If you are looking to base yourself at a beach while on holiday in Sri Lanka, then here are some compelling reasons why Bentota Beach is the place for you!
Chill by the Shore
Located along the south coast, this idyllic stretch of shore is perfect for some family fun or an intimate escape for couples. 5 star hotels in Bentota can be found right along the coast and offer hassle-free access to the beach; laze on the sand, dine by the ocean and soak up the laid-back island vibes.
Be it on the ocean or nearby river, Bentota has earned a reputation for being the country’s premier water sports hotspot. Resorts the likes of Cinnamon Bentota Beach offer trendy activities like flyboarding, while all-time favourites such as jet skiing, water skiing, kayaking and banana boat and donut rides can be enjoyed too.
The beach offers the perfect setting for some sublime spa healing when in Bentota. Resorts generally have their own spas where you can look forward to Ayurveda-based therapies as well. From reviving massages and facials to rejuvenating full-body treatments there’s plenty of holistic healing in store.
If you can tear yourself away from the beach there are unique experiences on offer too. Head off on a cruise along the Bentara River, discover the secrets behind cinnamon peeling and toddy tapping, learn the art of traditional puppetry and drumming or visit the scenic Lunuganga Estate; all this and more awaits!
