Kuakata | Truly a Virgin Beach

A rare spellbinding beauty spot at the southern most tip of the Bangladesh in the district of Patuakhali. It has a wide sandy beach from where one can get the unique opportunity of seeing both the sunrise and sun setting.

It is located at a distance of 70 km from the district headquarters of Patuakhali, 320 km from Dhaka and 100 Km from Barishal Was named by the original Mogh (Rakhyne) Buddhist settlers whose ancestor remain today. Kua means ‘well' and kata means ‘dug'.Access to the area is difficult.

Kukata is truly a virgin beach – a sanctuary for migratory for birds a series of coconut trees, sandy beach of blue bay, a feast for eye. The unique customs and costumes of the ‘Rakhyne' tribal families and Buddhist temple of about hundred years are additional attractions.

The main tourist season is in winter but all over the year tourists visit this place. In Kuakata you can visit the life style of tribe Rakhains, who are very friendly to the tourist and visitors.
How To Go
The road between Kuakata and Barisal is not as good as that between Barisal and Dhaka, largely due to extensive renovations. There is a small, barely identifiable ticket office diagonally opposite the Parjatan Motel that sells tickets for the bus to Dhaka (14 hours, 277 km, and daily at 1 pm). You'd be wise to book a day ahead.
