Fabulous experience, and great for bird-spotting. This is a very nice drive on a very long marine road leading from the mainland to one of the nearby islands of Jaffna.

This is one stretch of land that one must watch for a couple of hours to watch the colors change with the changing of daylight. the reflections & the silhouettes in the evening & morning create a fantastic spectacle a treat to watch.

I am presuming that the road across the causeway has been renewed following the end of the civil war. It provides a spectacular way of connecting mainland Jaffna with the several islands that lie off the northwest coast of Sri Lanka
