We spent 5 nights here during our 2 weeks trip to SL. Love it! Beach is beautiful and clean. We were in shoulder season and the bay was wavy (still swimmable) but apparently in summer the bay is like a swimming pool; mist be amazing.

After visiting too many beaches polluted with unbelievable washed up plastics of all descriptions as well as rotting nylon fishing nets, Pasikudah beach comes as a golden tropical delight. Twice I walked the entire length of the beach ( a good hour and a half each way) and in the entire walk saw only TWO small pieces of plastic: a tiny bag and a child's small doll. AMAZING.
Even where the fishing village fronts the beach, it is CLEAN. No garbage, no plastic, no rotting nets and absolutely no household trash dumped on the sands; just pristinely clean white coral sands.
Here's why; the first resort owners to build there, the beach bungalow style Maalu Maalu invested largely on contemporary education for the local fishing village. Maalu Maalu also purchases the catch. The got together with them and relocated the entire village to the north of the beach, built two school rooms for the kids and pay the teaching fees for both the computer centre and language centre.
They taught the fishermen to STOP fishing with dynamite (yes, dynamite) and also that it's imperative to create a pristine beach for their income and for future work for the kids; its all working. It's a paradise.
On the beach, LSR , Lanka Sportsreizen provide water skiing, jet skiing, snorkel etc at very competitive price . Fun in the sun :)
It was such a pleasure staying at Maalu Maalu Resort: excellent catch of the day seafood bar etc and easy beach access to the neighbouring resorts if you like to explore various menus. Having a fabulously CLEAN beach to enjoy and for endless strolls and bathing, sun, fun, white sands and turquoise tropical water.
100% Bliss
NB. In 6 weeks we were driven over 4,000 KLM's to many luxurious destinations: Pasikudah Beach was the only pristine tropical beach we landed on, and for small, quiet unobtrusive accommodation, Maalu Maalu is tops.

If you like to be on your own no problem, stay by the hotel ,if you like to chat with the locals then go to that section. All are safe and with plenty of soft sand

This is a lovely looking beach although no real character - just big resort hotels. The sea is painful to walk into as there are huge quantities of sharp coral which you can't avoid. I spoke to local business owners whilst there and discovered that in 2009, the big hotels got together and destroyed the coral reefs in order to get rid of the waves created. The local businesses fought against this but there was nothing they could do. If you walk along the beach you will see piles and piles of dead coral - quite distressing. There is a Swiss NGO working to replant the coral and if you want to learn more, go chat to the manager Siva of Hotel Vasuki - a lovely man who is trying to improve the area and incidentally serves up an absolutely amazing curry and rice.

Passikudah beach is just off a picture postcard. White powdery sandy beaches with ocean blue water…… and the reef allows you to walk into the sea and enjoy its beauty. From the hotel stretch, it’s only Uga Bay and Malu Malu that has a great beach front. Others either have a very narrow beach front or the beach has a lot of coral debris, making it difficult to walk about.

Greater place for morning and evening bath and swim. Super up waves, hotels near by, small shops. If you travel on week days, none other than Sri Lankan holidays then you can enjoy the beauty with lesser crowd. Otherwise, you will have to manage the domestic tourists as well. Since the civil war ended up recently, there are so many Sri Lankans visit here. Although, you may experienced with garbage dumped here and there on your way, the beach is beautiful.

Pasikuda beach is very beautiful and provides a superb location to see the sunrise. You need to be at the beach by 6am to see it.

The ocean is not deep for few meters and is safe for an enjoyable family trip. The waves are not rough letting you relax and enjoy your time.
