Kalutara

Trip Planner Asia  /  Sri Lanka  /  Western Province  /  Kalutara
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. Kalutara is in Western Province.

Where to stay in Kalutara

Beach resorts dominate in Kalutara, with a selection of large, luxurious options pressed right up against the coast. Most of these expansive resorts offer swimming pools, restaurants, and a range of amenities to complement their natural surroundings. If you're looking for something more budget-friendly, cast your eye a few streets back from the beach to find basic guesthouses, which offer little in the way of amenities, but plenty in terms of rustic charm and friendliness.
