Bentota is a wonderful resort coastal town, with a laid back and easy-going vibe along with plenty of adrenaline-pumping choices for those who seek it. Here are some fun things you can see and do when you’re in town.
Relax on the Beach
One of the biggest draws in this seaside town is the glorious stretch of pristine beach. Check into any one of the boutique hotels in Sri Lanka, to make sure you have unfettered access to the sand and the sea. What’s a holiday down south without ample access to a beautiful beach?
What better way to have some fun on Holiday than to try your hand at water sports? Bentota’s reputation for adrenaline-pumping activities precedes itself. Resorts such as Saman Villas can curate a perfect afternoon of fun and adventure for its guests, taking away the hassle of planning.
If you wish to explore the heart of the river, hop aboard a river safari and explore the mangroves of Sri Lanka. Mangroves are not only beautiful; they are essential for the conservation of the coast and do wonders in terms of preventing coastal erosion.
Explore a Garden
If you prefer to stay on the land and hope to do some exploring, make sure you check out Brief Gardens. This is not your run of the mill garden and it is also considered to be a landscaping gem. It was the former home of landscape architect Bevis Bawa and is now open to the public.
