Water Sports in Sri Lanka

The expansive stretch of beach and warm blue waters of Pasikuda present hundreds of metres of calm shallows that are perfect for water sports in Sri Lanka. Glide across the water kayaking or try out windsurfing (outsourced). The vibrant coral reef in this area make it the perfect spot for some snorkelling while the deeper waters are filled with mysterious underwater treasures to explore, including shipwrecks.

Uga Bay can organise an unforgettable exploratory expedition to the nearby World War II shipwreck of the HMS Hermes. It presents one of the most exciting scuba diving locations in the region. The Hermes was the very first purpose-built aircraft carrier in the world and was sunk by Japanese aircraft just off the coast of Batticaloa. This dive however, is reserved for experienced divers, as the vessel lies at a depth of 44 m (145 ft).
