Myingun Island, also known as Myengu, is an island in the Bay of Bengal, Burma (Myanmar). It belongs to Rakhine State and is located 5 kilometres (3 miles) to the south of Sittwe, separated from the continental shore by a 2-kilometre-wide (1.2 mi) strait.


The island stretches parallel to the coast and has a length of 33 km (21 mi) and a maximum width of 3.8 km (2.4 mi). There are two localities on the island, Sandawshin in the south and Pyaingdaung in the north. Both villages are located on the eastern coast of the island.[1]
