Visitors can enjoy a boat ride through the mangroves and canals of the lagoon in Kalpitiya. During the ride, you can view salt pans, sand dunes, and fishing villages. You can get a real insight into the close-knit fishing community and their living lifestyle and daily routines during the lagoon tour. The shrimp farms too can be sighted from a distance. It is also a tremendous opportunity for bird watching and witnessing the aquatic life in the lagoon.



The Anawilundawa bird sanctuary situated between Chilaw and Puttalam is home to a variety of resident and migratory bird species. The sanctuary is also a nesting site for many exotic bird species. An array of mammals and many species of butterflies too can be spotted here. It is a great favorite amongst bird watchers and nature lovers, who come to spot rare birds, watch their behavior in their natural environment and indulge in some great photography.
