Sri Lanka is among the most visited South Asian destinations in the world. The country offers numerous destinations with a variety of things to do and see. Hikkaduwa is one such place that attracts foreign tourists as well as locals. Hikkaduwa Coral Gardens is a major highlight of the town.
Hikkaduwa Coral Gardens
Located at a distance of 98 KM from Colombo, Hikkaduwa Coral Gardens are a haven for divers and snorkellers. While snorkelling and diving are the most popular activities, tourists are also offered glass-bottomed boat rides.
Types of corals
Staghorn coral, Elkhorn coral, and Brain coral are three of the coral types that make up the reef, and living among the corals is the green turtle.
Things you can do
Boat rides, surfing, snorkelling, and diving are all possibilities, and you can also feed the turtles.
If you are planning to snorkel, visit the gardens from 9 AM to 12 PM. December to April is the best time to visit for tourists who want adventure – although, during this time, the accommodation prices tend to go up.
Hikkaduwa is a world-famous tourist destination, which means that the accommodation options are aplenty. A Hikkaduwa resort is the best choice for tourists, but you can find a variety of choices here; Hikka Tranz by Cinnamon, for instance, is only five minutes from the gardens.
