Being an island, we have the opportunity to witness a large number of beautiful landscape features on a small plot. Kalpitiya has a number of features in one place. In the past, during the Portuguese and Dutch rulings, the Kalpitiya peninsula was a very safe favorite area. But after the colonial rule, Kalpitiya remained alone as a dwelling place for the fishing community.
After a long time, it has developed into a tourism area. A tourist from Colombo would go to Kalpitiya through Negombo-Chilaw-Puttalam road. In the meantime, we have to go from Puttalam to Peliyawala Station and use another transport route there which is about 170km away. As the 16 islands, the lagoon and two landing areas of Kalpitiya Peninsula are away from the main land Kalpitiya looks like as if a separate country.
Battalangunduwa Island is one of the most popular places to visit in Kalpitiya. You can reach the Battalanagunduwa Island at a fair price for a boat ride. Today, many of the islanders have created many tourist attractions on the island. In Kalpitiya, the Old Dutch Fort, the Dutch Church are still remarkably beautiful as the historic places of the city.
The Alankuda beach has become one of the fastest growing tourist destinations in the world. If you want to see dolphins and whales, you will have the opportunity to go for a boat trip from Kalpitiya to the sea. This is because the Kalpitiya Sea is a region where whales and dolphins are a common sight.
There is much more to watch in Kalpitiya, including the recently built Norochcholai thermal power plant. Remember that the magnificent beauty that comes with clean and beautiful coastline in Kalpitiya is the most valuable thing that you can get free.
