sri lanka beaches
Continuing to grow in popularity, Sri Lanka offers fine beaches and fascinating culture. It may not be as developed as some Indian Ocean islands but has many first-class beach hotels to pick from.
The most beautiful, wide and sandy beaches can be found in Bentota (South West) a thriving tourist resort with many hotels. However tucked away are many private boutique hotels like Taru Villa, River House and Club Villa that enjoy pools and awesome beaches. The South Coast has pockets of wide beaches Nov - April and lagoons for safe all year round swimming but generally the South coast suffers with the seasons and many beaches narrow off April - October. However, it does boast the best snorkelling reefs in Hikkaduwa and Unawatuna.
