Amaya Beach

Overview

Known to have one of the longest stretches of shallow coastline in the world, the coastal community of Passikudah is about 35km Northwest of Batticaloa. The resort, which is on the east side of the island, is about five hours away from Colombo by road. But what draws tourists to this location is Passikudah’s bay which is truly magnificent and is protected by a reef that runs across making it one of the safest and calmest stretches of coastline in the east. The reef is home to lovely coral formations and reef fish with dotted palmyrah trees with sand so soft it almost disappears in your hands.

A few minutes further away is White Rock, where at a depth of 16 metres can be found parrot fish, fusilier, trevally, sweetlips, emperor and bannerfish. At Marrakkala Gala, diving to depths of 20 metres will reveal schools of rainbow runners who inquisitively follow divers around the rock. There are two wreck sites within easy reach of the resort.
