Sri Lanka is becoming a favourite among many a traveller, as many organisations have literally taken to the skies to satisfy the hunger of the adventure traveller. One such venture is the introduction of Paramotoring into the repertoire of air sports available in Sri Lanka.

Flying over the serenity of the Bentota Beach, the adventure buff can rediscover the majestic seaside hamlet of Bentota, while soaring 1,000 feet above the ground, along the coastline. Coupled with the mellow vibes of the town, the salty sea breeze and the blue sky above you, feel the adrenaline rush as you take in the breathtaking view of the coastline.

Providing some of the most awe inspiring images of the Paradise Island’s coastline, gliding high amidst blue skies with a team of professionally trained pilots, gives a different perspective of the seaside hamlet of Bentota; bird’s aren’t the only feathered animals that can fly and witness the majestic grandeur of the azure ocean on one side and the rustic tranquility of the coastal hamlet on the other.
