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.

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

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Beautiful beach, great waves and lots of small sharks and turtles so see (we saw 2 GIANT turtles near the rocks while snorkelling, that was fantastic). The only reason this is not a 5* review is because of some of the people that work in the beach-front stores (surf board rentals etc) are very money grabbing and over charge for boards and other equipment hugely. Just be aware and make sure that you check how much it SHOULD cost before you go, so you can barter and ensure you aren’t ripped off. Also, people walk up and down the beach with snakes and monkeys for you to take photos with, be aware that such practices are extremely cruel and shouldn’t be participated in or fuelled with money. Having said that, the beach itself is fab! Definitely somewhere to check out :)
