Over the years, the number has grown steadily, and now there are several spellbinding camping sites in Bangladesh to cherish for the outdoor enthusiasts.
Top 10 Camping Destination in Bangladesh
Most of the places on the list offer lodging and hotels in and around the camping locations as well. But that’s not the main aim of camping. Travelers can take their camping gear with them. There are also rental options in certain locations.
St Martin or Chhera Dwip
St Martin is the perfect secluded location from the mainland for camping. It offers a unique mix of beaches, sand, sea, and sky. The mesmerizing blue water around the island is something to gaze at for hours. Chhera Dwip offers an even more natural and scenic feel as there is no establishment there. The complete immersion within nature makes it a perfect camping spot. However, due to its ecological importance, the government restricts camping in certain parts of St Martin. Be sure to check with the local authority before putting up tents.
Inani is situated in a more remote area of Cox’s Bazar. Most of the hotels, motels and access to Cox’s Bazar city are in and around the main beach. As a result, Inani enjoys the company of most seasoned travelers. Needless to say, it receives much less crowd compared to the main beach, making it the perfect camping spot in Cox’s Bazar beach area. It is nestled between the mountains and the deep blue sea. Most people camp near the forest area under the hills. It is also possible to camp near Marine Drive along the beach. But due to security issues, it is better to inform the police beforehand.
Shahpori island is the southernmost unbroken landmass of Bangladesh. It is situated right in the mouth of the Naf River and is considered as a maritime boundary between Bangladesh and Myanmar.
The Island offers some of the best natural experiences in the winter. There aren’t many establishments in the area. Whatever there is, is around the jetty only. Seasoned campers will love the secluded immersion within nature. Almost every beach within the Shahpori island is great for camping. But the western beach is the best location considering the plain area and a breathtaking view of sunrise and sunset. Make sure to take proper camping gear as there aren’t any rental opportunities on this island.
