Patenga Sea Beach
Patenga sea beach is located 14 kilometers south of the port city of Chittagong, Bangladesh. Patenga Sea Beach is near the mouth of the Karnaphuli River. Patenga is a popular tourist center in the city of Chittagong. Many foreign and Bangladeshi visitors from abroad come out every year to see the beautiful surroundings of the Patenga sea beach and to attract natural beauty. This beach was severely damaged in the 1991 cyclone. There is a barricade made of cement at the beach today.
Patenga is a popular tourist spot. The beach is very close to the Bangladesh Naval Academy of the Bangladesh Navy and Shah Amanat International Airport. Its width is narrow and swimming in the seas is not recommended. Part of the seashore is built-up with concrete walls, and large blocks of stones have been laid to prevent erosion. During the 1990s, a host of restaurants and kiosks sprouted out around the beach area. Lighting of the area has enhanced the security aspect of visiting at night.
