Geographically, the Kalpitiya coastal area is peninsula and it separates the Puttalam lagoon from the Indian Ocean. Getting on a boat from the Noraiadi jetty, I was privileged to go on a boat ride and visit several islands with breathtaking beaches filled with sift white sand.
The boat ride is quite fun as the dancing waves and the drizzle of sea spray makes the boat ride vibrant and colorful.
We visited the Ippantivu Island which had a diverse eco system consisting of varieties of mangroves.
