  • A very pretty small shaded road leads to the lighthouse restored by the Americans after the tsunami. Before we get there along a lovely little Bay where colorful canoes delight of photographers. You can buy fresh fish and shrimp plush. Not very friendly fishermen.

  • You can't go inside the lighthouse but it adds a nice historical view. There is a small island nearby and you can go there by a boat and have a nice time in the evening.  more »
  • Awesome place. Reminder of the old Portuguese days -sobering reminders of the tsunami and a very pleasant boat trip out on the lagoon. Loved the palmy rah showroom  more »

  • Famous place in batticaloa and situated near the estuary in Palameenmadu, was built in 1913 and is 28 meters high.
  • Batticaloa Lighthouse, is a lighthouse in Sri Lanka, situated near the estuary in Palameenmadu, was built in 1913and is 28 meters high.
  • Batticaloa light house is situated in a ideal place near the place called. Estuary,which is 2km away from the Batticaloa town. It was built in 1913's which is 28 meters in height and 27 meters in length. This place is surrounded by Palmyra trees and coconut trees which gives natural beauty to this place .Now it is govern by Port Authority and the Municipal council of Batticaloa. Recently they constructed a children's park to fascinates kids. It is the best place for both kids and elders .
  • An ideal place situated in Batticaloa to spend time with family or friends may be one whole day with some activities like boating, Kayaking, trekking in a sandy island where you can even walk across a lagoon (if water depths allows sometimes). You can have good time there.
  • This site is located quite a drive away from the centre of town but not so far as to be an issue. The lighthouse was built in 1913 and features prominently on the foreshore at its location. No access is available to the interior. Photos of the lagoon and ocean are great looking out to sea from this site. No cost. Recommended.
