Wadduwa the small seaside town
By D. Ekanayake
A island that is shaped like a teardrop,rising from the deep waters of the Indian Ocean, Sri Lanka is indeed a rich land that holds many hidden secrets. A 2500 year old written history simply backs it by adding the mythical and the magical ancient archaeological remains.
The land of legends, kings and warriors which now, gives home to a plethora of ethnicities, cultures, and languages. The thick jungles,golden sandy beaches and the chill mountain plains,truely adds the seasonal vibes.
The southern coastal line starts from wadduwa and this little town has more to offer than what you can imagine. Surprisingly wadduwa is just 70 to 90 minute drive from the Colombo airport.
Wadduwa may not be as commercialised or popular as other cities in Sri Lanka, but don’t let that fool you. It is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful tourist destinations that is worth the visit.
Wadduwa is a great first choice to add in you’re itinerary. If you love seafood this is heaven for fresh off the boat seafood experience.
The seaview accommodation is quite affordable and you can simply spend a day in a family suite as low as 75 usd per day on bb per person.Speaking to the owner of blue beach hotel wadduwa,made me realize the western shores of Sri Lanka has more to offer.
The rooms come with seaview balconies, and the hotel is offering amazing packages for the digital nomads.
Bluebeach hotel wadduwa has its own in-house ayurvedic spa and swimming pool with a jacuzzi that offers you the comfort of your own private beach is definitely a day well spend in waters.
