Centara Passikudah Resort & Spa Sri Lanka sits on the pristine crescent Passikudah Bay, Sri Lanka’s north-eastern coast, bordered by shallow waters that are ideal water sport lovers. The resort lies 35 kilometres north of Batticaloa. Passikudah Bay is also home to a shallow fringing coral reef where schooling fish and diverse coral life are abundant; farther off the coast is the Mushroom Reef, famous for its healthy coral life and picture-perfect kaleidoscope of colours. The expanse of golden sand before the bay makes for a great to place from which to enjoy marvellous sunrises.

Maduru Oya National Park

Established in 1983, Maduru Oya National Park is both a nature sanctuary and a catchment area for five large reservoirs. A community of Vedda people, the indigenous ethnic group of Sri Lanka, live within the park boundary at Henanigala. Many ancient sites and earthworks are located within the park, and ruins of Buddhist shrines, temples, dagobas, statues and hermitages are to be found at several sites. The landscape is distinctive because of its highly weathered rock outcrops and ridges, and there are a long range of rocky mountains in the southwest of the park, which is 288 kilometres northeast of Colombo.

Madu River Safaris

The Madu Ganga is a river that flows through an enormous area of wetlands before entering the Indian Ocean. Dotted with islands where fishermen work in traditional ways and villagers engage in cottage industries such as producing peeled cinnamon and cinnamon oil. This is also an area for studying nature and ecosystems, and for boating, camping and fishing. Taking an organised safari is the ideal way to explore this fascinating region, with overnight stays in a tent on an uninhabited island being perfect for experiencing the Madu Ganga.


Dambulla cave temple is a World Heritage Site. The rock towers 160 metres over the surrounding plains, and there are more than 80 documented caves in the surrounding area. Major attractions are spread over five caves, which contain statues and murals relating to the Lord Buddha and his life. The temple complex dates back to the 1st century BC, and in 1938 the setting was embellished with arched colonnades and gabled entrances. Prehistoric people lived in these caves before the Buddha era, and there are burial sites with human skeletons around 2700 years old.
