    Sad but unavoidable planxty, Hikkaduwa Date Added: Mar 20, 2015

    I was sitting on the beach at Hikkaduwa one day watching a reasonably calm sea and my mind turned to the appalling tsunami of 2004 which claimed so many lives here on the Southern Coast.

    I know it is most terribly sad but you cannot avoid seeing constant reminders here in the form of still ruined buildings, roadside cemeteries and memorials everywhere.

    I was in a contemplative mood that day and thought I would commit some of my (unscripted) thoughts to the flashcard.

    Tuk Tuk ride in the rain SWFC_Fan, Kosgoda Date Added: Aug 30, 2014

    This short video was taken during our visit to Sri Lanka in March 2014.

    We had hired a tuk tuk and driver for the day to see the sights in the local region around Hikkaduwa.

    This part of the journey was shortly after we left the turtle hatchery at Kosgoda - and the weather had turned a little wet!

    During our trip to Sri Lanka in March 2014, we took a short boat ride on the Madu Ganga river near Balapitiya in the south west of the country.

    We paid 4,500 Rs (£22) between us for a 1 hour and 40 minute boat trip, which included visits to the island temple of Kothduwa and the island of Mada Duwa (Cinnamon Island).

    Our boat ride saw us pass through mangroves and under several very low bridges where we had to duck!

    We hired a tuk tuk and driver for a day at a cost of 5,000 Rupees (£25) in order to see various sights in the area.

    Travelling in a tuk tuk is great fun - even if it involves the occasional scary moment as the drivers insist on weaving between traffic and overtaking on the wrong side of the road!

    The main road through Hikkaduwa (Galle Road) featured an almost constant stream of tuk tuks, mopeds and buses!

    Beach at Hikkaduwa SWFC_Fan, Hikkaduwa Date Added: Mar 29, 2014

    This short video was taken during our visit to Hikkaduwa, Sri Lanka in March 2014.

    It shows a small section of Hikkaduwa's long sandy beach. This stretch of beach is located just north of the Chaaya Tranz Hikkaduwa Hotel.

    The beach immediately south of here is popular with sea turtles.

    The beaches a short walk north of here are popular snorkeling spots.

    A number of large sea turtles could usually be found in the shallow waters of the beach in front of the Chaaya Tranz Hikkaduwa Hotel.

    Each morning, crowds of people would gather to feed seaweed to the turtles. Enterprising locals would get up early, bag the seaweed up and sell it to tourists.
