Hikkaduwa Beach, Hikkaduwa Reviews

  • Plenty things to do, heap's of accommodation, restaurants and or bars to have a top meal friendly locals but that's Sri Lanka anyway , beaches are clean and safe for everyone. Tours to other areas reasonable on the pocket. Just a great place. Come at the right part of the year, and have a great holiday. Come and stay at the Villa Red Lobster, clean, bright, owner staff all helping you to have a fantastic stay.Good prices accommodation big brekky not more you could ask for, so get over here.

  • 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 touristy beach which lots of options for entertainment. Many restaurants and bars right on it as well, a lot of them completely overpriced and of low quality. Feels a bit like little Odessa as well but still: the beach itself is lovely, snorkelling is extremely fun (hundreds of different and colourful fish)

  • Situated 100km south of Colombo, popular for its diving and corals. Creating a beautiful and safe snorkelling area, to explore the large range of exotic fish. Also a popular destination for surfing and diving. Primarily a tourist attraction, tourists enjoy this beach as a great place to unwind and enjoy the clear blue skies and simply enjoy the sunshine and magnificent views on offer in Sri Lanka.

  • Nice but without any facilities. Few other things near diving or sea tours should be a BIG plus! The turtles and fishes transform a common beach in an amazing one: is the Hikkaduwa beach situation and is wonderful!
