Sangaman Kanda Lighthouse – සංගමන් කන්ද ප්‍රදීපාගාරය

Sangaman Kanda Point (Sangamankanda) is the most eastern point in Sri Lanka. The beaches here are still unspoilt and as wide as 100 meters at some places. The Sangaman Kanda Lighthouse has been built in 1947 with a height of 25feet. This has been destroyed during the 2004 tsunami and only a 15feet of the light house now remains.

Sangaman Kanda lies on the Potuvil – Kalmune route. This is a small hillock lying close to the road. There are no directions to this point from the main A4 (Colombo-Batticaloa highway). There are directions to “Light house Beach Hut” as some junctions which will take you the light house. These are narrow gravel roads and we found Google Maps the best guide going insearch of this site. The vehicle of a bike can be taken right up to the beach trough plantation plots.

The beach at Sangamankanda is massive and the sea is calm unlike in Arugambay. In some places sometimes widening up to about 100 meters. No one visits this beach except a traveller visiting the lighthouse.
