Pasikudah (Pronounced Paasi-Kudah, Tamil translation Green-Algae-Bay) or Pasikuda is a coastal resort town located about 35 kilometers northwest of Batticaloa, Batticaloa District, Sri Lanka.

Pasikudah is known to have one of the longest stretches of shallow coastline in the world. In other words, people walk kilometers into the sea because the water is only a few inches deep and the current is relatively weak compared to the rest of Sri Lanka's coasts.

Pasikudah is easily accessible from Trincomalee and Batticaloa, both of which cities have star class accommodation. Pasikudah is fast becoming as investors’ hub as foreign and local investors have shown interest in developing tourism along the beach and the government's strong economic policies have promoted development to a certain extent.
