Sitakunda Upazila of Chittagong district is considered an attractive place for tourists for various reasons. Sitakunda, green land of natural beauty, has endless eye-catching Chandranath hills, eco-parks, winding mountain paths surrounded by green forests, and picturesque views of the hilly lakes. A few days ago, a new tourist destination was added to the previous list, and that is Bashbaria Sea Beach.
Banshbaria Bazar is a small market on the Dhaka-Chittagong highway, 25 km north of Chittagong city. Through this market, you can reach Banshbaria beach in just 15 minutes by way of a narrow pitch. The main attraction of this beach is that you can walk under the sea for more than half a kilometer. Although everyone calls it the sea, Google shows it as a canal. But there are big waves like the sea. You can come here and walk around without any hindrance, you can get the beauty of nature. Rows and rows of Zhou trees in the Zhou Garden and the newly awakened huge sand field, all in all, a wonderful beauty awaits the visitors.
