  • Beautiful environment. Sea is not rough. But it is heavily crowded in the evening. Good place for enjoying with family. Boats for coral watching is also available.

  • Nice beach where it's possible to see some giants turtles. It's quite sad though to see how local attract those turtles by feeding them and how turists get all over them, I was personally quite disappointed.

  • This beach is very popular beach on foreigners & civilians. Beautiful place for photos too

  • Previously one of the great destination for the watch coral reef and snorkeling. But with time being now there is no live coral reef except few patches. It costs LKR 2000/= per boat trip and USELESS spend because nothing to see there expect few catfish and only about 🔟 10min in the 🌊 sea. It is A DEAD CORAL REEF now. but not bad for take a bath 🛀 and sunbathing.

  • Beautiful beach.. Only 1 hour from colombo via southern expressway. Can snorkel and have a sunbath.
