Blue Water Wadduwa

Taprobane, Serendib, Ceilao, Zeilan, Ceylon, Sri Lanka - no matter what the era, what the name, the island has always attracted the discerning traveller and often evoked comparisons with Paradise. It's not difficult to see why. Marco Polo's remark "the finest Island of its size" is important in this respect, for is a veritable microcosm. Indeed most famous foreign resident, Sir Arthur C. Clarke, once wrote: "The island is a small universe; it contains as many variations of culture, scenery and climate as some countries a dozen times its size."

Wadduwa is a town situated in the western coast of Sri Lanka about 35km south of Colombo. It's a very popular tourist attraction in Sri Lanka, with golden beaches that would enchant anybody in the world. It's also famous for its rich cultivation of coconut palms and as a major producer of toddy & vinegar.

The Origin of the Name

It is said that there were many native indigenous doctors in this area in the past. The name for native doctors in Sinhalese Language is 'veda mahaththayaa', thus comes the name 'veda doova' meaning the land of the native doctors. It has later become 'Wadduwa'
