Kalpitiya luxury Beach Camp Sri Lanka

Overview of Kalpitiya luxury Beach Camp

Kalpitiya-Despite its natural beauty, the western peninsular area of Kalpitiya in the Puttalam district of Sri Lanka is remarkably untouched by tourism.  But for those lucky enough to visit, there is a multitude of things to see and do!  With the small close-knit fishing community dominating the lives of the local people, visitors can get a real insight into the working life away from the city.  After watching the night fishing boats return in the morning, a visit to one of the fish markets offers the opportunity to choose the evening meal direct from the fresh catch!  The Dutch Fort and St Peter’s Kerk church in the town itself are interesting examples of Sri Lanka’s rich history and colonial past.  Leisurely boat rides up the lagoon and canoe trips down the river are a pleasant way of exploring the coastline, whilst 4WD jeep rides along the deserted sand dunes between the ocean and the lagoon offer a unique way of watching the colourful evening sunsets. For keen scuba divers and snorkellers, the largest coral reef in Sri Lanka (‘Bar reef’) is only an hour’s boat trip from Kalpitiya.  This beautiful reef is home to an incredible variety of tropical fish as well as offering sightings of manta rays, reef sharks and the occasional turtle!

Turtle Point Lodge and Diving Camp is situated near the small fishing village of Kandakuliya on the west coast of the Puttalam district of Sri Lanka, approximately 6 km from Kalpitiya itself.  The lodge is a true escape from modern-day civilisation as guests can enjoy the romanticism of using oil lamps instead of electricity. 

Flaming torches light up the outside area from which guests can relax and marvel at the beautiful open starry skies whilst enjoying a hearty barbecue dinner of locally caught fresh fish or having a go at making the traditional Sri Lankan ‘kotthu roti'!  A night at the lodge wouldn't be complete without a walk along the deserted beach to look for the sea turtles that come ashore to lay eggs – an unforgettable experience that is not to be missed!
