Pasikuda is well known for having one of the longest stretches of shallow reef coastline in the world. You will be able to walk kilometers into the sea because the water is only a few inches deep and the current is relatively weak compared to the rest of Sri Lanka’s coasts. Passikudah is famed for its beach as well as its fabulous resorts. Passikudah consists of a crescent shaped bay of white sand which is surrounded by shallow, calm and clear aquamarine blue water. Its offshore reef helps to shelter this sandy beach making it the perfect place for water sports such as windsurfing and water-skiing. Boat rides, fishing and snorkeling are some of the other activities on offer. Passikudah also consists of some fabulous hotels and resorts which are idyllic places for rest and recreation.
