Dikwella village

Dikwella is a small coastal village in the Matara district in Southern province of Sri Lanka. It is located 22 km east of the city of Matara. Dikwella is noted for its long sandy beach which is protected by headlands, reefs and sand-bars, making it safer for swimming. Largest seated Buddha statue of Sri Lanka's is the located in Dikwella, which is 50 meters tall. Walls in the rooms of the building behind the statue are decorated with a 'library' of colorful pictures depicting scenes from the life of the Buddha and punishments of miscreants.


This long sandy beach is largely protected by headlands, reefs and sand-bars, making it safer for swimming. The headlands have reefs along their rocks, close to the beach. At both the Pehambiya end and the western end, swimmers can snorkel out from the beach to watch colorful reef fish amongst the rocks. Local inshore fishermen, especially at the sheltered Pehambiya end, mostly use colourful small our outrigger canoes which are easier to manoeuvre over the seasonal shifting sand-bars.
