ST. Martin Island
St. Martin's Island (Bengali: সেন্ট মার্টিন্স দ্বীপ) is a little island (region just 8 km2) in the northeastern part of the Bay of Bengal, around 9 km south of the tip of the Cox's Bazar-Teknaf promontory, and shaping the southernmost piece of Bangladesh. There is a little abutting island that is isolated at high tide, called Chhera island. It is around 8 km west of the northwest bank of Myanmar, at the mouth of the Naf River. The main settlement began only 250 years prior by some Arabian mariners who named the island 'Zajira'. Amid British occupation the island was named St. Martin Island. Amid the First Anglo-Burmese War between the British and Burmese realms in 1824–1826, rival cases to the island were a main consideration. The nearby names of the island are "Narical Gingira", likewise spelled "Narikel Jinjira/Jinjera", which signifies 'Coconut Island' in Bengali, and "Daruchini Dip". It is the only coral island of Bangladesh.

The majority of the island's roughly 3,700 occupants live essentially from angling. Moreover, the other staple products are rice and coconut. Being extremely basic in the island, green growth are gathered, then dried lastly traded to Myanmar. In the middle of October and April, the anglers from neighboring zones convey their got fishes to the island's makeshift wholesale market. However fares of chicken, meat and different sustenances do roll in from the terrain Bangladesh and Myanmar (Burma). As the inside and the south are fundamentally farmland and alternative cabins, a large portion of the changeless structures are around the most distant north of the island.

Amid the blustery season, in view of the unsafe conditions on the Bay of Bengal, the tenants have no extension to go to the territory (teknaf) and their life can get to be risky. There is currently a clinic on the island, however in the past there has frequently been no specialist.

The best way to achieve the spot is the water transportation i.e. water crafts and ships (for the most part for voyagers) from Teaknaf. Try not to hope to discover taxis, tarred streets or power here in the island. With the exception of the bigger lodgings that keep running on generators, there is no power supply from the national matrix in the island since a perilous tropical storm in the year 1999. The island is about sun, ocean and palm trees. Amid the day, the island wakes up with water and shoreline sports, with shoreline gatherings and blazes illuminating the night skies. 

From 1989 to 2004, non-private Bangladeshis and outsiders were the main individuals allowed on the island; notwithstanding, this has changed and now private Bangladeshis are permitted. St. Martin's Island has turned into a mainstream traveler spot. At present, five transportation liners run day by day treks to the island, including Shahid Sher Niabat, L C T Kutubdia, Eagle, Keari Cruise and Dine and Keari-Sindbad. Travelers can book their excursion either from Chittagong or from Cox's Bazar. The encompassing coral reef of the island has an augmentation named Chera Dwip. A little shrubbery arrives, which is the main green some portion of Chera Dwip, upgrading the excellence of this island. Individuals don't live on this part of the island, so it is prudent for the voyagers to go there ahead of schedule and return by evening.

In the previous five years St. Martin's guest populace has expanded drastically. While this circumstance has ended up being lucrative for the islanders, it is bringing about the normal excellence of the island to fall apart. In a matter of seconds there are numerous endeavors being advanced to safeguard the few jeopardized types of turtles that home on the island, and also the corals, some of which are discovered just on Narikel Jinjera. Bits of the coral reef are being uprooted to be sold to vacationers. Settling turtles are infrequently taken for nourishment, and their hatchlings are regularly diverted by the twinkling lights along the shoreline. Types of fish, a couple of just as of late found, are being overfished. Each year the anglers must wander farther to ocean to get their catch. The vast majority of them use motorless water crafts.

It is conceivable to stroll around the island in a day since it quantifies just 8 km2 (3 sq. mile), contracting to around 5 km2 (2 sq. mi) amid high tide. The island exists simply because of its coral base, so evacuation of that coral dangers disintegration of the shorelines. Due to this, St. Martin's has lost about 25% of its coral reef in the previous seven years.
