Pasikuda, perhaps, is more famous for its splendid blue waters offering the most thrilling water-sport adventures, keeping that flow of adrenaline pulsating through your veins. However, there’s more of Pasikuda you can explore during a stay at a property such as Uga Bay.
Stroll along Batticaloa Lagoon
A humongous body of water that holds such mesmerising beauty that it’d leave first-timers open-mouthed, Batticaloa Lagoon is a must-visit during a stay at one of the luxury hotels in Pasikuda. Apart from its spectacular scenery, the lagoon also contributes to a flourishing ecosystem fuelled by the vibrant birds and other animals that draw their lifeblood from the area.
Visit Dutch Fort
Nestled amid lush greenery is an ancient structure that was built by the Portuguese during the colonial times in Sri Lanka. The fort features four bastions and is protected by the Batticaloa Lagoon and a canal from all sides. Although it is used to house several administrative departments of the Sri Lankan government at present, its beautiful architecture remains well-maintained.
Walk over to Coconut Cultural Park
Managed by the Coconut Development Board of Sri Lanka, the Coconut Cultural Park is a great place to enjoy a coconut ice-cream and learn about the many uses of coconut trees.
The Pasikuda bay area is hailed as the scuba divers’ paradise. HMS Hermes, the most famous diving site in Sri Lanka, is found in this area.
