Perhaps the most popular beach town on Sri Lanka’s western coast, Bentota is known for its namesake Bentota Beach. Stretches of golden sands lined by palm trees swaying gently in the breeze, crystal clear waters, a relatively untainted, tranquil and family-friendly atmosphere, and plenty of water sports—Bentota Beach has all the makings of a topnotch seaside getaway.
The clean and quiet surroundings make Bentota Beach a preferred spot for unwinding for locals and tourists alike; the sunset at the beach is nothing short of gorgeous. The peak season in Bentota witnesses moderate currents, which is excellent for a light swim and water sports such as water skiing and boogie boarding, to name a few. Indulge your taste buds with a hearty Sri Lankan meal or continental delicacies at any of the oceanfront restaurants in the vicinity.
The beach, along with the islands is also home to some of the high-end luxury resorts that offer its visitors to stay at the mesmerising beach with world-class facilities. Apart from that, some of the resorts even provide its customers with the service of ayurvedic spas and ayurvedic retreats. In a few words, a picture-perfect vacation on the Sri Lankan seashore is a guarantee on a trip to Bentota Beach.
