Cox’s Bazar

Cox’s Bazar, some 150 km south of the city of Chittagong, is believed to be the longest natural sandy sea beach in the world, stretching unbroken for over 125 km. Although it is one of the most visited destinations in Bangladesh, the tourists themselves are home grown, with very few International visitors.

A busy fishing port and town, Cox’s Bazar is expanding rapidly, as almost everywhere else in the country. Sadly I saw many large hotels being built right on the edge of the beautiful golden sand. Its natural beauty remains relatively unspoiled however, with many picturesque wooden fishing boats to be seen from the waters edge.

Sunset each evening bathed the water, transforming all that interacted with it into a scene of magic and a thing of simple beauty.
