"visit Bentota and its area on..." Sri Lanka Favorite Tip by inuit

Sri Lanka General: 197 reviews and 204 photos


Favorite thing: visit Bentota and its area on the west coast of Sri Lanka. The coast line is covered with thousands of coconut palms and create a wonderful shade when you lie on the beach. Some of the hotels actualy located among the palms. You can also watch locals climb up and pick up the coconuts or 'milking' the palm of its nectar for making a brandy.

Fondest memory: Staying in a very expensive hotel north of Bentota and taking a photo of the gurad walking with his umbrella among the palms.

Review Helpfulness: 1.5 out of 5 stars
