St. Martin’s Island is the only coral island in Bangladesh, which is a small island about 5 square kilometers southwest of the mainland and 525 km away from Cox’s Bazar District. According to local language, Saint Martin is also called “Narical Gingira”. The island is one of the most beautiful and attractive tourist spots in Bangladesh. The sea blue waters with blue skies, rows of coconut trees make the island unique.
There is a small attached island that is separated at high stream, which is known as “Chera Dwip”. Chera Dwip is an Island which is the latest point on the map of Bangladesh. On the south side, there is no other terrain in Bangladesh. This isolated island in the south has a lot of natural stones. About half of the island is submerged in sea water during tides. The area is declared by the government to be an “environment-threatening area”.
How to Go St. Martin’s Island from Dhaka:
To go to St. Martin’s you have to go to Teknaf first. From Dhaka you can go directly to Teknaf by bus.

From Cox’s Bazaar also you can go to Teknaf by renting a local bus or micro / zip. From Cox’s Bazar to Teknaf it takes about one to two hours to break the situation. From Teknaf to St Martin, every morning commute from Kutubdia, Kerry Sindbad, Eagle, Sundarbans, etc. There are also a number of trawlers and speedboats aboard this sea route. It takes two hours/two and a half hours to go from Teknaf to St Martin.
From the Jetty ferry, the ships leave for St. Martin’s at 3.30 am every day and return from St. Martin’s at 5.30/6:00 pm. So if the jetty cannot be present on time, the ship is likely to be missed. And in those cases, there is no way to get back in the trailer, which is dangerous. Those who spend the night at St. Martin’s have the opportunity to return the next day on a single ship, which is mentioned in the ticket in advance.
