Passekudah Beach

The East

With the resorts stretching into the distance, Passekudah's extremely shallow water heats up to bathtub temperatures on sunny days (you'll have to wade out some distance for a good swim). There's also lots of sharp coral mixed in with the sand, so take care if barefoot. On weekends, the public beach at the south end draws busloads of locals ready to buy sugary treats and have a frolicsome day out.
