7 Exciting Activities To Enjoy On Bentota Beaches In Sri Lanka - Enjoy your time in Bentota

Sri Lanka is a tropical island that is filled with so many locations for beach lovers and Bentota is one such place that has a great beach plus several other exciting excursions in the area that you can try.


Explore the Bentota Beach

It is no surprise the first attraction on the list is to explore the beautiful, calm, and serene Bentota beach in all its glory. This beautiful beach is not as populated as Hikkaduwa or Mount Lavinia beaches so you will be able to find moments of peace and calm when you are at the Bentota beach. If you love watching the sunrise, plan to go for a walk in the early hours to witness a breathtaking view of the sunrise.


Enjoy a beach party

Lists that discuss things to do in Bentota will be incomplete without a beach party to enjoy its thriving nightlife. While there are some cities that have been overpowered by the surfing culture, Bentota beach is still a combination of local nightlife activities merged with the foreign influence. You will be able to dance to some exciting music and enjoy some delicious Sri Lankan food while holidaying here.


Enjoy the crystal clear waters

While Bentota is not popular for diving there are still some patches of the beach that have crystal clear water which is perfect for those who love diving and exploring. This is not a common occurrence that one can specify the time of the year but if you are travelling during the months of November to April it is best to ask the locals or the staff at your luxury resort such as Saman Villas for some details about diving in Bentota.


Experience trekking in Bentota

Apart from the beautiful beach, you can also enjoy hiking activities in Bentota as there are mountains that have not been explored or exploited due to overcrowding. If you are interested you can always sign up with a tour group or a tour guide to go on an outdoor trek in Bentota.


Indulge in some delightful food

Food is one of the most exciting parts of Sri Lanka and if you are not able to experience it then you have not made the best of your trip to the island. While different types of food such as Kottu, String hopper biryani, and fried rice have become popular each location is known to make it with its own twist. So while you are enjoying Bentota and its beaches keep in mind to try out some scrumptious food as well.


Explore the city on a cycle

Bentota is not as populated and developed as the city of Colombo so you can explore the city on foot or by bicycle. You will see many locals using cycles as their mode of transportation which is not only environmentally friendly but also great for one's health and now there are city tours for tourists which are done with a bike ride.


Experience the sunset

When you are tired from trekking, exploring, or cycling the best thing you can do is to go to the beach, relax with a cool Thambili drink and witness the stunning sunset. This breathtaking view of the sun being engulfed by the Indian ocean is an experience you must witness at least once if you are spending time in Bentota Sri Lanka.
