  • There is little to do for tourists, although the fishermen on the beach (quantity) impressive! Hundreds of boats are ready or come back from fishing. There is a lot of activity. Also the end point, Talaimannar, is particularly to see. In one or two days you can have seen the sights of this island ... The baobab tree in Mannar. We found it quite apart that you on this peninsula, with so many fish, nowhere can eat fish! No seafood restaurant in sight.
