As the name suggests, Pasikuda is a beautiful stretch of beach on the eastern coastline of Sri Lanka, where the waters are a turquoise green colour because of the unique green algae in the area. If you’re planning your next trip here, here are some things you definitely need to add to your bucket list.
The best way to see the beautiful Pasikuda coastline is to take a sunset cruise. You can find a cruise leaving Pasikuda every from April to September. The whole journey lasts for about 3 hours, making it the perfect excursion for your whole family. Most cruises are perfectly safe for children and are spacious enough for them to run around in. If you prefer, you can even arrange for a biking trip where you will be provided with a tour guide and water.
Sailing and snorkelling
If you’ve ever been sailing, you would know the serenity and adventure of the experience. If you catch a sailboat tour here in Pasikuda, you can enjoy a really amazing time with your family and friends without the noise of engines, pollution and the rush of traffic. You can involve your kids too, but make sure you carry plenty of sunscreen and water to keep them protected from the sun.
Sail to Sallitivu Island
The Sallitivu Island is a few miles away from the shore and can be easily reached from many Pasikuda hotels. Some cruises even offer a fresh dinner prepared on board, but you can even organize a boat ride to the island and spend a day there. It is a serene island, uninhabited by humans. You can enjoy a lovely day hearing nothing but the waves and gulls.
East Coast Island Cruise
If you want to see the whole east coast in a nutshell, your best choice would be an east coast island cruise. You can take a one-day trip or break the journey into two days. You can sunbathe in the white sands and feel the blue waves crashing underneath your bare feet. Soak up the sunlight, make sandcastles with your little ones and head back to your luxury resort such as the Maalu Maalu Resorts and Spas.
