Hotel quality is below average but good for its price. Communication system is not that convenient in Kuakata, you have to user either Van or bikes to... More

A peaceful place for staying 2-3 days for holidays. The beach is very safe and secured. It's filled with natural beauties. For staying there, Hotel Neelanjana Ltd is the best economy hotel.

Overall ok if you stay 24hours there, within which you can enjoy all the tourist attractions. Must not miss sunrise, sunset and a motobike ride along the sea-beach to see some areas. These motorbike are for rent with registered for tourist purpose. This area is not as lively as Coxs Bazaar. Beach area relatively less crowdy compare to Coxs Bazaar.... More

Kuakata, 35 km long sandy beach in southern part of Bangladesh, has got scenic beauty with calm and quiet nature alongside worlds largest mangrove forest Sundarban. A bit distant from capital Dhaka, around 10 hours by bus, which might be shorter in near future after commissioning of several bridges, has got tremendous potential of tourism. Other than a pleasant beach,several... More

The sea here is filled with fishing activities more. One can also experience lots of sea food here in kuakata. During my visit the sea was very calm but... More
