March 24, 2020


The largest sea beach in the world is the Cox's Bazaar Sea Beach
Situated at the shore of the Bay of Bengal
To the most southern part of my country, Bangladesh
This sea-beach is around 120 kilometers long,

Every year many tourists come here
From home and abroad to enjoy its natural beauty
The scene of sunrise and sunset can be enjoyed from this beach
People collect sea-shells, pearls and more here

This is very fascinating and a great attraction
For all the beauty lovers,
It is a city, fishing port, tourism center
And district headquarters in southeastern Bangladesh,

The beach in Cox's Bazar is sandy and has a gentle slope
And with an unbroken length Of 155 km (96 mi)
It is often termed
The "longest natural unbroken sea beach" in the world

There many disputes over that claim
Since the Federal Republic of Brazil has over 4,500 miles
Of coastline on the South Atlantic which covers sand beaches
Such Copacabana in the State of Rio de Janeiro,

It is located 150 km (93 mi) south
Of the divisional headquarter of Chittagong
Cox's Bazar is also known by the name Panowa, which translates literally as "yellow flower", another old name was "Palongkee".

Of the Arakanese refugees in the area,
Captain Cox died in 1799 before he could finish his work to commemorate his role in rehabilitation work,
