Drive across to Kayts at dusk for stunning views of the surrounding area.
The Kayts Causeway is a road that brings you from Jaffna Fort across the water to the island town of Kayts. The memorable drive is best done at sunset, when the light falls softly on the landscape. Traces of the civil war are still evident in Kayts, where there are a number of beautiful but dilapidated houses that were abandoned by their owners.
On the road you can stop to see views of the well-preserved Dutch fort on Fort [link to Fort page] Hammenhiel Island, a 19th Century church and Kayts’ own Portuguese fort. It’s a scenic drive through the lagoons with fishermen, birds and farmers.
