Patenga Beach, Chittagong City

3.1
#4 of 11 in Beaches in Bangladesh
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.

  • It is not actually the type of sea beach. It is basically a port and sea sight is good. You can see large ship harbouring, concrete blocks, speed boat ride, local markets. I can assure you will enjoy your time.
  • Used to be a lovely tourist place in Chittagong. Currently there is literally no beach due to ongoing construction works. Let's hope the situation gets improved later.
  • It's a beautiful place for tourist. You can enjoy sea weather from here. Also mentioning that illegal drugs & other things available here.
  • Patenga is a popular tourist spot. The beach is very close to the Bangladesh Naval Academy of the Bangladesh Navy and Shah Amanat International Airport. Its width is narrow and swimming in the seas is not recommended. Part of the seashore is built-up with concrete walls, and large blocks of stones have been laid to prevent erosion. During the 1990s, a host of restaurants and kiosks sprouted out around the beach area. Lighting of the area has enhanced the security aspect of visiting at night.
  • Its a muddy sea beach. You will get a different view of sea there. Its not the usual sea beach. You will get local professional photographer there to capture the moment. Concrete blocks at the beach improves the look of the beach. You will get to see ships at short distant that waiting to complete the shipping.
