Great Swinton Island, also known as Kyun Pila, is in the Mergui Archipelago, Myanmar (formerly Burma). This group of islands in the Andaman Sea is in the far south of Myanmar, just 70 km north of the border with Thailand. There are more than 800 islands here, which attract eco-tourists, snorkelers, and resort developers. But tourism in this region has hardly been touched. Swinton is home to a small fishing village. The features of this sparsely inhabited island are its sweeping curved beaches, the longest 2 km.

At the far eastern end of the island is a gold-topped Buddhist temple, and nearby the fishing village. Apart from that, there are no inland features, just jungle-cladding. The names of this and other islands hark back to the days of British India, though many are renamed locally. Which brings us to Captain W.E. Johns’ school-boy books “Biggles Delivers the Goods”, ”Biggles – Air Commodore”, and “Biggles and the Lost Sovereign”, all set here in the Mergui Archipelago; and also mentioned in the 1995 James Bond film Thunderball.

The Mergui islands feature limestone and granite, rocky headlands, mangrove swamps, and rainforest. Offshore are coral reefs (dive December to April) with whale sharks and manta rays (February to May). Boats visit between October and May, outside of the monsoon season. On the islands are deer, monkeys, hornbills and others. The ethnic dwellers are the Moken, sea nomads. The area opened to tourism in 1997
