    The food at the Blue Water is fantastic,every night was a different theme,from chinese to mexican.There was a seafood camp fire by the beach and a bar-be-que on the lawn, and the desserts were to die for.They even made us a beautiful cake for our 20th wedding anniversay.

    Our anniversary cake.

Wadduwa Transportation

  • CATCH A TRAIN.

    There is a train station in Wadduwa,it takes you all along the south coast,fantastic for sight seeing.But beware they do get packed certain times of the day just like are rush hours here,you can see them hanging on the sides and even on the roofs as well.Train prices are really cheap.

Wadduwa Local Customs

  • GREAT FOR AN UPSET STOMACH.

    Don't leave Sri Lanka without trying a King coconut,its a lovely drink and is great for an upset stomach and is even better cure for a hangover.Sri Lankan's use every part of coconuts nothing goes to waste,also its where the local drink arrack comes from.

Wadduwa Warnings and Dangers

  • WATCH THE CURRENT.

    If you are going out of season be very careful in the sea.The under current is very strong,a man staying at our Hotel broke his hand in the sea,he didn't realize how bad it was.There are no life saving facillities on most beaches.

  • MIND YOUR HEAD!!!

    Be careful with all the palm trees,as there are hundreds and hundreds of them the branches fall off. They are quite big and could do you an injury.In my picture if you click on it you can see the man that went around each day pulling the loose branches off.He used to climb right to the top and he wasn't a young man either.

    Miscellaneous: Pack light for beach stays as it is so hot in Sri Lanka and the humidity is so high,you will only need your swim wear,shorts t.shirts etc and something smart for the evenings.take a high sun factor and a mozzie spray we got bit quite a few times.
