Passekudah Beach

Lonely Planet review

Passekudah Beach is the most visited and at weekends you might find two or three carloads of local beachgoers hanging out. At the southern end of the beach, gaudy little fishing boats add splashes of colour to the stunning pale sands. Head north along the beach, past the LTTE-destroyed hotels, and it’ll be just you and the crabs making footprints. Swimming here is normally safe.
