Kallady Beach (Batticaloa)

Navalady Road, Batticaloa

  • Open 24 hours, but daytime is best.


A small road takes you to the beautiful beach at Kallady, which carries sombre reminders of the tragedy that struck Sri Lanka in 2004. Debris that the Boxing Day Tsunami left behind are now cordoned off by short picket fences with signs warning visitors to conduct themselves respectfully on the beach.



Near the bridge, a small road takes you to the beautiful beach at Kallady, which carries sombre reminders of the tragedy that struck Sri Lanka in 2004. Debris that the Boxing Day Tsunami left behind are now cordoned off by short picket fences with signs warning visitors to conduct themselves respectfully on the beach.

On the same road to the Kallady beach, another curious remnant of the tsunami worth visiting is the Thiruchendur Murugan Temple, which was split in half by the sheer force of the waves and whose rear portion containing the sanctum remains buried at an angle in the ground.
