.: Sonadia Island
The sandy and the beds of oysters

Sonadia with an area of 9 sq km is a crescent shaped island to the north-west of Cox's Bazar and 7 km into the sea. Its western coast is sandy and is rich in different kinds of shells. Every winter thousands of fishermen camp here and make large hauls. The island is a centre of the dry fish industry. Another attraction of the island is the sight of game birds migrating here in great numbers during the winter season.
