Pasikudah

Powdery white sands, turquoise seas and a string of luxurious hotels and resorts all make Pasikuda a truly magical destination that is ideal for beach vacations. The crystal clear waters here are so inviting and the dazzling white sands so pristine that you will wonder if you have discovered a lost paradise.

The area offers plenty to do to keep you entertained. You can visit famous tourist attractions like Kallady Beach, Batticaloa Lighthouse and Kokkadicholai Hindu Temple. Unique souvenirs can also be found at Palmyrah handicraft outlets. If you wish to explore the enchanting ruins that showcase the golden glory of the island’s beautiful past, take a drive to the ancient city of Polonnaruwa. Wildlife enthusiasts can also opt to visit Minneriya National Park and witness the gentle giants of the jungles as they roam freely in their natural habitats.

The shallow coastline of Pasikuda Beach in Sri Lanka makes it quite appealing for sea lovers. Some say the beach has the longest stretch of shallow coastline in the world! The weak currents make the waters here quite safe for swimming too.

While Pasikuda has seen an increase in popularity in the recent past, it is still relatively less crowded than some of the beaches on the south coast. This factor serves as a motivation for those who desire privacy and seclusion during their holidays by this magical stretch of shore.
