Peace in a piece of nature
Feb 2020 • Family
If you want to slow and be aware of nature, this is the right place. The best time is 1 hour before sunset. Clouds of birds, the frogs evening song. Everything helps you to stay in astonishment. You don't need to pay for a floater at the hotel. You can use a floater near the bank by yourself.

Excellent trip! Really beautiful scenery and saw lots of wildlife. Staff were very helpful and friendly too. Definitely recommend this. Go early in the morning or in the late afternoon as you are out in the sun.

Paddle on the River
Apr 2019 • Solo
A paddle on this lagoon is a very interesting and relaxing way to spend an afternoon. Some Hotels will hire our canoes and kayaks. Tranquil waters and not so deep.

Great relaxing time
Dec 2018 • Solo
Perfect way to relax and get away from the busy beachside's in Tangalle, especially in the morning time it's great... I went out at 6.30 (6 should be even better I think) and saw lot's of birds and a lot of water monitor lizards (some big ones) and to top it all off I saw an eagle (Brahminy Kite actually) swooping down and catch a fish couple of meters in front of me on my last 5 minutes... I was completely alone the whole time, very relaxing...When I was done at 9.45 I just saw two other kayaks entering the water.
I enjoyed it so much I returned at 4pm to have another go at it... Lot's of birds returning, saw some monkeys in the trees (grey langurs) jumping over my head from tree to tree, and when it became more dark I also saw some bats... Downside at this time, bit more people out. Not that many though, saw like 9 others kayaks...

If you decide to do this, make sure to inform at Mallika Guesthouse... Very friendly people and they only ask 750 lkr and tell you to take your time and enjoy, most others charge 1000 to 1500 lkr and some even say you have to pay extra if you exceed a 2 hour time limit (which I did with a big margin both times).

Enjoy!

Beautiful setting for a quiet paddle
Apr 2018 • Friends
Lovely lagoon with amazing mangroves and lots of bird life. We also saw a large monitor lizard and some monkeys.

The noise from the nearby road was a little distracting but didn’t seem to bother the birds.

Kayaks are well maintained and a map is provided so you can paddle around at your leisure.

Lovely way to pass an hour in the late afternoon. Early morning is also supposed to be a good time to see more bird life.
