Nestled along the east coast, the picturesque shoreline known as Pasikuda Beach offers the kind of escape that can be described as a true slice of paradise!
Planning Your Holiday
This coastal area is almost 300 km from the commercial capital, Colombo, and can be reached by car, train, bus or even domestic flights. In Pasikuda, beach resorts can easily be found right along the sand perfect for couples, families or friends, while Batticaloa and its attractions are only around 30 minutes away.
This 2 km beach stretch offers a picture postcard-like setting and is home to properties like Uga Bay by Uga Escapes. The protected bay features calm and shallow waters so you can walk quite far out to sea without fearing currents. It’s an ideal place for sunbathing, swimming and even catching a mesmerising sunrise.
The more active type can look forward to snorkelling and diving to witness diverse coral and marine life at places like the Pasikuda and Kayankerni reefs; divers can explore World War Two shipwrecks too! Kayaking, windsurfing, jet-skiing and private sailing tours are some of the other activities on offer as well.
The beach also provides the perfect backdrop for some truly memorable dining; some resorts will organise a yummy beachside seafood BBQ and even have sand furniture! The shore and the ocean also combine to offer the perfect backdrop for a romantic dinner under a myriad of stars.
