Kalutara Beach, Kalutara
(2.3/5 based on 300+ reviews on the web)
An hour drive from Colombo, Kalutara Beach provides a huge stretch of fine rust-colored sand set over a background of vast blue sea. Clean and occasionally rough with sudden large waves appearing out of nowhere, the beach makes a good spot for board surfers and catamaran goers. Swimmers, however, should take extra caution and observe any posted red flags. You can join fishers drawing in their nets, and look for turtles. Onsite outfits offer elephant tours and monkey photos; you can also explore the many rivers by boat, but be aware of the crocodiles. Prepare for disorganized parking and a lack of public restrooms. Add Kalutara Beach and other attractions to your Kalutara trip itinerary using our Kalutara trip generator.

  • Had been there with my wife recently and noticed that this beach is very clean and neat with no litter of garbage thrown anywhere.Had been there at sunset and enjoyed the sunset as always by the beach...  more »
  • Luxurious beach with large yellow sand. Very few people, only visitors from hotels. Had a rest in the Kalutara prison in late November, almost always had a very strong first wave, towards the end of the holiday. Keep in mind that travelers are not able to swim, and small children would be dangerous is in the ocean. But if you have a good grasp on the water, get a great deal of fun, swinging and jumping on the waves! Over there, but carries out along the shoreline, rather than in the ocean. The water is clean, on the beach near the hotels clean, if slightly deviate away, you can meet and trash. On the beach there are many cafes and massage, at prices cheaper than a hotel.

  • Sandy Beach, sun beds near the hotel for fence, often big waves. But Russian bathe despite red flags.
