Sonadia Island, a small island of nine square kilometers of Cox’s Bazaar, is a sanctuary for migratory birds such as petrels, snipes, shanks, lapwings, geese, ducks and other waterfowls. A number of rare species of marine lives such as green turtles and red crabs can be seen here. The island is the biggest dry fish producer of the country, where interested tourists will get the opportunity to know the process of drying fish.
Sonadia Island is surrounded by the sea beach on the three sides. On the other hand, the natural small trees, canals, and different types of birds and sea-animals have made the place unique and attractive. In addition, the island is called the heaven of birds. Some of the birds are Petrels, Snipe, Greenshank, Teether, and various kinds of duck. Notably, people started to live here only 100-150 years ago.
If you like to visit the Island, you have to reach Maheshkhali Ghat or Kasturi Ghat of Cox’s Bazar. Speed Boats and Trawlers are available to go to the Island.
