Watersports and Fishing

Deep-Sea Fishing

Fishing off Kalpitiya is probably one of the Oceans best kept secrets – chase small to medium sized Tuna with the Dolphins or go even further out for big game! Catch Yellow Fin Tuna, Blue Fin Tuna, Sail Fish, Seer Fish, Marlin (including the elusive Black Marlin), Barracuda and many others. Fishing spots are known by the locals and are usually a bit further out. The best time to head out fishing is dawn and dusk.


Bar Reef is one of the most bio diverse reefs around the Island. Loaded with 156 different species of coral and 283 species of fish and about a two-hour boat ride from Villa Santé. Alternatively there is a smaller reef about 15 minutes away that is much closer to shore.
