Around and About

The Bentota River is a sanctuary of quiet, teeming with lush tropical life. From playful fish that bob about the calm waters to Brahminy Kites that circle the sky, the river is a spectacle of colour. It also abounds with aquatic birds such as Cormorants and Kingfishers.

Aptly christened the ‘water sports capital’ of Sri Lanka, Bentota is ideal for surfing, skiing and windsurfing. Partake in a boat ride in the Madu Ganga River of Balapitiya, taking in its aquatic life and stop by at the scenic tiny islands which still pay tribute to traditional life styles and rituals.

The colonial Fort of Galle, artisanal hamlet of Ambalangoda, laid-back coast of Induruwa and buzzing beach wonderland of Hikkaduwa are nearby attractions to bask in during your stay in Bentota.

Violet stars pierce the velvety darkness that engulfs the river. Cool breezes race across, whipping the water into dreamy white caps. Sunset cruise ends here, at the rising of the moon.
