Beautiful Madu river surounded by Mangroves
A coastal town in southwest Sri Lanka is called Balapitiya. It is situated in Sri Lanka's Southern Province. Located 80 kilometers (50 miles) south of Colombo, it takes about two hours to get there. The Madu River is the closest town to this one.

The second-largest wetland in Sri Lanka is Madu River, which is located in Balapitiya. The river, which contains 14 of the 24 species of mangroves found in Sri Lanka, is extremely biodiverse and spans at least 150 acres of land. One of the last remaining areas of mangrove forests is the Madu River wetland. The best place to observe prawn farming and conventional fishing techniques is there. It is also home to 300 different plant species and 250 different animal species, making it a haven for ecologists and botanists.
Bookings are accepted for both boat tours and bird watching tours. The Madu River safari, which lasts between one and two hours and gives visitors the chance to see a significant portion of the wetland, is accompanied by our trained professionals and starts at the mouth of the Madu River at Balapitiya. As the boat travels through dense mangrove forests, many aquatic bird, animal, and plant species are protected. During the boat ride, one may have the opportunity to see crocodiles, water snakes, tree snakes, and wild boars in their natural environments.
There are also 25 islands in the river, but only 15 of them have a sizable landmass and are safe to visit. The motorboat stops at several islands, including Cinnamon Island, where plantations with acres of cinnamon trees date back to the early 1900s. The island-based, centuries-old cinnamon plantation has been managed by a single family for many years. More information about the cinnamon harvesting procedure can be found here. Koth Duwa, one of the sizable inhabited islands in the Madu River, is a further stop on the Madu River Safari. An old Buddhist temple that spans the entire island and is housed on it is located there. The Bo-tree, Image House, and Dagoba are the temple's notable locations.

The fish spa in the middle of the river is another interesting activity to do while on the safari. As one navigates the mangroves, they will come across a number of rectangular fish tanks filled with Gourami fish. These fish tanks' main function is to offer fish therapy. The fish spa is surrounded by a beautiful natural environment, and you can enjoy unobstructed, picturesque views of the sizable mangrove forests.

Fiberglass boats are typically lighter than boats made of wood and other materials. Because they weigh on average more than aluminum boats, fiberglass boats tend to be more stable and have better seakeeping qualities. Considering that fiberglass boats are heavier and less susceptible to wind buffeting, they drift more slowly and steadily. A fiberglass boat offers a steady and silent working on the water, even when navigating through choppy seas and bad weather. Your boat's bottom or sides don't make a loud "lapping" noise like an aluminum or wooden boat would when water strikes them. This stops you from yelling at someone on the opposite side of the boat as you and your friends and family are enjoying your favorite water sport. Therefore, there is no reason to worry about security.Read Less
