A visit to Saint Martin
We first went to Teknaf and stayed in a hotel. After lunch we made a visit to the beach. The beach is long and sandy. Colorful boats on the beach castes a beautiful scene. 8ut the beach was comparatively empty. Very few people still prefer to come to Teknaf to enjoy the beach. The beach is also a little away from the town. The accommodation facilities also meager, recently stated to improve. On the way back to town, we shopped at he Barmeese market.
The next morning we started at 7 am for St. Martin in Keari Sindbad. There are half a dozen ships from Teknaf, the ferrighat is a little north of the town. Keari is quite good and professional. On the board we met some friends who were coming from Cox’s bazar. As keari was cutting through the water, we were enjoying the boundless water, ripples of the waves, flying of birds’ green lashes of trees on the banks,small fishing boats and people on the other ferries. The thick line of green trees could be seen on the distant shore of Myanmer. At one point we running for an hour, we entered into the deeper water as the Naf River merges with the sea. Our steamer started to swing with the waves of the ocean. The fade view of St. Martin could be seen in the south.
It took 2 & 1/2 hour to come to St. Martin from Teknaf ferrighat. We came out of the ship to the shore. St. Martin is a small but beautiful island in the deep of the sea at the southeast point of Bangladesh. You can give a round along the beach in an hour. The beach is wide, sea is quite and one can wet oneself at multiple points of the beach. One can also stay in the nights on the island to enjoy the night life and to hear the hissing sound of the sea through the night. Some may make an adventure to go to ‘Cheradip’ by trawler. St. Martin is basically a coral island. Though the
corals are decreasing in no, but one will see it when water recedes. Among the things one can purchase in St. Martin is fresh and dried fish of different kinds. We left St. Martin at 3 pm by Keari Cruise, the better one of Keari. The ship is more luxurious and comfortable. After reaching Teknaf, we left for Cox’sbazar by bus.
