Passekudah And Kalkudah City


Both are wonderful beach destinations located north of Batticoloa on the east coast of the island and can easily be reached via Trincomalee, Polonnaruwa, and Batticoloa. These two coastal resort towns were affected by the 30-year civil war and also by the 2004 Asian tsunami both of which impacted greatly on public life and infrastructure of the island. The civil war left these towns hidden away from both local and foreign tourists for over three decades.


Passekudah is renowned for its long-stretched shallow coastline which is also considered as one of the longest in the world. You could walk in the sea as much as you like for kilometres into the water since the sea is shallow and free from currents. Located a few kilometers from Passekudah, Kalkudahis also a small resort town blessed with a palm-fringed beach of stunning beauty. With the dawn of peace to the war-torn island, the two destinations are booming as top destinations on the east coast of Sri Lanka.
