Pasikudah Beach is just next to Kalkudah Beach. They are amazing paradise beaches with silky white sand and transparent water that are unspoiled and uncrowded. The ocean is warm and the water clarity is excellent between May and September, making it perfect for snorkeling, diving, sailing, and a variety of other water activities. Swimming may be done at any time of year.

The shallow fringing coral reef in Pasikudah bay, towards the outer bay, is ideal for snorkeling.
