Around thirty-five kilometers northwest of Batticaloa town on the east coast of Sri Lanka lies Pasikuda, a coastal town with a spectacular, blue bay and soft, sandy beaches. Pasikuda is renowned because of its extended shallow coastline, making it a great spot for sunbathing and shallow swimming. The mesmerizing, azure waters are hard to resist and, along with the pristine, white-golden sand of the beach, create an incredible sight. Much of the town was destroyed during the 2004 Asian tsunami, but since then, tourism has gradually picked up. Today, Pasikuda offers the guests breathtaking views and a tranquil atmosphere with many stylish and luxurious resorts and boutique hotels.
