DESCRIPTION The eco friendly resort Amaya Beach is located on the east side of the island about 35km Northwest of Batticaloa. The coastal community of Passikudah is known to have one of the longest stretches of shallow coastline in the world. With its white sandy beach, sand so soft it almost disappears in your hands, lush tropical gardens and dotted palmyrah trees, Amaya Beach truly is a sun drenched haven. Passikudah Bay is protected by a reef that runs across making it one of the safest and calmest stretches of coastline in the east. It is also home to reef fish and lovely coral formations. The sustainable resort is the ideal hide-away for those seeking tranquility.
