Crowed, dirty and ugly beach. Unacceptable behaviour of tourists who are feeding, touching and moving the tortles who are living there. When people will learn that touching wild animals can kill them by transmit them diseases ?? You can find more beautiful beaches everywhere on...More

Over crowded but it is coming into peak season. A fair amount of pollution on the beach but good to see a life saver on patrol

We visited to see turtle point and feed the giants that come right up to you in the shallows and you can hand feed with seaweed. Was an amazing experience to see a 150 year old green back turtle so close

Stay within the coral area for a safe swim, and snorkel with beautiful fish , and curious turtles! Go further up the beach, in the direction of Galle for surfing.

A glorious stripe of sand and surf that seems to go on forever. We found it pristine clean and a joy to walk. Less so for swimming as the currents constantly shift. The surfers didn’t care!

The main beach area is very easy to spot, we hired all the equipment from a little office on the beach. We haggled them down by 30%! So worth a go.
