If you are planning your next trip or holiday for an amazing place which will be full of natural beauty and which will be a historical place along with some ancient ruins than I will suggest you about Cox’s Bazar. Cox’s Bazaar is a seaside town in Bangladesh. It is known for its wide and long sandy beach, which is considered by many as the world’s longest natural sandy sea beach. The beach in Cox’s Bazar is an unbroken 125 km sandy sea beach with a gentle slope. Cox’s Bazar is also known by the name “Panowa”, whose literal translation means “yellow flower.” Its other old name was “Palongkee“. As it’s the world’s largest beach it have two different names of two different parts one is Laboni Beach and another one is Kolatoli Beach.
Laboni Beach is the main beach of Cox’s Bazar, here we can easily enjoy the scenic beauty of Bay of Bengal. It’s a place for enjoyment, people used to come here even the foreigners as well. The beach is well appreciated during sunsets and sunrise, where people can witness the sea as it changes its colors twice in a day. Visitors can sunbathe, surf, jog, cycle, and swim. It is best for swimming and relaxation. Close to the beach, there are a lot of small shops selling souvenirs, locally made cigars & beauty products (sandal wood based), handmade clothes, bed sheets, dresses, shoes and beach accessories to the tourists. It is a nice place for our tourism. So, come & let’s enjoy the beauty of Laboni Beach.
Kolatoli beach is another attractive beach for the tourist. Every year different age’s people come here to take the real taste of taking sea-bath. Visitors can taking sea bath, driving sea ski boat, can take fresh and appealing various kind of sea foods. Walking beside the sea shore on moonlit night is always pleasant for all aged tourist. A slow paced life – most work happens in the morning and evening, whereas midday is reserved for drying rice and fish. During the day time, some villagers sells coconuts while others sitting in the shade and chewing paan (battle leaf). Beside Kolatoli Beach there are some Bamboo Made Restaurants where they used to sale local foods and also delicious sea foods as well. I personally go there and I must admit that they were awesome. You will like the view and environment as well. Couples will enjoy most for sure as it will be a complete romantic environment there at evening you will be able to see sunset from there as it’s on beach waves used to touch the pillars of these restaurants.
Expect those two Beach there is another Beach called Inani Beach which is within Ukhia Thana, 35 km. to the south of Cox’s Bazar. You go there by Car, Tempo or Taxi. You won’t have that much facilities at Inani Beach as its under development at the moment there aren’t too many hotels and motels there but certain steps have been taken already and development is ongoing with 1 year people will be able to stay there with all facilities as many 5 start and 7 start hotels are under construction which are almost ready. You can visit Mahesh Khali which is an island and it’s one of the attractive place for tourists its 300 feet high; but the coast to the west and north is a low-lying treat, fringed by mangrove jungle. In the hills on the coast is built the shrine of Adinath, dedicated to Siva.
St. Martins Island is the most beautiful Coral Island where you will find live corals. Its only 30 km from Teknaf and you can go there by local motorboat, tourist boats, or sea truck. This small coral island about 10km (6mi) southwest of the southern tip of the mainland is a tropical cliche, with beaches fringed with coconut palms and bountiful marine life. There’s nothing more strenuous to do here than soak up the rays, but it’s a clean and peaceful place without even a mosquito to disrupt your serenity.
