Bar Reef Resort

Bar Reef Resort (Formerly known as Alankuda Beach) offers superb oppourtunities to see and photograph Dolphins and Whales. The sea offers the treasures of dolphin and whale-watching as well as snorkelling over nearby spectacular coral formations.   In addition there is deep-sea fishing, kayaking, canoeing, sailing, kite and wind surfing.

Situated 3 hours north of Colombo and just over 2 hours from the airport, Alankuda Beach features a mix of four open-style single-roomed wattle and daub cabanas; two double roomed cottages; a striking open pavilion restaurant overlooking the Indian Ocean; a beach bar; and a 40 meter fibre optic-lit pool, all laid out in a pleasing and improbable mix of the traditional and the new.

Situated on an undiscovered and deserted two kilometer stretch of a pristine private beach, Alankuda offers a truly relaxing, discrete and romantic getaway. The azure, warm sea is almost always mirror-calm and welcoming during the months of November to April.
