India Tour With Sri Lanka Beach Holiday

Which Sri Lanka Beach Resort Is The Best For You? The Top Beach Hotels In Sri Lanka
 Waikkall And Marawila
 

West Coast Beaches

Waikkal And Marawila Beaches

•Quiet resorts among fishing villages to the north of the island’s airport that are ideal for those who hate long transfers, are looking for value for money all-inclusive accommodation and easy access for day trips to the elephant orphanage, Kandy and the Cultural Triangle.

 Negombo
 
Wide And Sandy Negombo Beach

Negombo Beach

Sri Lanka’s largest beach resort is only 15 minutes from the Airport. If you dislike long transfers, this is the best option for a beach stay in Sri Lanka.

• The main resort area lies to the north of town along Lewis Place, where lots of local restaurants, shops and bars alternate between beach hotels that are aimed at budget, 3 star and 5 star holidaymakers. Negombo therefore attracts a very cosmopolitan group of holidaymakers.

• The resort contains a long, sandy beach that is very wide in places, ideal for beach games like volleyball. The sea is not very suitable for sea-bathing. Snorkelling and diving is possible on outer reefs from Nov – Apr.

Mount Lavinia Beach

Mount Lavinia is an ideal place to combine a beach holiday with visits to the capital city of Colombo. The city’s shopping malls are only about 20 minutes away. There is a little private beach next to the public beach which is popular during evenings and weekends. Sea swimming is not recommended.

 Wadduwa And Kalutara
 

Beach At Kalutara

Wadduwa And Kalutara Beaches

Wadduwa and Kalutara have developed as resort areas due to their relative ease of access to Colombo Airport. The transfers usually take between 2 and 2.5 hours depending on Colombo traffic.

• A string of 3, 4 and 5 star resort hotels line the beaches to the south of Colombo. At the northern end, Wadduwa is the closest to the capital with Kalutara to the south, a beautiful location where the Kalu Ganga River estuary meets the Indian Ocean in a huge lagoon.

• The beaches are long and straight with lots of coconut palms and a thickly populated coastline of fishing villages and market towns.

Wadduwa - Excursions And Things To Do

• The Kalu Ganga River offers opportunities for River Boat Trips up the massive estuary to the interior.

• The capital city of Colombo is only a 1.5 hour taxi ride away, and is an ideal location for shopping, with some of the cheapest clothes in Asia.

• The interior has lush landscapes that lead to the massive Sinharaja Rainforest, one of the most important bio-diversity spots on earth!

• With an early morning departure you can get to Kithulgala, the island’s finest White Water Rafting destination for easy Grade 2 / 3 rafting.

 Bentota And Beruwela

Bentota Beach

Sri Lanka’s most famous beach resort is a beautiful succession of bays and sandy coves. The finest beaches in Sri Lanka start from here southwards.

• Some of the island’s best beach hotels are located at Bentota. The northern area (Beruwala) has reef protected beaches with shallow seas that are ideal for sea bathing. Alutgama in the middle has the lovely lagoon of the Bentota River, ideal for watersports. Towards the south is a stretch of natural beach vegetation and coconut groves that hide a myriad of exclusive boutique and villa-type hotels.

• Unfortunately with such popularity, the beaches do have their share of touts or ‘beach boys’ who can be somewhat of a nuisance.

Bentota - Excursions And Things To Do

• The Bentota River provides plenty of opportunities for River Boat Trips that go far up-river through beautiful mangroves and idyllic scenery.

• Beaches to the south are famous for turtle nesting sites and the Kosgoda Turtle Hatchery is a favourite destination for visitors.

• The interior has lush landscapes that lead to the massive Sinharaja Rainforest, one of the most important bio-diversity spots on earth!

•With a stopover night you can visit Yala National Park, famous for its Leopards, or Uda Walawe National Park with over 500 wild elephants.

Water Sports At Bentota Lagoon

• For beginners to watersports, the more tranquil waters of the Bentota River and Lagoon offers an ideal training zone before heading out to the challenge of the ocean. Diving operatorsa can take you out to sea for wreck dives. You will see grouper fish, stingray and sharks to name just a few.
