Calm and quite place. Very few people. Henry island beach is very nice. Bakkhali beach is not existent. Very few places to eat. And not much to do other visiting beaches. Best for a group of people for 1-2 days stay.

Recently we (5 friends) visited this place. No such attractive things are there but still you can go with your friends or family. We have stayed at Hotel Bay View, food is good comparing to price.
