North West

When heading north of Colombo, you will enter a region that consists of coconut plantations, vast sand dune beaches and pristine lagoons, sparkling in the sun. The remote coastal towns, Kalpitiya and Mannar, remain untouched by mass tourism, are a perfect destination for anyone who wants to enjoy peaceful sceneries and colourful local life, and discover the wonders of nature.

The North West coast, rich with cinnamon and spices, have attracted Arab, Chinese and Roman traders since the 5th century. With the colonisation, the coastal towns of Negombo, Chilaw and Kalpitiya saw the construction of forts and churches established by both the Portuguese and the Dutch. As a result, the population of the region is diverse with the majority being Catholics.

The seas off the coast of Kalpitiya are home to dolphins, whales, stingrays and several species of Marine turtles. Watersports are also available here. The lagoons and waterways in Mannar are a haven for flamingos and other migrant birds from October to March, while Wilpattu National Park has the most scenic landscapes with numerous lakes, diverse wildlife and fairy tale forests.
