The lagoon connects to the Indian Ocean at two particular points, both of which are fairly small and are only about two-hundred metres wide.
The lush mangrove swamps that are located within the lagoon make it an ideal destination for bird-watching since there are many intriguing species of winged-creates to be found here.
A visit to the lagoon is a great way to witness some of the cultural industries of Sri Lanka. Enveloping this beautiful body of water are many paddy-fields for rice cultivation as well as coconut-farms in equal number. Within the lagoon you will easily find many shrimp farms as well.
Perhaps the most famous attribute of Batticaloa are the singing fish that are famous throughout Sri Lanka. The phenomenon once attracted the attention of the BBC radio network. In a certain area, if one were to listen closely, one would hear musical sounds created by a specific species of fish said to exist there.
If you’re seeking a unique and unforgettable tropical adventure, then a trip to Batticaloa lagoon might just be the thing for you.
