Kuakata, locally known as Sagar Kannya or Daughter of the Sea is a scenic beauty-spot in southern Bangladesh. The name Kuakata originated from the kua-wells dug on the seashore for collecting drinking water by the early Rakhine settlers of Arakan descent. Kuakata’s unique combination of pristine sandy beaches bordered by the Bay of Bengal, patches of mangrove trees withstanding the perpetual forces of the tides and the ethnic diversity most prominently visible during the annual religious festivals and pilgrimages make this special place worth exploring.
Kuakata is located about 71 km south of the sea-queen district of Patuakhali, facing the Bay of Bengal. It is accessible by road or water from Dhaka. The beach is about 18 km long and 3 km width elongated east-westward from where both sun-rise and sun-set can be seen.
