  • The tourists did not have local couples dating at all, there are lots of seemed to be everywhere. Strong sunlight, wearing an umbrella Beach dating from around I've been seeing a lot of the look. I went to the beach because it is associated with when it comes to the temples.

  • This stretch of the beach was very popular with locals who arrived in buses from inland Sri Lanka. The main road runs right behind it so not a beach for relaxing/sunbathing.  more »
  • I definitely recommend visiting this beach and Temple. It is a short walk from the bus stop and when you will want to shorten the waiting for the next bus, this is a good place. There is also a lot of cheap snacks.

Where to stay in Matara

A couple of hotels stand close to the train station in Matara, as well as some guesthouses located on the side streets of the Fort district. But the greatest diversity of accommodations lies down by the coast. Matara Beach has some hotels and guesthouses right on the waterfront, while Polhena Beach to the west adds sprawling resorts into the mix, as well as homestays, high-rise hotels, and eco-lodges.
