Beaches and water sports in Sri Lanka: Relaxation on a dream beach & diving in a fascinating underwater world
The 5 star hotels in Sri Lanka are mostly located directly on the beach. No wonder, because who wants to miss the beautiful sandy beaches, the fantastic sea and the great beach atmosphere? All around the island state there are beaches and small bays everywhere that invite you to relax, sunbathe and to take part in various water sports activities, depending on your interests. Beautiful beaches are for example the lively Hikkaduwa Beach in the southwest of Sri Lanka, the Mirissa Beach as a perfect place to relax and the Arugam Bay as a popular surfing beach on the east coast. Diving and snorkelling will help you discover the beautiful underwater world of the Indian Ocean. A possible dive site on the beach Unawatuna is the Gala Pita Gala, a big rock with 12 to 15 meters’ visibility. There one usually sees exotic sea dwellers such as banner fish, white spot puffer fish, oriental sweetlips, black fin vagabonds and saddle-head puffer fish. The main diving base of Sri Lanka is still located at Hikkaduwa Beach, including a diving school for all newcomers to the area.
