The food we had there was one of the neatest and most well prepared Sri Lankan style meals we had in Sri Lanka. The service provided by the staff was highest quality(Felt like they were under the command of someone all the time :)) Upon inquiry we were told all these guys have gone through at least the basic military training.

We were here in June 2013.The two rooms we occupied were basic, yet spacious clean and comfortable, had air conditioning, and bath rooms were extremely clean. Linen and pillows were fresh. Next time we go to Sri Lanka we will plan on staying here longer and will definitely stay at one of the over the water bungalows.

The ships pass by quite close and they sometime anchor close to the shoreline. I'm not sure of the cleanliness of the waters due to this reason. The waters are at it's best early morning and late afternoon. Since there isn't any shade and coarse sand gets heated up, it becomes not to enjoyable during the day when the sun is up.
Also there is a wonderful wooded hiking trail that takes you to another little cove ideal for swimming and pictures.
