St. Martin’s Island

St. Martin’s Island, which is also called by the local people of the island is “Narical Gingira/Narikel Jinjera’. This is the only coral island in Bangladesh. From Cox bazar you have to take a car or bus to Teknaf, there is a boat terminal in Teknaf. you can purchase the boat ticket from that ticket counter. No need to buy in advance or from online.

Best time to visit St. Martin’s Island

November to March is the best time to go here. You can also visit the island another time of the year. You have to take a local small boat. Which is very risky. Moreover, the sea is rough other times of the year. If you have a strong heart and looking for some adventure, you can try the local boat which is very small.

Things to do in St. Martin’s Island

Well, there is nothing much to do other than enjoying a quiet and peaceful place with an amazing view. You will feel isolated from the whole world sometime. There is a full mobile network. However, There is no electricity plant. So all the hotels run generators for electricity. They only supply electricity a few hours of the day time and a few hours of the night time. If you travel from November to March. It is the winter season. Therefore, electricity won’t be a problem. But mosquito will be there year round. So keep your insect repellent with you all the time and use a power bank.

Sunset at St. Martin Island

What to eat in St. Martin’s Island

Enjoy the moonlight 8 kilometers away from the mainland where no electricity till now. So it is kind of peaceful at night. However, if you are a foodie, this place is heaven for dry fish and fresh fish lovers. You will find a lot of fish selling for a very cheap price by locals. In less than USD $ 2, you get a big full fish BBQ/curry/fry with unlimited rice and vegetables. Just choose the fish from the display and tell them how you want it. In conclusion, you will love those freshly cooked fish from the ocean.

Transport in St. Martin Island

St. Martin island is only 8 km2 with 4000+ people in it. You can explore the whole island on foot. But you can also rent a bike for an hourly basis. It will cost you less than USD $1 per hour for rent bikes. However, we recommend exploring on foot. In addition, There is another small island near it which you can go by foot or boat also. Chera dip, it is just a small part of this main island. But no car or bike can go there. Because the connection between this island is always under water sometime more sometime less. but you can go there by foot if you are ok to get wet in the water.

Follow the warning sign when visiting St. Martin’s Island island. This island has a spot where people die because of RIP CURRENT. So, avoid that spot and stay on the safe side of the beach.
