The Koyyawadi, Ilandhaiyadi and Alankuda coastal areas in Kalpitiya have been largely eroded by sea.

Many tourists said that they undergo many risks when they visit the area because of the sea erosion.

About a kilometer has heavily eroded now, residents said.

Although trees have been planted along the lower coast to prevent erosion and to attract tourists, the rough sea waves make them fall every day, they said.

Fishermen said that stones have been laid in the area to prevent sea erosion, but the destruction continues. The residents, therefore, urged the authorities to take steps to prevent sea erosion.
