One of the most scenic beach resorts in Sri Lanka, Hikkaduwa features a number of long white sand beaches with palm trees and gentle waves.
Venture out of the city with trips to Bentota Beach (in Bentota), Colombo (Ganeshism Studio Gallery, Galle Face Green, &more) and Kosgoda (Victor Hasselblad Sea Turtle Research & Conservation Center & Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Hikkaduwa Beach, view the masterpieces at Genuine Batik, see the interesting displays at Community Tsunami Museum, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Turtle Hatchery Hikkaduwa.

To see where to stay, traveler tips, and tourist information, refer to the Hikkaduwa trip planner.

Palm-fringed beaches with golden sand, turquoise water, and a colorful coral reef are enough to draw any beachgoer to Unawatuna, but there's plenty to do off the beach here as well.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Unawatuna: Mirissa (Dolphin & Whale Watching & Mirissa Beach). And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Jungle Beach, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Weherahena Buddhist Temple, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Sea Turtle Farm Galle Mahamodara.

To find more things to do, reviews, maps, and tourist information, go to the Unawatuna travel route planning site.
