  • You cant access the light house only walk around it. But the beach there is nice and you can have boat rides and stuff there too. So plan more if you want to visit. otherwise not worth it. 
  • Very historical, we couldn't climb up as it was a holiday with hordes of people around. If parking could be arranged, it would sure be helpful 
  • Do not understand how he can stand and even more amazing work there inside, it smells deadly, you save something to see the view but very little, no!

  • 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.
