Beruwala

Scenic BeachBeruwala is a town in Kalutara District, Western Province, Sri Lanka, governed by an Urban Council. The name Beruwala is derived from the Sinhalese word for the place where the sail is lowered. It marks the spot for the first Muslim settlement on the island.

A large population of Sri Lankan Moors, many of them gem merchants, still live in the town—particularly in the "China Fort and Maradana". "Masjid-ul-ABRAR" Maradana,(ESTD-920) a landmark of Beruwala and Sri Lanka's oldest mosque, was built by Somali traders on a rocky peninsula overlooking the town.

Beruwala is the starting point of the 130 kilometres (81 miles) long stretch of beach. In the past few years great strides have been made in the field of resort development in this area. The bay around remains ideal for bathing almost for the whole year.
