Any coastal holiday in Sri Lanka is always a fun thing to do, and if you are in Bentota, here is how to make the best of your holiday.


The Bentota beach

Being a coastal area this is obviously one of the 1st things on your list that you must explore if you are put up at a property the likes of Heritance Ahungalla Hotel which is close to the waters. This beach is known for being a great place to relax and unwind in as it has a pleasant climate, amazing surroundings and shiny waters. At this beach, you will find an amazingly beautiful stretch of golden sands that are bordered by the deep blues of the Indian Ocean. The beach is also popular for having the option of various watersports that you will be able to partake in while you hang out here. These water sport include surfing, windsurfing, diving, parasailing, and jet skiing. All in all, the Bentota beach is a fun place for the entire family to hang out.


Visit the Brief Garden

This is the one places that almost everyone you encounter in this area will ask you to check out regardless of how long your trip is. If you want to spend time amidst greenery, beautifully designed and well-groomed gardens this place is where you must go to. The meticulously designed and creatively curated Brief Garden will certainly impress you. Most of the works and designs in this garden were inspired by the colonial era in Sri Lanka.


Visit the turtle hatchery

When you are travelling on the coastal areas of Sri Lanka you will find quite a lot of turtle and prawn hatcheries on your way to the fishing towns and Bentota is no different. If you are an avid animal lover or have an interest in nature and its processes, you must go to the turtle hatchery during your time in this holiday destination. Created with the main objective of preserving and safeguarding the turtle eggs on these beaches, a visit to this place is surely one that will be a memorable and enriching experience for you. During your visit you will also be able to look at the baby turtles that are taken care of in the hatchery until they get old enough to be released into the waters. If you are lucky and you time your visit well you might even be able to be a part of the process in which the baby turtles are let out into the water.


Tried the local cuisine

Most Bentota restaurants and eateries will offer authentic Lankan food for you to try. Again, being a coastal region, seafood is the primary ingredient here and you will find a variety of food on your table like prawn, crab and various kinds of fish.


Explore the town

It is always nice to know how the daily lives of the people at the place you are on a holiday in, and if you want to know what life in this coastal town is like all you have to do is take yourself out to the residential and the local market area and spend a few hours roaming around.
