"Enticing Seaside Resort Town"

Kalkudah Beach Tourism

Mostly a deserted island of its own, the name translates as rock bay in Tamil. The town features one of the most scenic beaches in Sri Lanka with its endless golden sands and the pristine turquoise waters. 

The northern edge of the cape boasts a curve-shaped Passekudah Beach with splendid white sands lined with luxury accommodations. Back in the days before the tsunami hit the Kalkudah Beach, the beach was dotted with plenty of tourist hotels and resorts. Since the tsunami, the beach has been deserted, mostly occupied by cows, dogs, and occasional fishers and boats. If visitors are looking for a more secluded beach encompassed by natural beauty, Kalkudah Beach should make it to the checklist.

Things to do in Kalkudah Beach

1. Coconut Cultural Park: Nestled behind the resorts, Coconut Cultural Park is dedicated to nothing but coconut trees that is solely linked to the country. This attraction is perfect for taking a stroll amid the trees and learning the uses of the coconut palm, including oil for cooking, coir rope and rugs, and much more. Along with coconut trees, the park also features papaya trees. 

2. Passekudah Beach: Featuring super shallow water that warms up during the sunny days, Passekudah Beach is perfect for a nice swim. But beware, as there are sharp corals nestled in the waters and the sand. The vast stretch of the beach also lines many resorts offering blissful views.
