Patanangala beach, Yala, from space

Google map satellite view in this post is of Patanangala beach in Sri Lanka’s Yala National Park. The rock outcrop that is emblematic of this beach is at the bottom end of the map/satellite image.

The official wonderer of the Sri Lankan blogospehere has a succinct post on Patanangala beach with some link. Since I’m still bobbing about in the tsunami of life I’ll let him do the show and tell.

Have a happy year weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. I think the old place we used to go to see the beach was somewhere between the marked point and the rocky outcrop. After the Tsunami, the earlier point was abandoned and now visitors go to the place where the Tsunami monument is built (Near the destroyed wildlife bungalow).

    As per the records 47 people died here during Tsunami.


  2. kiri: Family friends of some relatives were kill at some seaside hotel/bungalow in Yala. I wonder if it was near Patanangala.

    Pericles: Did you take any pics ??? I’d be too mesmerised to remember the camera ๐Ÿ™‚


  3. Too bad that boat ….which shows Sri lank has a population splurge…..see what’s happening at Great & little bases rock ? Fishermen are letting tourist divers plunder the wrecks now !

    Love da photo mate n


    1. Vut tu du kno? ๐Ÿ˜‰ I guess underwater plundering will go on now that the war is over. Or maybe the Navy has time to focus on those sorts of things.

      Have you gone diving in those parts?

      The photo’s from Google Earth btw ๐Ÿ˜€ For some reason they have high resolution shots of parts of the Yala coast.
