Touristy and unappealing

Hikkaduwa is the epitome of beach vacations for massive affordable tourism
Back in ‘70s was Sri Lanka’s hippy hangout and the budget alternative to Bentota resort hotels.
Unfortunately it is a live proof of how unplanned tourist grow can lead a place to being completely unattractive. Nowadays the beach has been limited in a thin strip of sand overshadowed by buildings.
On the other hand being touristy means more accommodation and dining options. But it won’t get my vote for beach holidays as long as nearby Mirissa offers such a better and lovelier beach.
