combination of luxury, rustic style, and seclusion

Cycling in Kalpitiya

A fascinating opportunity to gently discover more about Sri Lankan daily life, take your time as you cycle at your own pace through the nearby lanes and fishing villages of the Kalpitiya peninsula.

Join in with a game of cricket, see the rows of fish drying in the midday sun, marvel at the expansive salterns, and stop at the shoreline to watch, or maybe help, as the catch of the day is brought ashore. In such a small area the mix of cultures and religions is evident as you ride past mosques, temples, churches and Hindu kovils.

We can prepare a packed lunch with water and snacks, but also take the opportunity to stop for a refreshing King Coconut at a local roadside stall, or to sit with some locals in the neighbourhoods kade for a hot cup of Sri Lankan tea.
