Calido beach Kalutara is a very popular beach not only among the local residents but also among tourists. Kalu Ganga The Black River get a 90 degree turn closer to Kalutara Bodhiya and run few kilometers along the beach before reaching the sea. Calido Beach is the thin piece of land, which run in between Kalu Ganga and Sea.
Unfortunately, the beach conservation projects that were successfully carried out in the area washed away with those monstrous gigantic waves in that time. Currently there is nothing remaining in the area except the beach which also has sandy play area where locals used to play Foot ball in the evening. The beach is commonly populated by young and old couples. As one can expect, there are many illegal activities happening in the area all the time. Calido beach was declared as a Tourist zone last year by the current Government and management was handed over to a one of the local leading Casino operating centers in Colombo.
In June , a proposal has been put forward to have a nude beach in Kalutara and Stardust Casino has sought the approval from the relevant authorities. Kalutara Municipal council superintend, C. According to Mr. Wasantha de Silva who is in charge of Calido beach project agrees that there were discussions on the proposals but refuses to give more information regarding it. Kalutara has been renowned as a religious town for many decades in the country.
As far as Sri Lanka is concerned it is not different to any other nation in the world when it comes to human behaviour. On the other hand what good the religion has done when it comes to crimes commited. It is keeping its eyes closed when so much of crime done in the name of the religion.
So called religious people themselves are unable to understand the need of equalities. So the religion has to change or man has to change to stop all these inhuman behaviours. I agree there are people who do not understand the need of equalities, human rights. But I do not generalize it to any group of people. There are good and bad people in any religion or ethnicity. Anyway religion is not what the followers do.
What a mentality you have, You say accepting same sex marriage is worse. This is why our country always remain in the 3rd world, its because of the mindset. You marry a woman because you are attracted to women emotionally and physically, if someone attracts to their same gender he or she should be given the privileges to marry who that person wants. Its not all about sex, give it a thought. Seriouly whats the big deal of Nudist beach,,,, what so biggie about seeing people having fun naked in an open area or matter of fact being relaxed,,,, well i do not see the where our senses have gone, i mean we publicly show brutality killing, rape,murder, hatred openly which is horrific and creates pain to someone,,,, and such videos is watched by the whole family …..
Thanks DillonDP for your valuable comments. Your comments are always encouraging us. We have not identified this as a crime but we think this is the wrong place for the first ever nudist beach in Sri Lanka. We have enough places in Sri Lanka that we can use for this purpose.
I think the best place is the Rumassala beach where one can even now go and be nude. I have been in this place and the feeling you get when you see Kalutara Bodhiya from this place is so remarkable. I also agree with your comments about crimes and normalcy that they have gained. Thanks again! Nudity doesnt have to always have a sexual context to it. We have to realize that all nudity is not sexual and everything sexual is not naked.
Should be allowed for the people over sixty years enabling young ones to understand what they all will be later and to know much about life. I think location is suit for the purpose because that can be isolated from locals. It was reported today that Sri Lanka tourist board and higher officials in the government have come to a conclusion to establish Nude beaches in Sri Lanka. The final discussion has been held at Peacock Beach Hotel in Hambanthota.
That is nice. Only one thing this country was lacking. After this Calido beach we are proud nation in the universe. I love it. Mama harima Kamthi ekata. I would like to participate to inauguration. I LOVE it. Just imagine the the people we see fully dressed up naked. I visualize them in my mind and I see the devals lord Buddha chased from Mahiyanganaya.
I doubt of any type of sexual arousal if thats the reason that prevents nude beaches in Srilanka. If nude beaches are opened for locals many with proper senses will run away after seeing our Yakkas. We love Nudity and hope more people would try outdoor nudity here in Sri Lanka — young, old, male and female. However, the Kalutara Bodhiya should not be the backdrop for it.
Another approved location with enough seclusion and privacy would be great and we look forward to it. Until then, we will, like others into it, take a few risks…. Lets have some fun. Unfortunately, our ppl will start staring at naked human bodies just like pirmitive apes…. Let it go……… May be it is time for some hunks and chicks in SL to show their beautiful tan skin…. The biggest problem is that our people dont understand how much fun it would be to have a place like this.
I went to the Greek islands last year and discovered nudist beaches. I love it so much I am going back this year for 3 months. It really has nothing to do with sex or sexuality. I would visit myself. I will be in Sri Lanka soon and wish the beach was operating now! Definitely the wrong place to have a nude beach. Also, as a person from the area I know so many bad things were happening in the mini jungle of Calido beach. Kalutara police raided this area several time and arrested local couples.
