Discover an unexplored region teeming with adventure.
Far from the urban bustle of city but comfortingly close to the best of our natural wonders, Kottukal Beach House by Jetwing is one of Sri Lanka’s best spots to embark on your island adventure.
The neighboring Arugam Bay has long attracted surfers from around the world for its reputed waves and breaks, and continues to thrive with the hip hotspots of Pottuvil Point, Whiskey Point, Sangamankanda Point, Peanut Farm, Crocodile Rock, and more. In addition, the adrenalin-filled eastern coastline also serves as a habitat for exotic island wildlife. At Kottukal Beach House by Jetwing, our gardens are not only home to several species of birds including the majestic Brahminy Kite, but also a family of mongoose and flocks of butterflies, with the occasional visit from an elephant or two! Wildlife is abounding in Pottuvil, where several other island fauna including monkeys, reptiles, and other mammals can be spotted at the national parks of Kumana and Lahugala in close proximity.
For a more cultural experience, opt for a religious excursion to the Muhudu or Magul Maha Viharayas, or the Kudumbigala Monastery. And if immersion in Sri Lankan hospitality is something you yearn for, fishing with the local fishermen, and cooking classes at the nearby Urani Village can also be arranged for a day of absolute island authenticity.
