Attractions Of Cox’s Bazar

Cox’s Bazar

Worlds Largest Sea Beach,

(Bengali: কক্সবাজার, Kaksbajar) is a town, a fishing port and DISTRICT headquarters in Bangladesh. The beach in Cox’s Bazar is an unbroken 120  km sandy sea beach with a gentle slope, one of the world’s longest.It is located 150 km south of the industrial port Chittagong. Cox’s Bazar is also known by the name Panowa, whose literal translation means “yellow flower.” Its other old name was “Palongkee”.


The modern Cox’s Bazar derives its name from Captain Hiram Cox (died 1799), an officer of the British East India Company. Cox was appointed Superintendent of Palongkee outpost after Warren Hastings became Governor of Bengal. Captain Cox was specially mobilised to deal with a century-long conflict between Arakan refugees and local Rakhains. He embarked upon the task of rehabilitating refugees in the area and made significant progress. Captain Cox died in 1799 before he could finish his work. To commemorate his role in rehabilitation work, a market was established and named Cox’s Bazar (“Cox’s Market”) after him.

Today, Cox’s Bazar is one of the most-visited tourist destinations in Bangladesh, though it is not a major international tourist destination. In 2013, the Bangladesh Government formed the Tourist Police unit to better protect local and foreign tourists, as well as to look after the nature and wildlife in the tourist spots of Cox’s Bazar.
