The northern parts of Sri Lanka remained less open to tourists in the past. However, in the post-war era, more and more tourists want to see this once forgotten part of the island. As a result, the north is building itself up to welcome all its visitors. If you are thinking of heading up north, and looking for places to stay there are plenty of newly emerging Jaffna Hotels. There are various cafes, restaurants and eateries that are coming up in the area. The main town and the interiors of Jaffna have some great places to see. There are also a group of islands which are worth a visit. One of the recognised options among the hotels is Jetwing Jaffna due to it’s central location.
If you want to move away from the town and explore the north a great way to do so is to pay a visit to one of the islands off the mainland of Jaffna. Delft island is one among them, known more fondly as Neduntivu by locals and came to be known as Delft island by the Dutch Colonisers.
The island is surrounded by shallow waters and-and there are few kinds of marine life around here as well. The vegetation around here is predominately those that belong to the semi-arid zone. The Dutch fort that was built here also still exists. This fort was built from dead coral chunks and the remains of it can still be found.
There is also the ruins of a Dagoba. A boat trip around the island will take you to a place known as “Meeting place of the seven Seas” where a whirlpool can be found. If you are lucky you may even spot a few whales swimming around.
