  • Hangout place for family and friends. This is not the ideal place to take a swim in the ocean. For swimming, Polhena beach is a naturally shallow one with no rough waves coming at you making it the perfect location for a safe and enjoyable salt bath :D. Matara beach has quite the nightlife with numerous street food and a play area for kids. During holidays, finding a parking spot can be a troublesome task. If you wanna enjoy the sunset while in matara, this is the place to be.
  • Beautiful beach that was good place
  • There are several beaches within a 10 km radius of the city of Matara. These beaches are lying so close to eachother , but can be almost the opposite of eachother. Their are quiet beaches where you can be the only one around and their are busy beaches. Beaches full of locals and beaches full of tourists. Beaches good for swimming, surfing or snorkeling. Beaches from wich you can take a boattrip to go whale watching, dolphin watching or diving.
  • Lovly beach
  • Good for holiday
