Beach Activities to be Done Surrounding Kalutara – Fun Times at the Shore

The sunny coastal town of Kalutara in Sri Lanka offers plenty of fun which can be enjoyed at the beach. Here are some of the best activities to be experienced in and around this charming town.



The beach in Kalutara, bathed in sunshine and home to golden sands, is the ideal place for a picnic. Be it under the shade of palm trees or close enough to the waves to feel the fine spray against your face, a beach picnic is a wonderful way in which to just chill out with friends and family. Easy to plan if staying at hotels in Kalutara by the beach, a picnic can be as simple or as grand as you want and the picture postcard coastal setting will provide the ideal backdrop for you.



The beach is the perfect place to just unwind and find that inner Zen feeling you crave. One of the best ways to experience this is through some yoga. While Kalutara hotels by the shore like Mermaid Hotel & Club offer yoga, look to practise it on the beach itself either when the sun is greeting the day or when it makes its fiery descent below the horizon in the evening. While yoga classes can be found, if you already know your yoga poses, there is nothing like finding that quiet spot on the beach where you can just lose yourself in the beauty of nature.



Taking to the waters and swimming some laps or just lazing in the pool is kind of mandatory for any holiday. But what really makes for a memorable memory is getting a chance to swim in the ocean. While at the beach in Kalutara or other areas along the south coast, look to go for a refreshing swim in the sea. Do remember that depending on the season the sea can be rough and have strong currents so do not venture too far out. Make sure you don't go alone and there are people with you or who can keep an eye on you.



Some sports which are traditionally played indoors or on a ground can even be enjoyed on the beach here. Of course when in Sri Lanka you should see if you can get in a game of cricket, which is one of the most loved sports in the island. It is common for kids and adults to be playing a game of cricket on the shore and you can observe them or if feeling brave enough, ask to join a bit! The beach here is also well suited for a game of touch rugby, as well as beach volleyball and spontaneous games of beach football (soccer).


Sand Castle Building

This is one of the most fun beach activities one can try. Of course, it's more satisfying when you are doing it with siblings, the family or friends. The sand here is ideal for constructing these houses, castles, mansions or caves of sand; though don't get too close to the water and those pesky waves!
