The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary is a beautiful, mellow spot with just you and a boatman punting a boat around the lagoon.
The trip is best taken just after dawn but for those resistant to early rising it is also satisfying to take the trip in late afternoon.
This bird sanctuary is home to many species of resident as well as migratory shorebirds. From kingfishers to flamingoes inhabit this extensive wetland area of mangrove swamps and lagoons.
Kalametiya is one of Sri Lanka's oldest and main bird sanctuaries, first declared a wildlife sanctuary in 1938. It is found about half-an-hour south east of Tangalle. There are over 150 species of birds, including 54 migrants.
The best time to visit is from November to April.
