Kalpitiya as a region is very strongly influenced by fishing. After the first tourists found their way to Kalpitiya about 10 years ago (after the end of the war), traditional handicrafts can be seen everywhere. Through the booming tourism a lot has changed. The profitable economy offers many families a new livelihood and promotes growth in all areas. De Silva is considered the initiator of water sports tourism in Kalpitiya and was one of the first to introduce Kalpitiya as a kitesurfing and windsurfing spot to the world and to market it as such.
Just a 5 minutes ride with a tuck tuck you reach the center of Kalpitiya town. Even there are not many attractions, you have the option to get a insight of the real life Sri Lankan inhabitants. In terms of progress, Sri Lanka is still behind the European standards in many ways, but you can still see tradition craftsmanship!
