Small island with literary value
sept. 2020
This is a small island situated at Koggala Lake but famous due to “Madol Duwa”-Children’s novel written by Mr. Martin Wickramasinghe. Main characters of “Madol Duwa” were Upali and Jinna who ran away to this island and lived at Madol Duwa until they reunited with family. The distance from mainland to Madol Duwa is minimal (about 20 minutes) but they overcharge for the boat ride.
Main attractions of the island are the well and “Sekku Gala” (සෙක්කු ගල). There are foot pathways through mangrove trees. Some of the trees have sign boards. As it is frequently visited by travellers pollution is also common.
I have visited at Madol Duwa as a part of visit to Koggala Lake.

Маленький дикий островок, удивительно, но в нем чувствуется своё очарование, чувствуешь себя как на необитаемом острове.

Sri Lankan author Martin Wickramsinghe's beloved children's story "Madol Duwa" (the Mangrove Island) makes a visit to this island a must for every Sri Lankan who ever read the book. A story on the lines of the Famous Five by British author Enid Blyton, it is a tale of the boy Upali and his friend Jinna who runaway to this island and live like Robin Crusoe until they are reunited with their family. The trip by boat takes about 20 minutes, and the island itself can be explored in about the same time. There is little left of the authors landmarks, but the remains of a stone machine to extract oil gives credence to the story. There are other islands to visit and view nearby, including Cinnamon Island where you can buy Organic cinnamon products and visit a Fish Spa. A good way to keep the kids occupied on a slow day.
