North Western Province Alankuda Beach, Kalpitiya


Slowly developing as a tourist attraction, the Alankuda beach is a complete fun-filled wonderland! As many beach resorts, guesthouses and rentable bungalows emerge by the coast, various other recreational facilities are already in full swing. Majorly popular for dolphin and whale spotting, visitors can take one of the many boat tours available from the beach, to go just a little further from the coast and watch schools of dolphins frolicking in the water, while the gigantic whales peacefully swim around. In other water sports, kite-surfing and speed boat riding are perfect ways to get an adrenaline rush.

A little up the coast is a beautiful reef where scuba divers and snorkelers can explore Sri Lanka’s coral garden. One must definitely sign up for a thrilling catamaran ride, which are 14 feet long boats that can sail at extremely fast speeds, cutting through the ocean winds. Meanwhile, on the beach, tourists can enjoy the sun while playing volleyball, or relax under shady cabanas. At the Alankuda Beach Club, one can book water sports, or lie back to sip on a cocktail and watch the others. The beach resorts have a plethora of activities, including lovely pools and massage services. Cycle renting is also an option, where one can roam around the beach or in the nearby areas. Therefore, Alankuda Beach has something for everyone, and is a place that one must definitely visit!
