Kalutara beach is not a particular clean beach. The surf can be quite strong, making swimming a challenge. Sadly, due to the proximity to the city, there is quite a bit of floating debris present.

We went in late October, the waves were rough and red flags everywhere as it was not safe to go in the water. We were told best time to go is between December and March.

We went to Coco Royal Beach end of September, beginning of October this year. The Beach was really rough! Red flags out every day and wasn't really wise to get in. Also we found the Beach was full of rubbish which was disappointing, big piles...More

While in Sri Lanka a visit to beach is unavoidable. This could be one favorite spot. The clean air is distinctly felt.

Indian ocean is rough in October so swimming is not advisable. The beach itself is very nice however due to rough ocean there were lot of tree trunks and also few bottles on the beach from the nearby Black River. I can imagine if cleaned,...More

Stayed for two weeks at the Avani hotel kalutara. If you are wanting to swim, this was only possible earlier morning as the current was simply too strong at day time. The sunsets are amazing.

As may be expected a town built along the Indian Ocean would have a lot of access to the beach. My experience of it was from Avani Resort which has full access to the beach on one side.    Unlike the Mediterranean and the Carribean seas the Indian Ocean is active and pretty rough, and to be exposed to its raw power and majesty is an awe-inspiring experience!

Of course. But it will be more expensive as, like all hotels in the world, they will take their commission. For example, transfer Colombo-Kalutara with any of the airport companies is Rp 7000.- the return booked with the... More
