I think this is the only one beach in Jaffna. But unfortunately, it is a very dirty place. And also there is no any place to get good foods.

We went to this beach on a recommendation. When we arrived the beach was crowded but bearable. The beach was filthy with litter and bottles everywhere. The water was equally add polluted. Shop this beach and go to the other less tourist places for a...More

This is the beach at the top of Sri Lanka, about twenty miles from India. There are facilities to change and shower (they cost a small amount). The beach was filled with a large crowd, but the water is shallow enough that you can be...More
