Default Nice Myanmar beach in late June

As per subject. Is there a beach in Myanmar that would be pleasant in
late June - not big waves or jellyfish?

people stay at Shwe Hin Tha Hotel (Mr George), price from $ 6, taxi WAS (Jan
2005) 4000/4500 per car. Exchange rate $ 1 = 1305 (source

According to http://www.exotissimo.com/newsletter/Issue35/page8.htm


And more from that site, quite handy:
The monsoon period in Myanmar means that especially in the south
(Yangon, Golden Rock, Moulmein) and in the west (Mrauk U and the
beaches) it can rain a lot during this period. Not only at the end of
the day, but in Yangon sometimes all day. Therefore we recommend
clients travelling in this period not to stay too long in Yangon but
spend more time upcountry in Bagan, Mandalay and Inle Lake. These areas
are much dryer.

....

In summary places to avoid during the rainy season in Myanmar are Mrauk
U, Ngapali Beach, Ngwe Saung Beach, Golden Rock and Moulmein. Trekking
is also not recommended during this time of year. Places that are
excellent for travelling during this time are Bagan, Moniwa, Mandalay,
Maymyo, Kalaw, Inle Lake and Pindaya.
