This section is dedicated to take away all your "I wish someone had told me that before I went!" experiences.

We share our insider knowledge of tips, tricks and important things to look out for in Kalpitiya.

Kalpitiya is a coastal town in Sri Lanka that is renowned for its surf and the dolphins. Located on a peninsula away from the mainland, it is one of the most visited places in the country by tourists and locals alike. It was not until recently that the city and the surrounding sea was opened up for the public. It is located near the expansive Wilpattu National Park and the city of Puttalam. Hostels are abundant here and in neighboring cities. The prices of hostels are lower than in southern cities like Galle.

The ocean is where the action is at in the town. Getting a hostel near the sea is a good idea so you will not have to take a taxi to the beach every time you want to go. Being on the western coast of the country, the beaches of Kalpitiya are ideal for watching the sunsets that Sri Lanka is known for. There are tons of other activities to do here, though, one of which is scuba diving.

There are extensive reefs in the region that are perfect for exploring. Marine life includes the hundreds of dolphins along with stingrays, tropical fish, and more. The dolphins are one of the main attractions of the city of Kalpitiya. Pack a lunch at your hostel and take a trip on the sea to watch the dolphins as they migrate and play. Alternatively, you can kitesurf across the ocean, keeping speed with these mammals.

Less oceanic activities in Kalpitiya include a visit to the nearby Wilpattu National Park, which is the biggest national park in the country. Take a safari here to see the many elephants, along with other tropical and exotic plants and animals, some of which are endangered species. The park is a great way to get in touch with nature. If someone in the town offers to be your tour guide, though, be very careful. There are many who simply are in it for the cash.
