A memorable trip with my college friends. Near to daimond harbour. You can get direct bus from esplanade. Solo trip is not recommended. Should visit in group. The place is really nice.

Calm and quite place. Very few people. Henry island beach is very nice. Bakkhali beach is not existent. Very few places to eat. And not much to do other visiting beaches. Best for a group of people for 1-2 days stay.
