Batticaloa beach is located on the east coast of Sri Lanka.
Situated at a distance of 314 km from Colombo, Batticaloa is famous for its 'Singing Fish' and picturesque lagoon. On full moon nights a faint but distinct musical sound rises from the lagoon waters. This is attributed to a noise emanated by a kind of fish found in the lagoon. A Dutch Fort near the lagoon is another tourist attraction.
