Induruwa and Kosgoda

Turtle Hatchery

Induruwa and its neighbor Kosgoda, are Sri Lanka’s prime turtle tourism destinations. Several endangered species of turtles nest along the coastlines of these towns. In fact, the stretch of sand near here is the most important site for turtle nesting on the West Coast. The Turtle Conversation Project (TCP) has set up a watch scheme to safeguard the eggs laid on the Kosgoda beach. There are also many turtle hatcheries on the coast near the town. These are frequented by tourists who come to watch the baby turtles being incubated and also offers a decent beach and accommodation options while Induruwa boasts a beautiful stretch of coast and the sea here is safe for swimming. more
