Seventy-five miles (120 Kilo miters) of uninterrupted beach make Cox's Bazaar one of Bangladesh's best-known tourist destinations and the perfect place for holyday makers and sun-seekers to relax. The resort area also boasts of exotic Arakanse Buddhist temples.
The main reason to visit Cox's bazaar is, of course, the beach, which is shark-free. Cox's Bazaar is the world's longest and broadest beach sloping gently down to the blue water of the Bay of Bengal against the picturesque background of a chain of hills covered with deep green forests.
Explore the peaceful pagodas and Khyangs, just a short walk from the bustling Burmese Market. The Khyangs are elevated upon pier-like stilts in Arakanese style. Ramu is another Arakanese community, a fourteen-kilometer drive north of Cox's bazaar. It is noted for its khayangs and, in particular, one monastery containing images of the Buddha in bronze, silver, and gold inlaid with precious and semi- precious stones. Near Ramu you'll also find the Bara khayang at lama Bazaar. The Khayangs consists of three buildings. One of them houses reliquaries and handicrafts along with the largest bronze statue of the Buddha in Bangladesh.
Maheskhali and Sonadia islands are both just a short county and speedboat ride away. Sonadia Island is a sanctuary for migratory birds such as petrels, snipe, shanks, lapwings, geese and ducks.
Saint Martin's island southernmost point of the country, is reached via a scenic two hour drive south to Teknaf (a border town with Burma) and then a breezy 14 km launch/boat journey. It is a small; sparsely populate Coral Reef Island with a single hotel and plenty of vacant beaches and coconut tree.
