    Stretched over 1.2 miles of private sandy beach, Bar Reef Resort in Kalpitiya offers rustic yet charming accommodation surrounded by landscaped gardens. From November to May, guests can hop on a daily boat in front of the Beach Club to watch dolphins and whales at close range. An infinity outdoor pool and on-site water sports activities are also available. The villas and cabanas available are simple but well-furnished. Each comes with a seating area and a private garden. The private outdoor bathrooms are equipped with cold-water showers. Bar Reef Resort is a 1-hour drive from Wilpattu National Park, famous for its leopards, elephants and bears.
