Discover the neighborhoods of Pasikuda


On the eastern coast of Sri Lanka, the coastal resort town of Pasikuda is making a comeback as an attractive tourist destination. Tourism slid for several years due to the 2004 tsunami and the Sri Lankan Civil War which ended in 2009. But recent years have seen a revival with the return of peace and the rehabilitation of the area. It’s a seven-hour journey to the town across Sri Lanka from Colombo’s Bandaranaike International Airport, or a flight to China Bay Airport near the city of Trincomalee could be arranged.

The pristine beauty of Pasikuda has already begun to attract thousands of visitors despite its recent turbulent history. One of the world’s longest stretches of shallow coastline is found here. One can walk for kilometers into the sea with water remaining only a few inches deep. This destination is truly ideal for those who want to just lounge on the beach. Sail boat tours and strolling along Pasikudah Beach can be enjoyed, and Coconut Cultural Park is another top attraction. The nearby towns of Kalkudah, Trincolmalee, and Batticaloa are also within close enough proximity to be explored.

Budget accommodation and luxurious bliss round out the options when looking for a place to stay on this Sri Lankan gem. Be sure to check out the interactive map of Pasikuda for information on hotel locations, attractions, and must-see destinations.
