Patenga Beach, Chittagong City

1.8
#4 of 7 in Outdoors in Chittagong Division
Stroll along the flat bay of Patenga Beach, scattered with large chunks of concrete to deter erosion and lined sporadically with small huts or trees. Many street vendors sell ice creams and drinks but don't miss the chance to taste the area's speciality-- fried spicy mud crab served with falafel and vegetables. The beach is mostly enjoyed by locals who come to sit on the concrete slabs and pass the time looking out to the sea, as swimming is not recommended here. Visit in the evening for a vibrant atmosphere, and the chance to see beautiful sunsets and sunrises spreading across the horizon-- known as the best in Bangladesh. Put Patenga Beach and other Chittagong City attractions into our Chittagong City trip itinerary site , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Patenga beach is fifteen kilometres south of the port of Chittagong and I've been going to the airport. Pretty crowded but not especially beautiful also for works that have been done to prevent erosion. There are areas with Palm trees and fishermen as well as various vendors selling cold drinks and street food. We should not let us bathe but breathe ocean winds can be done.
