Travellers Experience / Reviews about Kutubdia Island

Mamunur Rahman visited at: 2019-01-13

We travelled to Kutubdia island by a direct bus service from Chittagong to Mognama. You can also take a CNG from Chokoria. It's also a wise idea if you to hop into a Dhaka-Cox’s Bazar bus and drop at Chokoria Bazar. There is boat and speedboat costing 60 tk per petson taking only 10/15 minutes to go to Kutubdia jetty. Then we hired a rickshaw to wander around the place.

If you visit Kutubdia island, you're gonna love it. A while ago, we visited the whole island and enjoyed the magical sea view and natural beauty. We took photos and had sea foods there. We visited the ancient mosques there like Yusef Ali Miaji Masjid, Kalarma Masjid, Maharaja Kazir Masjid, and Tomb of Qutb Awliya and many more.

This Island is well-known to the tourists for the charming light-house here. This place will serve with divine beauty. The Bay of Bengal is just beside the place. This is a tiny place but full of mysterious natural beauty. The beach is very majestic. The sunset and sunrise are eye-catching. You can see the ways of producing salt here. This place needs more advertisement and media coverage.
