Passikudah, on the east coast, forms a breathtaking arc of pristine golden sand and warm, turquoise water. It’s a half day’s drive from Colombo airport, but the transfer is well worth the effort – especially if you’re travelling with children as, unlike the south and west coast beaches, the bay is shallow and gently shelving (so perfect for little ones). The choice of hotels nestled in the palm groves behind is extensive (the properties are all brand new) and you can escape the holiday scene altogether at neighbouring Kalkudah, a short stroll around the headland. The local reefs are great for snorkelling and there are quality kayaks and sailboards for hire. Sunset cruises by catamaran are an added attraction.
