Patenga Beach, Chittagong City

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. Put Patenga Beach and other Chittagong City attractions into our Chittagong City trip itinerary site , and watch your holiday take shape.

  • Newly renovated. Extremely popular and extremely crowded on the weekends and holidays. Nice place to spend 2-3 hours in the afternoon. Some water activities are available in the beach. Loads of street food options are there.
  • Lots of work is going on. Now it is more beautiful. Nice pace for spending quality time.
