You cannot miss this beach as they are so nice and clean.. except few parts where there are alot of people. Otherwise if you are staying in any guest house, you will be able to experience your own private beach front.

Excellent beach with good snorkeling right off the beach and giant sea turtles swimming right up to the shore. Excellent swimming area. Good restaurant options on the edge of the beach.

For best experience- find the hotels with entrance from the Hikkaduwa-Galle main road and the other end is facing the beach. A cool and calm place with a chilled beer watching the waves will make your day!!

The beach is nice, and within yards you can see lots of tropical fish if you can snorkel. You don't need anyone's help to see the fish, or for them to be fed. So beware of touts offering trips in glass bottom boats and snorkelling...More

The area is lovely and it is great to walk along the beach. However, the long stretch where the restaurants and bars are located, as well as hotels with sun lounges. Is extremely dangerous and unsafe for swimming. The beach around the point has a...More

One of my fav beaches. Very beautiful. The waves can be very big though, so it’s not safe for small kids. The main bit near Citron hotel is calmer.
