Wadduwa is in the Western Province of Sri Lanka.


Stay in Wadduwa and soak up the culture. You’ll find a diverse mix of shops, many selling traditional Sri Lankan handicrafts such as masks and colourful wood carvings.

The surrounding seas of Wadduwa are suited for water sports such as windsurfing, and on land, people play games like beach volleyball. And as Wadduwa is still a working fishing village, you can stroll down to the boats as the fishermen bring in the day’s catches. If you want a spell away from the sand, you’ll find enough distractions to keep you occupied here. The train from Wadduwa takes you right along the coastline and has plenty of impressive Kodak moments along the way.
