Rekawa

Nature & Parks · Kayaking & Canoeing
A small town with a laidback vibe squeezed between the ocean and the shores of a rich lagoon surrounded by mangroves, Rekawa draws visitors throughout the year with a pioneering turtle conservation project, the most notable tourist attraction in Rekawa. Five species of marine turtles--including the giant leatherback and the endangered hawksbill--come to this important nesting site on the south shore of Sri Lanka to lay their eggs in the sand of Rekawa beach. Even though most Rekawa holidays revolve around turtle watching, there are other ways to spend time there--including swimming, snorkeling, bird-watching at the nearby bird sanctuary, and indulging in the local cuisine. Plan how to spend your time in Rekawa and other destinations in Sri Lanka using our Sri Lanka online tour itinerary planner.
