Hiriketiya Beach

This long sandy beach is largely protected by headlands, reefs and sand-bars, making it safer for swimming. The headlands have reefs along their rocks, close to the beach. At both the Pehambiya end and the western end, swimmers can snorkel out from the beach to watch colorful reef fish among-st the rocks. Local inshore fishermen, especially at the sheltered Pehambiya end, mostly use colorful small Oru outrigger canoes which are easier to manoeuvre over the seasonal shifting sand-bars

Unawatuna Beach

Unawatuna is a coastal town in Galle district of Sri Lanka. Unawatuna is a major tourist attraction in Sri Lanka and known for its beach and corals. It is a suburb of Galle, about 5 kilometres (3.1 mi) southeast to the city center and approximately 108 kilometres (67 mi) south of Colombo. Unawatuna is situated at an elevation of 5 metres (16 ft) above the sea level. Despite significant development in the last decade it is still home to the endangered and endemic purple-faced langur, a usually shy monkey species that can only be found in Sri Lanka’s forests. The remnant population in Unawatuna needs to be recognised and the remaining forest cover should be protected to preserve this beautiful creature.

Passikudah Beach

Passekudah or Pasikuda is a coastal resort town located 35 kilometers northwest of Batticaloa, Batticaloa District, Sri Lanka. Historically a small Tamil hamlet alongside nearby Kalkudah, it now forms the sibling town of Kalkudah. The bay with the reef which runs at least 1 km from the shore, allowing shallow water bathing in a huge area, is amongst the best of the island in the summer season (April-October), competing with the Nilaveli/Uppuveli beaches of Trincomalee. ‘Passi’ as it is commonly called is even better than those beaches for swimming and snorkelling from shore, and also offers excellent dive trips. However the options for excursions are limited
