We thoroughly enjoyed our bird watching tour. We saw over 40 species of birds, monkeys, water buffalos and iguanas. The sunrise tour was relaxing and informative. Our guide was excellent with great knowledge of all the species. We’ve been treated some complimentary water and some biscuits too.

Beautiful Kalametiya lagoon and beach. Tranquil and scenic. Wonderful boat trip onto the lagoon to see the birds catch their breakfast. Long warm swim at the harbour end of the beach. So peaceful. Found a green turtle shell and lots of sea glass for craftwork.
