Kalutara Beach, Kalutara

(2.4/5 based on 380+ 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.

  • Were in late March-early April 2017. Clean beach, desert, sand, yellow-orange, the entrance to the ocean, apparently quite sharp waves washed sand. The beach is equipped with nothing, that is, just leave taplochki on shore (if walked out of the hotel) or all the stuff on the heap and into the ocean! But! Best to stay shore, jump on the waves and not go far, because waves are very big, strong, delay! Pleasant water temperature (degrees do not know), cooler than the pool clearly) red flag hung almost always (meaning that you cannot swim, although all bathed at your own risk). Private delight is swimming at sunset! very beautiful!

  • we stayed at Kalutara for a week, the beach is just great, broad, wild, kilometers of sand and very few people.  more »
  • The beach itself is not equipped with nothing more than no entertainment-entertainment places, people too little, sometimes it seemed that we alone among the ocean! The beach itself is not dirty. The ocean of dirty (in July) but straight hot and powerful! very cool breeze! the sun sets directly into the ocean, and a little to the side.
