Hikkaduwa Beach, Hikkaduwa Reviews - Write a Review

  • One of my favourite beaches in Sri Lanka. Love this place. There are turtles which you can actually touch and feed. You can swim with them too. And also there are a lot of fishes too. A great place to snorkel. I have been there many times as I love that beach. Sea is awesome there.

  • One of the most popular beaches in sri lanka. This beach had one of the most beautiful corals in the whole country. But most of it was destroyed from the Tsunami back in 2004! Its slowly regaining its original form but it'll take years to be as beautiful as it was before! Nonetheless snorkeling experience is still great. Who wouldn't wanna swim with the fish? There are huge wild turtles and you can feed them too. PS : Don't miss those wonderful beach sunsets!

  • Of all the beaches, we found hikkaduwa to be more vibrant. One of the highlights was spotting variety of fish & wild turtles right on the beach. You can surf, go on a glass bottom boat ride to see the corals and marine life or experience the lagoon boat safari. This beach has a few sea facing restaurants where you can order your pref.drink and food right on the beach.

  • Great beach and it’s safe to swim and to see wild turtles everyday,and the sunsets are amazing well worth a day out

  • Nice beach, with quite clear water, ideal for children and for any activity such as surfing snorkeling, swimming and dolphin and turtle watching. Funny to see a branch of fish near the beach and possibility to swim with them In some situations the gust could be strong
