Bentota Beach Reviews & Ratings

  • Yet another great beach towards the southern coastal area of the island. This long, broad sandy beach becomes very much live during October to April holidays. There are plenty of restaurants, guest houses and pretty much everything that a tourist needs in the vicinity.

  • One of the amazing beaches. Crystal water, white smoothy sands. You can see the sunrise and sunset from the beach side. It’s safes beach you can swim anything early morning , morning, afternoon , evening or even midnight. People is very kind, helpful and easygoing .

  • Entry to the beach is just beside the Taj resort entrance, you will have to cross the Taj property lawn. Beach is very clean with clear water and less crowd. I would recommend this beach for families. Enjoyed evening walk with very less people around which gave a private beach feel. Not sure if is always this peaceful. There are some big rocks with tress if you are looking some shade during afternoons.

  • very neat and clean beach

  • Great beach, for adults and children too.
