A popular beachside getaway just an hour south of Colombo, Kalutara is as recognizable for its enormous white Buddhist stupa as for its inviting white-sand beaches.
Sri Sankapala Raja Maha Viharaya and Kajugaswatta Temple will appeal to history buffs. Get in touch with nature at Kalutara Beach and Wadduwa Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Kalutara side-trips: Kaduwela Mahamevnawa Buddhist Monastery (in Kaduwela), Holy Mother of Expectation Church Eldeniya Kadawatha (in Kadawata) and Panadura Beach (in Panadura). Next up on the itinerary: see majestic marine mammals with a dolphin and whale watching tour, stop by Palace Seaside, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Asokaramaya Buddhist Temple, and explore the world behind art at Ranjiths Carving and Batik Museum.

To see other places to visit, photos, reviews, and tourist information, you can read our Kalutara vacation planner.

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airports are Bandaranaike International Colombo Airport and Mattala Rajapaksa International Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Kalutara can reach 36°C, while at night they dip to 30°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
