    February 22, 2020

    Once more extension of beach clean-up drive of the Sri Lanka Navy, mooted in view of conservation of beaches around the island, was successfully carried out at several beaches  in the Eastern, Southern, North Central and South Eastern Naval Areas, on 10th, 15th and 16th February 2020.

    As part of the programme, Sandy Bay beach in Eastern Naval Command, Piyargama beach in Thalaimannar in the North Central Naval Command, Pothuvil Ulla beach in South  Eastern Naval Command were cleaned by the Navy. In the same vein, the Navy also cleaned-up the beach area extended to Devata, Paravi wella beach in Tangalle, beach area from  Boosa to Rathgama and Idivinna beach belonging to the South Coast. The untiring effort of the naval personnel assisted by the school students and civilians resulted in restoring  the previous charm of the beaches which had been severely polluted due to human activities and natural reasons.

    Under the directives of Commander of the Navy, Vice Admiral Piyal De Silva, naval personnel in each Naval Command are engaging in keeping the coastal belt around the island  clean and free of pollution to draw the attraction of both local and foreign tourists.
