Overview
Batticaloa Lagoon is a very large estuarine lagoon in Batticaloa District, eastern Sri Lanka. The city of Batticaloa is located on land between the lagoon and the Indian Ocean. The lagoon is surrounded by a densely populated region used for cultivating rice, coconut and other crops. The land is used for prawn fishing, shrimp farming and rice cultivation.

The lagoon has extensive mangrove swamps and some sea grass beds and it attracts a wide variety of water birds. There are several restaurants and hotels where you can enjoy your dishes while enjoying the panoramic views of the lagoon.
Batticaloa Lagoon is famous for its ‘Singing Fish’. On full moon nights, during the period of April to September, a faint but distinct musical sound resembling a plucked guitar rises from the lagoon waters in the area along the Kallady Bridge, a couple of kilometres off the town centre of Batticaloa. The mysterious music is attributed to a noise emanated from some form of a marine life found in the lagoon. The best way to listen to the music is to dip an end of an oar into the water and hold the other end to your ear.
