Batticaloa Lagoon

This is the closest lagoon in Pasikuda, which is just 32 kilometres from Pasikuda. Several islands named Puliyantheevu, Buffalo Islands and Bone are connected to the Batticaloa lagoon by bridges that you can visit. The Kallady lagoon has one of the longest bridges in the country, which leads to breathtaking coastline views!


Batticaloa Dutch Fort

The fort was founded by the Portuguese back in 1628 and captured by the Dutch around a decade later, who gave its official name. The fort is located in the heart of Batticaloa's city. The Puliyantheevu Island, meanwhile, is surrounded on all sides by this lagoon and has a box-like appearance. The aim is to convert this ancient fort into a historical museum and convention centre in the long term.


Archaeological excursions in Polonnaruwa

Enjoy a one-hour drive from Pasikuda to a heritage town called Polonnaruwa. In this ancient city, visitors can see the remains and ruins of royal palaces, statues, parks, mosques, and other religious sites. The scenic beauty of Polonnaruwa was also portrayed in a music video back in 1982.
