Activities

LEISURE

The resort town of Kalutara and the surrounding area has diverse attractions to discover. Visit the famous Kalutara Temple – the only Buddhist shrine in the world which is completely hollow inside, where a sequence of 74 intricately drawn murals adorns the walls. Take a trip to Richmond Castle, where colonial architectural opulence is displayed in its exquisitely carved 99 doors and 34 windows. For a taste of true coastal trade, wait for the morning catch at the Fishing harbour and watch the bartering first hand. Or see the giants of the ocean on a whale watching trip to Mirissa, further south.

Take a look at the many traditional industries of the area such as wood carving, soft basketry or venture out to visit Rubber or Tea plantations further afield.  If nature and conservation is your interest, the nearby Turtle Hatchery is a must, and the Bawa Botanical Garden is a horticultural delight. There’s much more, just ask us and we can fill your days with exciting excursions to suit your whims.
