Kalutara

4.3
Beaches · Dolphin & Whale Watching · Sacred & Religious Sites
A popular beachside getaway just an hour south of Colombo, Kalutara is as recognizable for its enormous white Buddhist stupa as for its inviting white-sand beaches. Protected by a narrow spit of land forming a small bay, the town of around 40,000 offers some of the best beaches on Sri Lanka's west coast, with easy access to both Colombo and Galle also helping boost Kalutara tourism. With its distinctive bridge, colonial-era fort, and a well-preserved two-story mansion to complement the large stupa, there's no shortage of attractions in Kalutara. In the build up to your vacation in Kalutara, plan trip itinerary minutiae using the visitor reviews, staff write-ups, and custom search fields on our Sri Lanka trip tool.
