Beruwala Travel Guide: 62 reviews and 124 photos

The "sister villages" Beruwela and Bentota offer the classic package for beach lovers. A gorgeous stretch of honey-coloured sand ,backed by gently swaying palms and lush tropical greenery. Beruwela holidays offer also great swimming, made all that much better by the sheltered bay with its natural breakwater of islands just off shore.Yet in monsoon-times there are strong currents and special attention is mandatory !
When you travel to Bentota and Beruwela, there are several attractions apart from the beach. The roads leading into town are lined with shops, selling handicrafts and jewellery. There's a reasonable choice of bars and restaurants for the evenings. And if you fancy a change of scene, close by is the bustling little town of Aluthgama, famous for its lively fish market.
There is a great number of convenient and recommended day-trips. You'll find some of them a few lines below !!

    Hello again! Great tips and photos here... Sri Lanka has interested me of late. But for now, I'm still working on my Scotland page. And mangoes really are lovely... mango season is starting soon :-) Greetings from the Middle East /Jessica

    interesting to read about the sandflies and about their dangerous ladies, while their men are always peaceful, just like in our ordinary life !! ;-))

    Hope the both of you are getting well pampered and rejuvenated by the aurveda treatment here! Yes-the spice garden and tea garden trips we too found out were a bit of a rip off.

    I have just returned from Aluthgama, and I asked at least 10 tuk-tuk drivers about location of a Hindu Temple (Kovil) in Aluthgama with no result. Do you mean the hindhu shrine in Kande Vihare? All buddhist temples have hindu gods. Hans
