Cox's Bazar

Miles of golden sands, towering cliffs, surfing waves, rare conch shells, Buddhist Temples and tribes, colorful Pagodas and delightful sea-food - all this makes what Cox's Bazar is, today, the tourist capital of Bangladesh. Located along the Bay of Bengal in South Eastern Bangladesh, Cox's Bazar Town is a small port and health resort. But it is mostly famous for its long natural sandy beach - an incredible 121 km in length. The World's longest uninterrupted beach slopes here down to the blue waters of the Bay of Bengal against the picturesque background of a chain of hills covered with deep green forests. Inani beach

Cox's Bazar is one of the most attractive tourist spots in the world. The warm, shark free, waters are good for bathing and swimming & while the sandy beaches offer opportunities for sun-bathing. The best time to go there is at sunrise and sunset when the sand changes colors. Watching the sun set is lovely. Further down south from the town are other parts of the beaches which are not well known to tourists. Here you can go early in the morning and see the fishermen coming back with their morning catch as the sun rises by the horizon. Everything is good for photos.
