A very neat and clean beach with big waves, Just sit and relax watching this beautiful scenery. A walk by the beach soothes your soul.

One of the best and least used beaches I have ever seen. Miles of endless and very clean sand. Beware of the powerful waves,.

Get a tuk tuk to it , but bring water most of the cafes are part of hotels and it's difficult to get a drink

The beach could be cleaner but the locals are very friendly and the views are still breath taking. Lots to see and do here, tons of gem shops, clothes shops and a good choice of restaurants to eat in reasonably priced.

Unfortunately, the beach is not nice and, above all, it is dirty. There are very few really beautiful beaches in Sri Lanka. So there is nothing to expect too much.
