Coastal Belt from Chilaw to Kalpitiya
The stretch of coastline North of Colombo up to Chilaw has been quite popular for tourism and leisure activities for a long time.
After the situation of the country turns better the tourism industry seem to be thriving in this region and beyond. Recently the region North of Chilaw up to Kalpitiya is also attracted by many large scale hotel companies both local and foreign.
The coastal belt between Chilaw and Kalpitiya up to now remains as a quite remote area explored by a few tourists and locals only. This region is rich with unique natural eco-system that is not found in other parts of the country. One such place is Anawilundawa area, which I mentioned sometime back. In addition the Mundal Lagoon area, the coastal belt up to Kalpitiya and the most of the main land coastline up to Wilpattu National Park and beyond, still remain as unspoiled area.
The above picture was taken at the beach front east of Anawilundawa close to a small fishing village called, Udappuwa.
