Hello everyone, Today I'm going to share various travel experience with you where I went beautiful island very nearest to Sri Lanka. This island name is Battalangunduwa. Battalangunduwa is an island in the beautiful island of Kalpitiya, about 30 km away from Kalpitiya.

We came from Colombo to Negombo. We traveled to the Kalpitiya jetty from the Kalpitiya bus leaving Negombo main bus stand. It took us about 2.30 hours to get there. We started the journey by boat. 350 rupees for a ticket.

There was very good climate for the boat safari. Before went Battalangunduwa I have been boat safaris of my past life. So my feeling wasn't changed.

We could see Dolphin's dances on the ocean. They are friendly and helpful fish species to humans. If boats going on the way dolphins show their talents.

The sunlight gave brilliant reflection to the sea waves.

After spent 3.15 hours we could reached Battalangunduwa island. I felt I was alone in this island because whole island surrounded by Indian ocean. But perfect location for enjoyment and beach camping.

Battalangunduwa is a wonderful island inhabited by our own Sri Lankan people, who have made their living by the sea. We started walked across island since beach.

Before heading to the island, we bought things to cook and water from Kalpitiya. Because we knew that we would have to pay three times as much to get water from the island.
