About the neighbourhood
Dikwella is on the Southern Coast of Sri Lanka. It is a small town and The Lookout is situated 3 mins walk to the town. There are local markets on various days of the week - fruit and vegetable, fish and a range of local shops including supermarkets and banks. It is a 5 min tuktuk or 15min walk to the famous surf beach Hirikatiya Bay which offers surf lessons and board hire. 40 mins away is Mirrissa - a famous whale watching location boasting the only location in the world to have the Blue Whales all year round. Rekawa is 50mins away and this is famous for Turtles! Most people that come find once they are pool or beach side they don't want to leave The Lookout to do any of these amazing activities as they relax and unwind ...
Getting around
The best means to get around is by car or van depending on the size of your group. Tuk tuks are readily available and are cheap, fun and an experience to enjoy! As there is so much to see and do in Sri Lanka, we recommend a car and driver (we can organise this for you on request) as this gives you the flexibility to take day trips or to enjoy more of Sri Lanka after or before your stay with us. The newly finished highway has significantly reduced the drive time to the South and comes straight to Matara. From here it's an easy 40 mins drive to our door. Hiring a scooter is also an option for the brave!
