Kosgoda

Kosgoda Beach Resort is a located about 105km from the International Airport in Katunayake in a secluded Coconut grove overlooking the Indian Ocean. Kosgoda, being a coastal village located on the south western stretch of the Island provides a very calm and relaxing atmosphere for Holiday makers.

Kosgoda is very famous for its Turtle Hatchery-operated by the Wild Life Protection Society in Sri Lanka. It was established in 1981 to protect Sri Lanka’s Turtles from extinction. The hatchery pays Fishermen for eggs that they collect at night along the sandy beach. Visitor’s can see huge tanks filled with new born Turtle Hatchlings. After being fed the Baby Turtles are taken to the Sea and released when they are 2-4 years days old, usually during the safer hours of darkness. Although October to April is the main laying season, some eggs can be found at Kosgoda throughout the year.
