Bentota Beach - Review

Having a lovely, picturesque shore, the Bentota beach stretches across for miles. Head over to have a leisurely walk along the beach or for a quick swim in the sea. However, visit early in the morning or in the evening, afternoon tends to be very hot and humid. Many of the hotels and accommodations are situated near the beach, so one can walk down to it to catch a beautiful sunset or a serene sunset. Activities such as snorkelling can be enjoyed in the sea waters.

Bentota Beach, Bentota Reviews

  • Perhaps the most beautiful beach in Sri Lanka. River meets the sea, beautiful waves on a very long and beautiful sandy beach. Most exquisite sun sets for nature lovers. At the end of the beach there is a helicopter Base for tourist rides ; We had the chance to take a helicopter ride over Bentota, it was simply amazing, the pilot pulled some stunts, not for the weak of hearts. A must visit when in Sri Lanka.

  • We stayed at The Surf, Bentota with rooms that opened directly onto the beach via a well manicured lawn. Beautiful views of the waters, breathtaking sunset views and nice sand and surf. We had a great two days and will hopefully return back sometime soon. Very Clean, beautiful beach where the waves are reasonable mostly, so swimming and bathing is easy. Good straight stroll possible. So many resorts and hotels in the beach front

  • Beautiful beach, an awesome experience of life. Best place in Sri Lanka to visit. You can’t stop yourself to praise beauty of nature. Local restaurant and hotels has good hospitality. Restaurant serves fresh juice without any adulteration. Clean water and clean white sand. Get surrounded by all the greenery and blueness of sea.

  • Really stunning beach, a great stroll and spectacular sunset

  • We went there in Morning. The sun was less brighter than other days because of the clouds, but after few hours it totally changes to a full sunny mode. Anyway the sea was awesome, good looking, Could see through the water. There wasnt much waves that day. So it wasnt good for surfing. But then i saw there were so many water-air-activities there. We had a great time there. The beach was not polluted so keep it clean.
