If you are planning a holiday getaway for the weekend (or any other time during the week!), here are some reasons why Kalpitiya in Sri Lanka should be your choice.
Nestled along the north-western coastline, Kalpitiya offers the perfect beachside escape with a selection of family resorts in Sri Lanka that are ideal for romantic retreats too. You can look forward to spending time lazing or playing on the beach, dining beside the ocean and just chilling out while soaking up the sun.
If you want more action on your holiday, there are plenty of water as well; in fact, Kalpitiya is the premier destination for kitesurfing in Sri Lanka (May to October). Other thrilling activities you can try while at local properties such as Dolphin Beach Resort include snorkelling, stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, jet skiing, water skiing, fishing and donut rides
Dolphin & Whale Watching
Depending on when you visit Kalpitiya, dolphin and whale watching can be enjoyed too. From October till around March you have a great chance of seeing large pods of spinner dolphins as well as bottlenose, striped and spotted dolphins too. In between November and April, you may spot majestic blue, sperm and melon-headed whales too.
The soothing coastal environs are also ideal to experience some rejuvenating wellness treatments. Resorts that provide authentic Ayurveda rituals can be found along with massage therapies and yoga which will help you find true inner balance.
