Passikudah is situated in the east part of Sri Lanka about 35km from Batticaloa. It is well-known for its golden sandy bay and clean shallow waters in which you can wade roughly around 50m out to sea.
It was dormant for touristic activities with the adverse security situation due to the war. With the ‘Re-wakening of the East’ launched by the government with the termination of the problems, land was given to interested investors recently in more than twenty hotels coming up with an inventory of more than thousand rooms out of which ‘LSR’ has two properties with accumulating 76 rooms.
The outer bay has an extensive coral reef which is one of the best-known reef systems in the Indian Ocean. For the tourists those who are keen on diving in the sea, then there are some excellent diving spots, including the wreck of the HMS Hermes, a WW2 British naval ship. From the land, tourists are able to enjoy exploring the Maduru Oya National Park where you have a good chance of seeing elephants as well as the ancient medieval capital of Polonnaruwa.
‘Marina Beach Passikudah’ Sri Lanka is set next to the beach at Passikudah Bay which is an ideal place for swimming and water sports as they have their own water sport centre to deliver one of the best water sports experiences in the South East Asia.
