Pottuvil Lagoon Safari
Pottuvil Lagoon is situated just 4km away from Arugam Bay town and it is a treasure trove of wildlife! You and your whole family will enjoy this lagoon safari as you cruise along the 200 acre lagoon which is one of the most pristine places on the island and is a hotspot for biodiversity. The lagoon is encompassed by a lush green mangrove forest which is home to many exotic species of birds and monkeys. Another common sight are crocodiles basking on the bank of the lagoon or whose heads peek from the murky water, only to disappear as your boat draws closer. But the lagoon’s real secret is that it’s a great place to spot elephants as many drop by the emerald waters to cool off and frolic as the sun sets.
