Ussangoda is located in between Ambalantota and Nonagama on the Colombo -Katharagama Road. It is a nature reserve bordering the southern beach of Sri Lanka.
The beach is amazing and not recommended for swimming. The nature of soil in the park is quite different from the lands around. Soil is reddis and there are tiny bush forests around it.
Among folk stories about Ussangoda, falling a meteor is the main story. High concentration of Iron related metals/minerals in the soil has given the color of red to the soil of area.
