Kalpitiya area will be developed as a tourist destination, Wayamba Development Authority Chairperson stated recently.
He said Kalpitiya and Arugambay are two of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Wayamba is still at basic; level and much more have to improve in the tourism industry of the area.
Three tourist information centres are located at Kurunegala, Badagamuwa and Yapahuwa.
