Situated at a distance of approximately 300 kilometers from Colombo, Batticaloa is famous for its picturesque lagoon and singing fish.
On full moon nights (poya) a faint but distinct musical sound arises from the lagoon waters. This is attributed to a sound send out by a kind of fish found in the lagoon. A Dutch Fort near the lagoon is another tourist attraction.
