Karpaha Sands, Kalkudah Bay launches first active live beach webcam in Sri Lanka


The beaches of Sri Lanka need no introduction the world over. From stunning untouched swathes of sandy hills to the lustrous colours of the ocean, a little beach therapy goes a long way in making sure your holiday is absolutely perfect.

With the current restrictions on global travel putting a damper on vacation plans, the team at Karpaha Sands, Kalkudah Bay came up with an amazing idea, an active live beach webcam focused on one of the best beachfronts in Sri Lanka.

Karpaha Sands is the perfect destination for a romantic getaway or to celebrate a special occasion. This hidden paradise in sunny Kalkudah Bay exudes a cool arty vibe, with a 15km stretch of pristine beachfront, 17 luxurious and eco-friendly tented suites with outdoor showers, exquisite fresh cuisine, a soothing Ayurvedic spa, and art from around the world at your feet; all nestled in a secluded and intimate 15-acre old coconut plantation, perfectly situated to explore the East Coast.

With a strong focus on preserving the natural environment and bettering the neighbouring communities, Karpaha Sands is engaged in various eco and social initiatives.

Sponsoring beach cleanups, nurturing an organic garden, employing and training staff from the local village, treating and bottling drinking water in reusable glass bottles, purchasing fresh seafood from the fishermen on our beach, recycling compost, sourcing locally whenever possible, and supporting the Sri Lankan art scene, the resort is committed to the pillars of regenerative travel.
