About this activity

Day 1: The beach town - Bentota

Stop At: Hikkaduwa Beach, Hikkaduwa 80240 Sri Lanka
Hikkaduwa’s brilliant coral reef and bountiful underwater ecosystem makes it one of the best locations in the country for snorkeling excursions.
Hikkaduwa offers excellent snorkeling opportunities very close to the shore. Just 200m offshore, in shallow waters no more than 4m deep, a reef protects an expanse of brilliant coral which is populated by vividly colorful reef fish.
It is ideal fun and adventure-filled activity for professionals and amateurs alike. You can come and learn snorkeling if you are a beginner while experienced snorkelers can also enjoy Sri Lanka’s tropical waters and its colorful reefs and fish.
There are around 60 species of hard coral along with over 170 species of tropical reef fish in the fringing reef at Hikkaduwa National Park.
Very easy access from the most popular beach resorts. If you are looking for things to do in Hikkaduwa, you’ve come to the right place.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Galle Fort, Church Street, Galle 80000 Sri Lanka
Galle is a walled city surrounded by thick ramparts. These were built by the Dutch merchants that controlled the city in the 17th century. The ramparts are so thick that you can walk along them – start at one end and finish at the other. Look towards the ocean, see the old prison between the ramparts and the waves, check out the lighthouse and the clock tower and watch the schoolboys during cricket practice.
Inside the Galle Fort is where you can walk along the little streets and do some shopping. In between the boutique hotels and old houses, there are plenty of little shops and boutiques where you can buy plenty of local souvenirs and goods. The most notable of goods that can be found in the little Galle Fort shops are Sri Lankan gems and jewelry. You can also find handwoven sarongs and home linen.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Unawatuna Beach, Unawatuna Sri Lanka
Unawatuna, the beach town in Galle, has pretty good waves for surfing. They aren’t particularly big, but they are perfect for some fun in the ocean. They are also great for new surfers, especially beginners. Get in touch with Surf South Sri Lanka to grab some lessons if you still haven’t mastered the art of standing on a board! They also rent boards for travelling surfers that don’t have one.
There are plenty of restaurants and relaxing spots along the beach in Unawatuna. Have a dip, walk along the shore, drink some king coconuts, eat some seafood, sip on a beer and simply relax. Unawatuna is perfect for families as well, if you are looking for a kid-friendly beach in Sri Lanka.
