaker Government Period of the late 1950ís. Kanthayar was "found" and named for development on the initiative of the Commander of the Western Command whose Headquarters are at Sittwe (Akyab) farther north on the same coast. Kanthayar Beach Resort was officially opened on 24th March 1995 by Lt-Gen. Tin Oo, Secretary (2) of the then State Law and Order Restoration Council, to mark the Golden Jubilee of the Armed Forces Day which falls each year on 27th March. The beach resort was opened three days ahead as one of the main events to commemorate the Golden Jubilee.
