Located along the south coast of Sri Lanka, the city of Kalutara is an ideal place for a family holiday and here are some of the many things you can do with them.
Spend Time at the Beach
The beach is a place parents and kids can both enjoy, and this is certainly true in Kalutara. Resort options by the shore are perfect for such a getaway and the kids will love spending time on the shore, building sandcastles, playing games and having a picnic too.
Experience Fun Activities
There is much to enjoy both on land and the water. Properties the likes of Avani Kalutara Resort provide guests access to activities like zip-lining, abseiling and rock climb which are quite fun indeed. Of course, there are plenty of water sports to try too such as snorkelling, stand-up paddleboarding and banana boat rides.
Embark on River Safaris
The Kalu Ganga is a river that runs through the city into the sea and is also an ideal waterway in which to head off on a cruise or safari. On your journey, the kids are bound to be captivated by various bird sightings and may get to see some traditional fishing too.
Cycling & Tuk-tuk Tours
A great way to enjoy some family adventures is to try pedal-powered sightseeing via a cycling tour to visit attractions such as the Kalutara Bodhiya, the Thudugala Waterfall and Richmond Castle. An alternative to this would be to take tuk-tuk tours which are just as exciting.
