    but never try go kutubdiya after sunset coz security problem.
    the most famous is wind power plant with tranquil beach.
    u can visit the new light house wich is merely a mobile tower like structure.u can go kutub shahi mazar very big mazar area.
    the beach beside the light house is very nice and u hardly see any people.
    actually lonely beach.

    the area is not good for outsiders in dark–according to locals.
