  • The beach is wonderful but not in the rainy season as it has waves and it is very stormy while bathing

  • Very clean and nice beach. No rubbish and well maintained. Nice to walk along. The water is very warm! 
  • Bjentota Beach, this is the best place! The beaches here are fabulous, sand and clean water. So the water was waist deep, you have to go to 10 meters, this beach is very good for children. Go here, where the water is deeper, the current is very strong. Indeed, it is dangerous in these places away, most likely, you won't go back. Swim not far! If you want to snorkel and swim without children, I recommend two beaches. The first beach is located in the town of Hikkaduwa, this place is especially good for those who love diving and equipment, and instructors. The second a bit further in the fishing village of Unawatuna, a place of fairy tale. Here and you can dive and swim in plenty, and can swim as far as this is Laguna. I lived at The Eden Resort & is in town Spa, Beruwala, from tuk-tuk ride there for 200 Rupi Aluthgama station Railway Station, and train up these two beaches. If you listen to the Council, and if you have no children, do not waste time and immediately from the first day, go for a swim and relax at Hikkaduvu and Unavatunu. Hikkaduwa rljazh station just across the road. And here's to the Unavatunu Halle station to catch a tuk-tuk, 300-350 roupy is the maximum that you want to pay the driver. Do not give in their divorce! Good luck!!!
