An island in the Bay of Bengal.
The deep waters of the Bay of Bengal all around. In the distance, one island after another and mangrove forests can be seen. It is like the union of green with water. In addition to the native birds, innumerable guest birds and smiles are flying one after the other and playing in the water. So the white buck team can be left behind! They are also flying and fishing. At this time of winter, there is no calculation of the number of guest birds, hawks and deer. The name of the place is Sonarchar. It is located in the middle of the Bay of Bengal in Rangabali upazila of Patuakhali district.
From Charkukari in the morning we set off in a small boat to see the guest birds, the mangrove forests of the various islands, the estuary of the Meghna River, the fishermen’s fishing and the waves of the Bay of Bengal. Seeing so many things together, my mind was filled with joy. Sonarchar has a beautiful sea beach, much of which is covered with green algae carpets. Undoubtedly, the sea beach, which is rich in various plants as well as the magnificent Zhaoban, will captivate the mind. As well as the magnificent view of the sunset can be seen from here. It is safe to say that those who like solitude will enjoy the island as there are very few tourists and no locality nearby. So if you want you can come back to be a goldsmith.
