Up in Sri Lanka’s east coast, you will find the coastal stretch of Passikudah which offers some truly action-packed water sports that can be enjoyed by young and old alike.
Passikudah is home to a number of coral reefs for exploring; the relatively calm waters make for a safe dive while the warm Indian Ocean abounds in marine life. Watch out for not just colourful outcrops of coral but tiny tropical fish living amongst these organisms as well as marine life that will glide past gracefully.
Due to its protected bay, Passikudah offers relatively shallow waters perfect for swimming. Enjoy the waters of the Indian Ocean as you laze in the water or swim out to sea.
Whizz across the sea straddled aboard a powerful jet ski and let yourself go. Travellers can enjoy the joys of this sport while staying in a hotel in Passikudah such as the well placed Anantaya Resort & Spa Passikudah.
Windsurfing is one of the most favoured water sports activities in Sri Lanka. The strong winds rolling off the bay are highly conducive for skimming across the ocean.
