Wadduwa, Sri Lanka

Wadduwa Holidays

Located on the west coast of Sri Lanka, Wadduwa has become more and more popular with holiday makers keen to experience one of the best beaches in Sri Lanka. The curve of pristine golden sand caressed by the crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean keeps pulling sun seekers back to Wadduwa. For the more adventurous, the surf is ideal for experiencing water sports although most will just want to spend their holiday sitting under Wadduwa?s many palm trees just breathing in this small corner of paradise.

Enjoy tranquil surroundings of a Wadduwa Holiday

If you can pull yourself away from under the palm trees there is a wealth to see and do. Wadduwa?s fishermen regularly bring in their fresh catch or travel a bit further a field and take a breathtaking train journey along the coastline. Back in Wadduwa village there is a selection of bars and restaurants as well as a number of shops and boutiques selling a range of jewellery and other traditional Sri Lankan souvenirs. If culture is more your thing then the town of Kalutara with it's hollow Buddha's is only a short distance away while Colombo is 35km to the north and easily accessible.
