Bentota Beach

Kick back and relax after your Sri Lankan adventures

You’ve been all around Sri Lanka - seen the ancient ruins, tea plantations, cities and jungles - and now it’s time to enjoy the seaside for a few days

Or maybe you just fancy a lazy beach break. Luckily for you Sri Lanka’s south coast has miles and miles of scenic beaches, sheltered bays and coastal lagoons featuring a fantastic array of accommodation - from budget backpacker hangouts to fine luxury hotels. We are quite fond of the smaller boutique properties dotted along the coastline, and we’ve hand-selected a few recommended ones for your holiday.

Some parts of the coastline like Unawatuna and Hikkaduwa are lively and sociable, others like Weligama are better for swimming, surfing and water sports, while quieter spots slightly further afield like Tangalle are home to secluded and exclusive properties. Keep an eye out for the traditional stilt fishermen perching in the shallows during high tide, and at certain times of year you might spot some turtles hatching on the beaches.

If you fancy going whale watching then head to Mirissa where early morning boat trips will get you up close to these mighty mammals of the sea. We also offer the option to spot whales by luxury yacht or plane.
