Patenga beach is one of the most popular beach beaches in Bangladesh. Enjoy the sunset from this beach situated near the city of Chittagong and on the river Karnaphuli. Nature lovers came here to get rid of the city’s busyness and enjoy the beauty of the Bay of Bengal. This tourist spot is located near Bangladesh Naval Academy and Shah Amanat International Airport.
The width of Patenga beach is not very high and it is risky to swim in the sea. Concrete walls and large stone blocks have been kept to prevent the breakdown of sea beaches. In the nineties, a number of restaurants and food shops were set up around the beach. The lights on the beach ensure the safety of tourists visiting the night. You have to wake up early in the morning to come here to see the sunrise.
