Cox’s Bazar sea beach is the longest sea beach in the world, 120 km long.
For Bangladeshi’s it doesn’t get much better than Cox’s Bazar, the country’s most popular beach resort. Sort of a Cancun of the east, it’s choc-a-bloc with massive cement hotels and gaudy over-development catering largely to the country’s elite. As a foreigner it likely won’t compare to other beach vacations you may have taken, but it’s still interesting to see how the Bangladeshi’s live it up. The beach is crowded, especially near the Hotel Motel Zone, a large cluster of more upmarket hotels. Expect lots of attention, and expect to stay fully clothed.
30 km south is Inani Beach, the world’s longest and widest with over 100 miles of unbroken sand. Things should be quieter here, but still expect to draw some attention.
Located about 150 km south of Chittagong, Cox’s Bazar is connected both by air and road from Dhaka and Chittagong.
Daily non-stop flights are available from Chittagong and Dhaka on United Airways  or Regent . The journey by plane takes 60 minutes.
By bus it will take about 10-12 hours from Dhaka and 4-5 hours from Chittagong. Greenline, soda, Hanif, Shamoli and Baghdad AC bus services are available from Dhaka and Chittagong. AC bus will take BDT 1400-1800 from Dhaka to Cox’sbazar. Moreover, many Non-AC services are also available from Dhaka and Chittagong to this longest beach city.
The main bus terminal is a few kilometers east of the central town area, about a 15-20 minute / Tk 100-120 easy bike or CNG auto ride. Local buses head to Chittagong (Tk 120, 4 hours) and Teknaf (Tk 70, 3 hours).
The private bus companies have offices near Hotel Sea Queen on the main road, and also down in the Hotel Motel Zone.
