The coastal town of Bentota boasts a number of seaside attractions to draw in guests. The golden sands of the beach serve the large package hotels in the main town, although some quieter spots can be found further along the coast. Turtle hatcheries also serve as a major attraction of Bentota, with different institutions doing good work to manage the population levels throughout the year. Known as a center of Chaplon tea production, the plantations and old estates here date back to the British colonial era, and bare the hallmarks of colonial British design.

Hidden gems in Bentota
Shopping in Bentota
Most of the accommodations in Bentota lie close to the beach and the railroad track running parallel to the seashore. Luxury resorts spill out onto the beaches of the coast, while a few simpler, squat hotels sit alongside them, providing fewer facilities, but still right on the beach, and close to the main restaurants and bars of the town. Look inland for a few quieter options, including rental villas, eco-lodges, and guesthouses, hidden along the streets that wind through the rural areas.
