If a big part of your Sri Lankan holiday revolves around the local beach life, you can breathe a sigh of relief. Wadduwa’s strip of golden sandy beaches is well worth writing home about. In fact, the shores here are said to be one of the most beautiful in the region, envied for its long sandy curve and gin-clear seas. It’s also home to thousands of palm trees, which always provide a welcome shade – and of course, a picturesque sight for a memorable beach holiday in the tropical island of Sri Lanka. It’s not all about sunbathing here, though.
The surrounding waters of Wadduwa is ideal for water sports like Windsurfing, and on terra firma, you’ve got games like beach volleyball going on. And as Wadduwa is still a working fishing village, nothing beats a stroll down to the boats as the fishermen bring in the day’s catches. If you want a spell away from the sand, you’ll find enough distractions to keep you occupied here. The train from Wadduwa takes you right along the coastline and has plenty of impressive Kodak moments along the way. You can enjoy a day in the buzzing capital of Colombo, which lies just 35 kilometers to your north or a day in the historically city of Galle which is about 90 kilometers away towards the south. Of course, you could just stay in Wadduwa and soak up the culture. You’ll find a real pick and mix of shops, many selling traditional Sri Lankan handicrafts such as fierce-looking masks and colorful wood carvings.
