About Patenga Sea Beach
Over decades, the reef has been luring millions of nature enthusiasts with its endless beauty. Everyone has some fond memories of childhood, but the robotic city life has restrained them from recalling the days even. When they were exhausted at one stage Patenga Sea Beach, located at the confluence of Karnaphuli River, gave them a new life.
About 14 kilometers away from the port city Chittagong, the beach gained huge acclamations from domestic and foreign tourists for having some of the outstanding sunrises and sunsets. In 1991, a massive storm lashed the beach, leaving this damaged. Although the reef area is later covered by some square shaped concretes to thwart river erosion, it makes the area very splendid for the beach lovers. With this, those are dashing, and stylish seem it as a mega mall as a nearby market offers you interesting Burmese things, jewelry items, made of oyster shells and fascinating stones or clothes designed in native fashion, etc. The mind-blowing sunset viewing zone also offers you the busy guys a magnificent boat ride onto the ocean waves.
In the evening, Patenga wears a romantic look as chilling breeze touches its cheek this time.

Filled with sand, the sea beach is an ideal place to have a brief walk with your loved ones, enjoy breath in fresh air and have delicious seafood at the restaurants erected near the reef-lined with massive shady palm trees and fishing boats. This is the time when a chorus rendered by the fishermen creates a virtual melody in the air.
