Planning to visit Sri Lanka and want to know how to make the
best of your holiday? Check out this itinerary and explore the
best that the island has to offer in a short span of seven days!
Under two and a half hours from the Bandaranaike International Airport (140 kilometres via the A3) Sri Lanka’s best kitesurfing destination, Kalpitiya is also a popular spot for beach lovers and dolphin watching. This little town at the tip of the peninsula north of Puttalam is surrounded by the Dutch Bay and Puttalam Lagoon. Farther
to the north is a Dutch fort dating back to the
mid-17th century and an old Dutch church
a few metres away. Kalpitiya offers other fun
activities such as kayaking, windsurfing and
diving in the lagoon, as well as birdwatching
at the Anawilundawa Bird Sanctuary.
