Brief Garden - Bevis Bawa, Beruwala

3.8
#1 of 7 in Things to do in Beruwala
Exotic and lush, Brief Garden - Bevis Bawa once belonged to the most renowned landscape architect in Sri Lanka. Located 10 km (6.2 mi) from Bentota, the garden adopts a jungle habitat aesthetic, with thick leaves encroaching on the scattered paths. A vast array of sculptures fill the garden, while many hidden spaces with benches, tables, ponds, and a bathing fountain add charm to this unique attraction. Keep an eye out for exotic birds and monkeys while exploring this intimate green space.

    We spent about an hour or so here. It was nice, but the weather was really humid that day and our kids were getting a bit cranky. The gardens are well kept and we would love to live in this house, it'...  more »

    Rather rustic place. Worth a visit if one is travelling downsouth. Not worth going a long distance only to see it. Definitely not worth 1000/- to see both garden and bunglow. However and admirable collection of books and antiques though

    A lovely little gem, well worth a visit. Soak up the beautifully landscaped garden, obviously made with lots of love and imagination.

    Approaching this location is slightly a tedious task as per the conditions of the roads. It is sort of a gloomy place as you reach the entrance. There are two packages from which one could choose. To watch the garden with the bungalow or Only the garden. This place is well isolated from the surrounding and is calm and quite. May require about 1 - 1 and half hours to cover the garden. Good for couples..

    As a photographer it's one of my favorite places to shoot and to be at! The gardens are so well maintained and the old house gives me a glimpse of our beautiful islands heritage!

    Excellent landscape experience. If you are visiting down south, this place is recommended for a stop by for a while. Drive to the place it little tough due to narrow road but it's well worth experience.
