Ich war dort tauchen, mit Ypsylon Diving.Das war super.. wir hatten im September Quallen..aber nur die ersten 2 Meter,dann beim ersten Tauchgang tolle Sicht... Beim Schnorcheln Haie gesehen... Leider ... more »I was diving there, with Ypsylon Diving.That was great.. we had jellyfish in September. but only the first 2 meters,then at the first dive great view... Shark snorkeling... Unfortunately, some corals are dead. That's a real pity, because a lot of people trample on it...
A great place for snorkelling. Can see many kinds of pretty fish, some reef sharks and corals. Do take care to wear sandals around here, the sand is filled with corals.
This is a national park maintain by srilankan government. Very near to nilavali beach. Need to have 10min boat ride to reach the island. Beautiful and natural island and beach. You can see colourful fish near by the beach.
