facing south of Bangladesh is 70 km from Patuakhali District Headquarters and 320 km from the capital city of Dhaka. Here on the Bay, nature left to nature is the up coming tourist hamlet of Kuakata with cool and kind holidaying kiss. Fascinating name Kua (well), Kata (dug) was perhaps given to it by the earliest Rakhyen settlers from Kingdom of Arakan who land marked the place by digging a well. Fabled curative qualities of well-waters of Kuakata are still a matter of “willing suspension of disbelief.” Fascinating still more is the sight of the sun at down rising from the depths of the sea and sinking into the same at dusk, seen standing at the same point.
