Wonder why it was named bird island. Did not see any. They say it's good for snorkeling. For me it was so so. Please take your own speed boat. Do not go in the locals slow boat. Packed with people

Clear water with we can see the fish. Seafood is not fresh which is not a plus. Friendly local people. The island is quite small enough to explore in 30’

Great swimming among the tropical fish and rocks. Clear waters and a fun time for a few hours off-shore.

Never to go there. Nothing to see nothing to do.
It cost 20 Usd/people.
The boatride to Long Island is 2.5 hours and snorkeling only 20 minutes but this is enough time...not coralls no fish :(( from long Islang 40 minutes Bird Island...horror way to go out... nothing to do there. Only few step to the top.... and back is 2 hours long. Never.

that is the good place to visit at ngwe saung beach because there we can chill out the bird island mean we can climb up the top of the island and see the amazing view of the sea and there we can eat the fresh sea fish grilled and others by the island restaurant and then we can go ahead to the snorkeling place where we can see the clear underwater for the coral and fishes or you can do fishing around the snorkeling island for the fun.
the other point is so cheap to go that island because we have to pay only 20$ or 25000ks around which is included life jacket, snorkeling equipment's,lunch box, water, watermelon, pick up and drop off to the hotel back services.

The bird island is ok to dive and snorkeling. Better places at another sites. But you can take tour with a boat and take hours of relax. If you dont like , take time and go to the beach !

So many beautiful natural sights to feel and take photos.
You can make sea sports such as snorkeling and diving along the shore.
Sea foods are not good on the island and little expensive. The bad thing is that there is only one toilet over there.

This island is a bit far from Ngwe Saung Beach. Now you can easily hire boat to go there. This place is good for snorkeling and photo shootings. I love seeing colorful kinds of fishes swimming in the clean water.

The boat did it pick me up at the hotel as scheduled, then did the same again after making me wait for a second driver.
No apologies or explanation fromMr. Win, and after asking around, found this to be his usual style of doing business.
There are other boats to use.
