You will never be at a loss of things to do in Batticaloa, especially given the lovely beaches, being some of the best in the island. Going for a walk early morning at sunrise, along the Batticaloa beach, is a glorious experience. You can even join one of the fishermen on his catamaran and head towards the untouched waters of Passekudah bay. A snorkeling visit to the coral island nearby, infested with exotic corals and reef fish, is a must do.
The Batticaloa beach is also a hub of activity and you can always join in on a game of volley ball or badminton. If you enjoy water sports, you can be a little adventurous and go wind-surfing or kayaking.
Dining at some of the village restaurants has to be on your list of things to do in Batticaloa. Some of the best around the area include Aadavan Suvaiuzthu which is a bright and colourful snack bar and Lakshmi Diner, a local restaurant serving tasty vegetarian dishes. Though it does not by any means offer the most luxurious atmosphere, it is definitely an experience in itself.Submit Inquiry
