Dikwella

 

Dikwella is a charming scenic village on the southern coast of Sri Lanka. Beaches are shallow, calm and beautiful. The village itself is inhabited by unsophisticated people who live a quiet tropical life. The area is yet unaffected by mass tourism. Dikwella is the place for tourists who wish to witness and enjoy authentic southern Sri Lankan village life. Shady coconut plantations, picturesque stilt fishermen and white, deserted beaches make a perfect background for a relaxed holiday in Sri Lanka.

 

A great event which one can watch or even participate is the traditional Devil Dance typical of this area. Devil Dancers who are really traditional healers seek good health for sick people from mystical powers that are invited to help speed up the recovery process of illness.
