Hikkaduwa Beach, Hikkaduwa Reviews

  • Great beach for kids. Facing the beach, walk towards extreme left to meet two beautiful turtles that come to the shore to feed. Walk down the beach to the extreme right end (close to the coconut trees), step into the waters to see thousands of beautiful fishes. It will be like you are standing in an aquarium. If you have kids, don't give this beach a miss.

  • A very beautiful beach. Little crowded even during off peak season. As you step into the water, you are surrounded by schools of fish 🐠. You can see sea turtles. There are underwater activities like snorkeling, sea diving, surfing. If you want to take underwater pictures, you need to have your personal underwater camera. You can get fins and goggles from the diving stations. Locals recommend to learn surfing here because it is cheaper and the waves are lighter than other beaches around the world. Locals are very friendly here. This is definitely one of the places to visit if you love beaches.

  • Great beach. Not much waves cause the shallow area is protected by a reef. Safe to bath there with kids. Crowded in weekends. Best to visit in weekdays.

  • Nice but without any facilities. Few other things near diving or sea tours should be a BIG plus!

  • Lovely beach in Sri lanka. And also one of the best beaches in the world!
