Hikkaduwa Beach

 On Day 2 we left for Hikkaduwa beach, which is one of the best beaches in Sri Lanka and is famous for snorkeling and diving. This beach did live upto its expectations.We did snorkeling and saw various fishes and a huge turtle as well, clarity of the water wasn't at its best due to rains but i would recommend this to everyone. In fact if possible, go for diving instead of snorkeling as you get to see a whole new world when you dive deep.

Unawatuna Beach

Unawatuna Beach in Southern Sri Lanka, known for it's biodiversity and corals, was once listed among the top ten best beaches in the world; until the recent Tsunami in 2004 destroyed much of the corals and beach side restaurants.

Mirissa Beach

Day 2: Travel to Mirissa for Marine Safari. It starts at 7 am and can last untill 1 pm. You may view the magnificent blue whale if you are lucky. Safari can cause sea sickness and hence take necessary precautions.

Mount Lavinia Beach

I did not find anything of interest in Colombo, except the quiet beach at Mt Lavinia. There are a couple places that serve really good seafood, It is not exactly cheap though.Sri Lanka is rich in culture. The food has similarities with south India, but the use of coconut is abundant. They make damn good fish curries which goes really well with the flat grained rice they serve. Transport is slow, so factor this in when you make plans. Average road speed when we travelled out of Kandy would have been around 35 kmph. Trains are slow too. But it is cheap.Check out the pictures in the album. Advice: do spend at least a week and see more places. Head up north, the white sand beaches are exotic. For me, there is always a next time. Keep those feet busy, fellow travellers.

Passikudah Beach

A back breaking 300km or 10 hour journey bought us to a tiny village in the east coast of Sri Lanka. Up until 2009, Passikudah was in the hands of the Tamil Tiger rebels having been completely cut off from the rest of the world. Today Passikudah is tipped as being Sri Lanka’s answer to the upscale Nusa Dua with luxury 5 star properties already dotting the beach which many (including me) consider to be one of the best in Sri Lanka. Powdery white sands, gentle turquoise waters allowing you to swim up to a kilometer in & fantastic coral reef( destroyed closer to shore unfortunately) makes this a top draw. Visit now before it also gets commercially exploited. There is no nightlife to speak off so dinners are mainly restricted to the resorts.

Jungle Beach

After galle fort we went to jungle beach on the way to mirissa. It like you have to trek through jungle for about 1-2 km. to reach the beach. This is a nice beach.

Pasikuda Beach

On morning of 4th August we took bus for pasikuda as we have booking for sea diving near pasikuda beach. We reached pasikuda took accommodation for 2500 slr for 3. Pasikuda is also a very nice beach.Today in this hotel we met one french couple. We sat fir dinner together as we cooked our dinner with lots of spices like Indian food. And french couple were also looking for some very spicy food. So they joined us in hotel. We exchange good words. Understood each other lifestyle. Invited them to come to India. It was really nice to meet people like them. Really enjoyed with them.
