Shores kissed by glorious sunshine, the promise of wind-swept romance, speed-filled fun in the water and discoveries to be made on every visit; all this and more await at Bentota Beach, Sri Lanka!
The beach in Bentota is arguably the main draw of this idyllic south coast town. Look forward to lazing on the sand, swimming in the ocean and taking long walks at sunset. While there are plenty of places to stay here, you will find some luxury hotels in Sri Lanka that offer a more secluded hideaway along Bentota’s shoreline.
Of course, this heavenly setting makes Bentota Beach an ideal spot for a romantic retreat, honeymoon or even a wedding! Some local boutique hotels including the likes of Saman Villas offer everything from traditional wedding ceremonies to beachside dining for a truly special experience for couples.
Exciting Water Sports
No trip to Bentota is complete without engaging in some of the best water sports in Sri Lanka be it in the ocean or the river. Banana boat rides are a family favourite, while jet skiing, water skiing, wakeboarding, mono skiing and windsurfing offer plenty more thrills for those looking for that adrenaline rush!
There is much to discover away from the beach as well; amongst the best things to do in Bentota is to embark on trekking or cycling adventures to visit a local village and attractions like the historic Katukoliha Temple. You can also take a Bentota River cruise and plan a trip to the Lunuganga Estate with its beautifully landscaped gardens.
