Passikudah and Kalkudah Beaches

The beaches of Passikudah and Kalkudah are considered to be some of the finest in the country, due to its soft golden sands, and calm azure waters that are perfect for water sports activity. Passikudah beach is the bigger of the two beaches and is also the more popular, thus the reason as to why the government has designated the area a special economic zone for tourism activity. Presently, the Passikudah Beach thrives with a variety of activity, from just relaxing on the sun beds to the adrenaline filled water sports, there is a lot to see and do when you choose to stay in the many resorts at the beach.

On the other hand, the Kalkudah Beach is smaller and may not possess the same grandeur as its Passikudah counterpart.
