Puttalam is a predominantly Muslim town in the at Sri Lanka’s northwestern town. Puttalam is not a major tourist destination and not worth a longer stay when you are a first time traveller and like to see as many beautiful places within your holidays as possible. Better cut the inconspicuous Puttalam from the shortlist in this case. Kalpitiya Peninsula at the other side of the Puttalam Lagoon is more inviting with its long sandy beaches or kitesfurfing activities or dolphin watching tour. Nochchiyagama to the northeast of Puttalam is a better starting point for safaris in Wilpattu National Park than Puttalam. Puttalam in itself is interesting only for ethnologists or others wholike to meet people most of all. Thhe town and its hinterland are inhabited by variuous ethnic minorities.
