A short boat – ride off the beach and you may visit Pigeon Island which lies 2 Km off the coast of Nilaveli, great for diving, snorkeling and sea bathing.
You may also visit the recently re-opened Marine Park which was closed for nearly two decades. Visitors could enjoy the rare corals and marine animals and of course during the tour observe endemic and migrant bird species.
The Pigeon Island National park extends over 450 hectares and the wildlife authorities are planning to increase the facilities to visitors in the near future.
