Pasikuda is a small coastal town on the east coast of Sri Lanka, and it is no exaggeration to say that it is home to one of the most beautiful beaches in the island. One of its enthralling features is that the sea is shallow for kilometers, allowing you to stroll for hours knee deep in its crystal blue waters, observing its beautiful marine life.
Things to do in Pasikuda
The golden sands and turquoise waters, stretch for miles and this is Pasikuda’s main attraction. This beautiful beach is naturally cordoned off by coral reefs, which makes it safe for swimming as the water is only knee deep for more than a kilometer.
The sea bed is full of enchanting colorful corals and marine life just waiting for you to explore, making snorkeling and diving must-do activities that are sure to hold you in awe.
North of Pasikuda beach is another stretch of beach covered with palm trees leading to a 2km wide bay named Kalkudah Bay. These waters just like those of Pasikudah are ideal for swimming and are well protected by the off-shore coral reefs.
