Situated at the North most corner of Sri Lanka, Point Pedro, believed to have named after the Dutch sailor, who found it to be the north most corner of the country.
Just ten minutes away from point Pedro is the lighthouse, standing 31-meter tall. It looms into view from afar, white in striking contrast to the bright blue skies. Built in 1931 to guide passing boats and ships, its light is believed to have been powerful enough to extend 10 nautical miles into sea. However, it has only been used till the 1990s and today stands more of a monument than a navigation aid. Today is stands inside the point Pedro naval base unwelcoming visitors and accompanied by gullsandlarks who soar high around its peak.
