PASSEKUDAH Bay

Way back in the 1970s and early 1980s, they twin beaches of Passekudah and Kalkudah were the east coast’s most developed tourist destinations, home to modest cluster of resort hotels and drawing a steady string of European tourists to this far-flung corner of the island. All that ended following the outbreak of war. The hotels were first abandoned, and subsequently destroyed; their ghostly skeletons remained, until quite recently, standing sentry over the deserted beaches.

Now the area is on the cusp of a second, and even more dramatic coming, earmarked as a special tourist development zone and already in the throes of enormous development. The formerly deserted arc of Passekudah Bay is now ringed with some hotels and resorts of qualities and services.

The eastern part of the country with Passekudah and Tricomalee beaches, enjoys good weather between April and the end of September, however the southwest of the island has better weather the rest of the year.
