Clean, rich and absolutely enchanting, Bentota beach is famous for a plethora of water sports ensuring every member of the family has a wild and adventurous time in these waters.
If you have a need for speed and want to experience the pure adrenaline rush of “flying” along the water then water skiing is for you! The activity involves a very fast speedboat that is attached to a strong and long line with a handle at the end that participants will have to hold onto. You are also given a pair of “skis” though it is customary to alternatively use a single small board that you can strap your feet into. The rest is just a pure action packed adventure as the speed boat will propel you at furious speeds for an unforgettable ride.
Banana boat riding is a wonderful group or family water sport which everyone can enjoy. A banana boat is a type of large inflatable tube that participant can sit on; of course merely sitting will not suffice for you will also have to hold on and enjoy the ride as it gets pulled by a speedboat at exhilarating speeds. Consider staying at a resort in Bentota such as the AVANI Bentota Resort & Spa which offers easy access to the many water sports in the area.
For deeper exploration, diving in Bentota is a great option to try. Those without proper diving certification will have to get certified at a training centre. You will be rewarded with a chance to experience mesmerising sights deep beneath the waters where you will find everything from colourful coral to fascinating fish species.
