Jambu Dwip Overview

Ranked 2 of 8 sightseeing in Bakkhali

Visitors can reach Jambu Dweep just 8 km from Bakkhali by a boat ride. This southern-most island remains uninhabited for few months as it goes underwater during that time. Once it resurfaces, temporary houses are built by fishermen. This is basically a Reserve Forest covering an area of 1950 hectares, which is home to many water birds and covered by mangrove trees. Apart from the human habitation, a common sight is mud crabs. Generally a motorised state boat takes approx 40 minutes to reach Jambu Dwip from Frazerganj Fishing Harbour.

A memorable boat ride to Jambu Dwip

You can book a motor boat from the harbour for a visit to the Jambu Dwip, about 1 hour journey. While on the go, you can also watch other islands which are a bonus. The Jambu Dwip remains closed for tourists most of the time but the history of the place from the guide will be a good replacement. If you are not very much interested, then you can skip the trip. The military do not allow general tourists to enter even the vicinity of the island.

The journey is awesome and unforgettable

The journey in country boat from Fraserganj to Jambu Dwip is just fabulous and unforgettable. It takes around two hours to reach the island by a boat. Now tourists are not allowed to drop in the island, you can only reach near the island and then head back. Do not forget to take drinking water and snacks with you in the boat.

Virgin Island

The journey to this untouched island by human is simply awesome. You have to book boats from Frasergunj harbour.
