Our ultimate choice of the best beaches in North Sri Lanka!
Here is a selection of the best beaches on the north coast of the island.
The Casurina Beach is a local hit. Situated about 20 km from Jaffna town, you can reach it by road by taking the Ponnalai causway. The sea here is shallow and not rough, the reason why locals consider it as a salt-water pool. The beach gets its name from the lovely casurina trees that provide this area with a beautiful contrast between the clear waters and the white sands.
All around Mannar island, the sea is warm and the beaches, sandy. The shallow waters that allow bathers to wade in the water quite far from the shore can be quite an experience.
