A Turtle breeding ground and lagoons teeming with wildlife, it is an ideal spot for nature enthusiasts.
Located almost 10kms east of Tangalle, Rekawa is a fishing village with mesmerising beaches on one end and a swampy lagoon on the other. Home to various types of aquatic life, Rekawa is a nesting hub for turtles. Rare species like hawksbill, leatherback, Olive Ridley and Green turtles choose shores scattered along this beach strip, owing to its less crowded sites and human interruption. Further there are many turtle hatcheries close to the beach strip, dedicated in protecting turtle nests. The ideal time to visit these turtle hatcheries is between the months of January to April, especially when there is a full moon.
