I have visited Saint Martin Island on 21st December 2023, and it’s truly a gem. It’s the only coral island in the country and it’s quite small, just 17 square kilometers. It’s a bit of a journey from Cox’s Bazar, about 120 kilometers, but totally worth it.
Locals sometimes call it coconut Jinjira or narical gingira, which I think adds to its charm. When I got there, the first thing that struck me was how the blue of the sea matched the sky. It’s ringed with coconut trees, giving it this postcard-perfect look that you can’t help but fall in love with.
Visiting Saint Martin Island was an unforgettable experience. The beaches are clean and untouched, the wildlife is fascinating, and the culture is something unique.
If you’re thinking about where to go for your next trip, I’d definitely recommend this beautiful island. It’s a slice of paradise where you can create some amazing memories.
