You might not think of Bangladesh as a beach holiday destination, but you’d be wrong. Bangladesh is home to countless amazing sandy beaches, including the longest beach in the world!
This article will look at some of the best beaches located both on the Bangladesh mainland and the surrounding islands.
Cox’s Bazar Beach
Cox’s Bazar Beach is one of the best beaches in Bangladesh. It is the world’s largest natural sandy beach, so it’s a must-visit while you’re in the country. It is quite far from the capital city Dhaka (414 km to be exact), but this is an incredibly popular tourist destination among all.
Parki Beach is a large sandy beach that isn’t as famous with tourists as other Bangladesh beaches, but its popularity is now increasing. This beach is known for its wildlife, including unique trees and red crabs.
Saint Martin Beach
It is the main beach of Saint Martin Island, which is a small coral island lying off the coast of Bangladesh. This would be a fantastic place for snorkelling and scuba diving.
Kuakata Beach is 15 kilometres long and is the perfect place to enjoy the sunrise and sunset because of the unique way that it bends. In the daytime, it is a perfect spot for sunbath and enjoying the tropical atmosphere, with rows of coconut trees. There is also an attractive mangrove forest just inland from this beach.
Sonadia Beach is located on Sonadia Island, an unspoiled paradise with an 8 km square area. The island is virtually uninhabited, and its tropical beaches are marvellous places to relax. The island is also famous for its biodiversity.
Mandarbaria Beach is located in the Satkhira district of Bangladesh. In a prime Bay-of-Bengal location, this beach is close to the Sundarbans, the largest mangrove forest in the world.
As you can see, there are many amazing beaches in Bangladesh for you to explore. After you have enjoyed all of Dhaka’s attractions and have trekked in the mangrove forest, it is well worth seeing these on your trip to the country.
