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.
