Beautiful Hikkaduwa

Facinating Nature

Hikkaduwa is situated 100 km from Colombo City or 140km from Bandaranayke Intl Airport towards the south of Sri Lanka. The area is well-known for its coral sanctuary and the proximity of wonderful scuba diving sites to explore. With its unique beach culture, Hikkaduwa has long been the most popular diving and surfing area in Sri Lanka. In the centre of Hikkaduwa, a lagoon covered by a coral reef creates a beautiful and safe snorkeling area. Further south, where the currents are stronger, surfing is the dominant water activity. The impressive coral reef runs just offshore and is populated by exotic fish and sea turtles that come ashore on this beach to lay their eggs.
