Passikudah is a small coastal village situated in the east of Sri Lanka about 35 kilometres from Batticaloa.

It is famous for its golden bay and clear, shallow waters in which you can wade 50 metres out to sea. The bay of Passikudah is truly scenic and is protected by a reef that runs across the bay making it one of the safest and calmest stretches of coastline in the east. The reef is home to some lovely coral formations and schools of reef fish can be seen while snorkelling.
