Saint Martin

saint_martinThe only coral island of Bangladesh, Saint Martin’s Island is quite small and it embraces about 8 square kilometers of the land area. Located close to Chhera Island, it was first named as Zajira by some unknown Arabian sailors.

The present name ‘Saint Martin’s Island’ came into existence during the rule of British. Sunrise and sunset, exotic village life, sea turtle hatchery, coral rocks, and plentiful stars at night are some most cherished attractions here. Fishing, oceanic scuba diving, and walk by the sea beach are some fascinating activities here.
