Beach lovers actually travel to Sri Lanka to experience the famous Bentota and Hikkaduwa beaches, which have developed personalities all of their own. These can basically be referred to as the very first Sri Lanka beach resorts. Hikka as it is fondly called and Bentota have a well developed infrastructure that includes a range of hotels and beach accommodation from star class to boutique to budget.
Seriously, when you holiday in Hikkaduwa and Bentota you can forget about the rest of the world as you enjoy these best beach holiday destinations. They more than deliver on the fun factor with soft sandy inviting beaches, a host of water activities and of course the freshest seafood! Bentota and Hikka are hubs of activity from beach fun to night time partying with events such as the Hikka Fest that rock throughout the night. International DJs, enticing food and drinks, a throbbing party atmosphere, it is no wonder people travel the world over for endless days of partying. Another fun thing to do in Hikkaduwa is to go on a glass bottom boat ride to see up close the beautiful coral reef around the area. If you prefer a more personal experience then try snorkelling among the reef and swim with the colourful fish in a magical underwater world. Divers too are in for a treat with the shipwreck or two that the area lays claim to. Hikka is also a great place to try your hand at some surfing as the conditions are good.
