The historic city of Batticaloa offers plenty to see and do and provides a one of a kind perspective into the area’s cultural heritage. The city is also famous for a unique attraction that has fascinated visitors from the world over; singing fish! Found in the Batticaloa lagoon and close to the Kallady Lady Manning Bridge, these special fish are said to emanate a sound similar to singing. Believed to be particularly clear on nights near the full moon, the sound of the singing fish provide an unforgettable experience for those lucky enough to hear it! Travellers to the region looking for Sri Lanka boutique hotels by the coast can stay at Maalu Maalu Resort & Spa. This idyllic Sri Lanka resort has its own spa where you can enjoy some rest, relaxation and rejuvenation.
