Pasikuda beach, recognized as one of safest beaches in Sri Lanka is very famous among the travellers who travel around the Sri Lanka. White sand, shallow waters, coral reefs and palm trees make beaches idyllic places to spend the day on the seaside.
One of the most iconic locations on Sri Lanka’s east coast, Pasikuda has diving suitable for both beginners right up to technical divers. Most of the dive sites are relatively shallow and suitable for new divers with average depths between 10-15m. The main features of diving in Pasikuda are the healthy coral gardens teeming with colorful fish such as butter fly fish and angelfish. For those looking for some adventure, there are deeper rocky reefs and wrecks that are more suitable for advanced divers. Typical fish life includes schools of yellow striped goatfish, blue lined snappers and big eye snappers, clownfish, coral cods, sweet lips, trivially, napoleon wrasses and stingrays.
Pasikuda is also an excellent base for wreck diving with several shallow wrecks and the WWII tanker British Sergeant sunk during a Japanese air raid in 1942. Further away are the aircraft carrier HMS Hermes and other WWII wrecks available as special expeditions from Pasikuda.
