Hikkaduwa Beach, Hikkaduwa Reviews

  • A magnificent tropical sandy beach, blue waves. Plenty of hotels can be found as this is specially a destination of tourism. People can go swimming in the sea, there are many safe places to swim apart from snorkeling.

  • Beautiful beach.. Only 1 hour from colombo via southern expressway. Can snorkel and have a sunbath.

  • Beautiful beach with Crystal clear waters. We came to see corals but due to the sea being "rough", none of the boats went out. However we had our fun in the sea. Would definitely recommend this to anyone travelling this way.

  • A very beautiful beach with a splendid scenery. Many tourists visit here. It's safe to swim and you can go snorkeling here.

  • One of the Surf and beach highlights of S/L. Come in the dry non monsoon offshore season for best surf. Great coral reef breaks but dangerous for learners. Stay near the shore otherwise. Great coral snorkling. Plenty of accommodation and restaurants along the parade. Beauty personified. For an extra experience hire a scooter and go inland to visit the Moon stone quarries. Mind blowing.
