Beach Activities to be Done Surrounding Bentota – Coastal Getaways Full of Fun

Beach Activities to be Done Surrounding Bentota – Coastal Getaways Full of Fun



Doesn't sound much like an activity, but then sunbathing is a non-active "activity" that can be enjoyed in all its sun soaked glory when in Bentota. When looking to stay at budget or boutique hotels Sri Lanka has to offer in this southern coastal part of the island, find one right at the beach so you can get to that perfect spot on the sand. Do remember to bring lots of sunscreen and do not stay out too long under the sun.


Yoga & Meditation

Set amidst the soothing sounds of the sea, the beach areas here offer the perfect backdrops in which to do your favourite yoga poses or even meditate by yourself. The dawn brings with it quietude by the beach that is well suited for these activities; then during the evening hours, you can do them again with the added bonus of being able to take in a spectacular sunset.


Dining by The Sea

Beachside dining can be also considered an activity and a rather fun one at that! Some hotels in Bentota like Saman Villas set up intimate dinners overlooking the sea which is a wonderfully romantic surprise to organise for that special someone. If you want, you can choose to even put together a picnic breakfast or lunch and enjoy it on the shore, lulled by ocean breezes and a never ending horizon of azure.


Jet Skiing

Ever wanted to experience the thrill of speeding along to your heart's content? While you may not be able to do this on the open road, you can try it out on the water! Jet skiing is amongst the popular activities you can try while staying at hotels in Bentota and is well worth experiencing.


Body Boarding

With Bentota bordering the ocean, it is little wonder that this town and the surrounding coastal stretches are so popular with beach lovers. The waves that crash to the shore are perfect for those wishing to indulge in a bit of body boarding. All you need is a suitable body board; head out to sea and let the waves take you on a rip-roaring ride to the shore.



The Indian Ocean is a truly wondrous place and a dip in its waters is bound to leave you feeling revived and refreshed. Swimming is a relaxing activity one can try while spending time on the beach in and around Bentota. Do be mindful of waves and rough seas at certain months of the year; when accessing the beach in front of hotels or resorts do look to see if red flags have been put out indicating very rough waters. Of course, even if you don't get to swim you can always enjoy wading a bit from the shore and the amazing feel of the rushing waves drenching you from head to toe!
