Kalutara Beach, Kalutara

2.3
#3 of 14 in Outdoors in Kalutara
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.
