On 78 acres of prime land set against a tapestry of bright Blue Ocean, Citrus Kalpitiya will soon take shape as one of the most sought after resorts in the island. The spectacular beach frontage and the wide body of water that surrounds the property and connects to the sea, makes this location a veritable "aqua paradise" on earth. Tree laden, with Kumbuk , Tamarind and Coconut groves which add to the natural contours and beauty of the land, the environs of Citrus Kalpitiya will undoubtedly be nature at its best.
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.
