Nestled along the coast in Sri Lanka’s Western Province, the idyllic getaway known as Kalpitiya is a perfect place to enjoy the sun, sand and surf as well as leisurely boat excursions on a lagoon. Before setting off on such adventures make sure you stay at one of the well placed Sri Lanka resorts in the region such as Palagama Beach Kalpitiya. An ideal base for your travels, this beach resort in Sri Lanka lets you enjoy the very best Kalpitiya has to offer.

Make sure to plan a boating trip along the Kalpitiya Lagoon, which is an ideal way to experience the area’s natural beauty and diversity. The lagoon which covers a total length of around 80 km is home to 14 small islands that you can visit. This water body is also where one will find a wide variety of mangroves which support a delicate ecosystem. Part of the lagoon even leads up to a portion of the Wilpattu National Park which is worth exploring for nature lovers. Fishing is an activity that can be enjoyed here, while those taking lagoon trips in Kalpitiya during the evenings can look forward to breathtaking sunsets too.
