    I have been there one time. very beautiful islet with wonderful beaches flora and fauna. every sri Lankan should visit this place at least one time though you are a catholic or not. sad thing is dumping of garbage by pilgrims and cutting down trees by pilgrims and organizers of the event. I think NAVY can take rigorous actions to save the Islet from so called pilgrims cumming from India and Sri Lanka
