The tourists and travelers who failed to secure rooms in the hotels have set up tents on the island to enjoy the beauty of Saint Martin’s under the open sky.


Akkas Miya, who travelled all the way from Panchagarh to visit the coral islands, says he had wished to visit for a very long time. “I came here to celebrate the last day of the year with my family.”
