is the nearest land to Baththalangunduwa Island at the top of the Kalpitiya Peninsula which looks like a hand on the map of Ceylon.

Baththalangunduwa Island is a great place to spend a night in a tent or fishing spot if you want to get there in a day. Its journey was a strange experience.
This archipelago, which can be described as a marvel of nature, is also a significant factor in the proposed tourism project in Kalpitiya. Fishing is the main livelihood on Baththalangunduwa Island. Innocent islanders who live by fishing live a different life on this island.
The island does not even have a bicycle for transportation. There is only a handcart to carry fishing gear.
This island is a fishing island. A large number of fishing families live there. That's it. This is a nice trip for us but the people who live here are very tired.
The island also has a Catholic church and a temple. There are many religious rites associated with it.
Important things :
Take everything you need with you on the way. If you forget, you can't go back. Because there are no five-star hotels or shops here. Poor innocent fishing village. So don't forget to be a support to those people who are going to enjoy life. Come and spend a day in life to spend the night inside a tent. We kindly request you to protect these places as always and make sure not to cause any harm. Travel the country with love as a true Sri Lankan.
