The old coastal town of Beruwala embraces the beautiful landscaped garden ‘Brief’, the gleaming white lighthouse, a grand mosque, vibrant fishing culture and the list continues.
Light of Beruwala
A ten-minute scenic boat ride from Beruwala to the quaint Barberyn Island, home of the lighthouse which offers a spectacular view from the top. Set against a picturesque backdrop of coconut palms, this draws many visitors from Bentota hotels.
Mosque on the hill
Sitting atop a small hill overlooking the mighty ocean, Kechimalai is believed to be the oldest mosque on the island, a striking white structure against clear blue skies and the golden beach beneath visited by many guests from Cinnamon Bey Beruwala.
‘Brief’ yet not brief
A beautiful encounter with nature as you saunter through the acres of landscaped garden, lush foliage interlocking overhead on scattered walkways, sculptures tucked in at random corners, ponds and fountains providing a soothing balm to your aesthetic senses.
Catch the excitement
The sea breeze, a taste of salt, birds hovering above, animals looking for scraps are all a part of the hive of activity at the Beruwala fish market. Sharks, mantas, tuna and others in bucket loads from the moment the sun rises around 6 am, an everlasting memory.
