Travelers seeking quintessential views of the Bay of Bengal will find them at Vatiary Lake. Located just outside Chittagong City, this incredible body of water is home to some the area’s best fishing—as well as some of its best views. Intrepid visitors can wander up to the much-storied Sunset Point and settle in for epic views of golden rays dipping down below the horizon. Organized boat trips, fishing lessons and well-worn winding roads perfect for biking make this a destination for nature lovers.
According to locals Vatiary Lake is at its peak between September and April. Travelers should plan to spend at least a couple of hours touring the area. A local café serves up tasty local food cuisine. Visitors can travel to the lake via a ferry from Sadarghat, a cycle‐rickshaw or a local taxi.
