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.

  • I went there with my friends and it was like hell to enjoy. Riding speed boat was one of the greatest fun. Enjoyed the sun, kites in the sky, people from different religion. Shore side foods, fish fry, street foods and achar were really tasty. Looking forward to going there again.
  • It is a great place to enjoy your holiday. Recently I visited this sea beach with my honourable friends. I saw that it is rebuilted. For this reason we were suffering. After a few days it will be reconstruct than it will become pleasurable.
  • What a beauty! I love this place. I visited on that place for many times but all the time I invented it in new. The sea beach not too many long but in the case of beauty it is obviously deserve admire.
  • Nice sea beach in Chittagong. But the location is bit complicated to go and is very nasty. The natural scenery is very good and you can enjoy bit different sea beach here then coxes Bazar. I recommend you but alert you before you go with family members as the transportation and the road is not good here।
  • Patenga Beach is one of the renowned beaches in Bangladesh. For watching sunset, Patenga is a beautiful sea beach close to Chittagong city. It is near the beginning of the Karnaphuli River. Nature lovers come here to enjoy the beautiful scenario of the Bay of Bengal and get away from busy city life. Patenga is a popular tourist spot. The beach is very close to Bangladesh Naval Academy of Bangladesh Navy, and Shah Amanat International Airport. The width of the beach is narrow and swimming is not recommended in the seas here. As part of the sea shore a concrete walls can be seen along the shore. Also large blocks of stones have been laid out to prevent erosion. During 1990s lots of restaurants and kiosks have been developed around the beach area. Lighting of the beach area has enhanced the security aspect of night visit. People visiting this beautiful place usually wake up early to witness the stunning sunrise.
