If you want to hangout with friends in chittagong, the first choice I will suggest you is the daughter of sea Potenga. Potenga sea beach is one of the most beautiful places in Chittagong District. It is about 14/15 km away from main city.
(yaa, it's me.. enjoying beach)
It is located at the mouth of the river Karnafuli as well as besides chittagong port. From city, this is the nearest Sea Beach and the best nearest open space where you can spend some good times with friends and family. Every holiday many people come here and spend there weekend.
Patenga is a very famous tourist destination in Chittagong city. A few days ago, the road to this beach was not well developed. But as the number of tourists is increasing day by day, the government considered it's priority and recently there is done a huge improvement work in potenga beach area by the authorities.

The beach is very near to the Bangladesh Naval Academy and Shah Amanat International Airport. A part of the seashore is built-up with concrete walls, and a lot of large blocks of stones have been laid to prevent erosion due to consistent waves on the beach.
