Overview

 Dickwella is a sea side town in the southern coast of Sri Lanka. Dickwella boasts some of the most beautiful stretches of beach with warm blue waters. It is quieter than the usual coastal towns of Sri Lanka. Apart from the usual beach activities Dickwella offers a very unique tourist attraction to which locals and foreigners have been flocking for years. This is the Dickwella Blow-hole located in Mawella, a small town in Dickwella. This feature is completely natural where sea spray due to the high water pressure sprays through a blowhole up to sometimes 40 to 50 feet high

A visit to this blow hole means a climb up some rocky cliffs to one of the best views of the surrounding Indian Ocean as well as the land dotted with coconut trees greets you on first sight at the summit. The sound of the water spurting up sounds like the rumbling of distant thunder and then suddenly there is hissing noise which is accompanied with a swoosh of water fifty feet right into the air along with the gentle sea spray. This is described my most visitors as an exhilarating experience

This happens usually during the monsoon season, which usually is off-season for beachside resorts in the southern coast of the island. This attraction even though off-season tends to draw massive crowds due to its beauty and strange allure.

Dickwella has many stretches of lonely beautiful calm beach for the traveler to rest and relax. The water for most of the year will be warm and clear. Some fishing and boating will be wonderful anytime of year in this part of the country. Dickwella also has some very picturesque hotels and guesthouses to stay whilst visiting. Waking up to the sounds of the waves crashing could be a bonus whilst visiting the blowhole. However, I think everyone who comes for the beach and relaxation make the time to go see this wonderful work of nature.
