The Kalpitiya waters are home to thousands of dancing dolphins who gambol alongside the boats that dot the horizon. Dolphin–watching in Kalpitiya is a unique and exhilarating experience which portrays nature at its most spectacular. Additionally, Kalpitiya is located in close proximity to Wilpattu, one of the best known wild life sanctuaries in the country. Home to Leopard, Elephant, Bear and many other species of wild animals and birds rarely sighted in any part of the world today, Wilpattu is an easy drive from Kalpitiya.
