Although the A3 stays close to the coast, there are few ocean views from the road. Rather, you’ll pass through an endless series of coconut plantations, which have their own rhythmic beauty. Roughly halfway between Negombo and Kalpitiya, Chilaw has a strong Roman Catholic flavor and has elaborate statues of religious figures and local cardinals in the centre.Munneswaram, 5km to the east of Chilaw, has a rather interesting Hindu temple that is an important center of pilgrimage. There are three shrines at this complex; the central one is dedicated to Shiva. A major festival also featuring fire walking occurs here in August.The tiny village of Udappuwa, 12 kilometers north of Chilaw, has a hectic morning fish market and an important Hindu temple with a large gorpum. A colorful festival is held here in August, when devotees test their strength by walking on red-hot coals.Buses are frequent all along the A3.
