Though relatively laidback until fairly recently, there are actually plenty of things to do in Hambantota, especially given the current development drive. You can either be a part of the fun and games on the beach or simply enjoy the glorious atmosphere and calm surroundings. Some of the highlights of the things to do in Hambantota include gliding along the Walawe River getting a glimpse of the wild, or soaking in the warmth of the Mandunagala hot-water springs. Lazing around on the sandy beaches in this area too is an experience.
The Wild Safari Hotel Restaurant serving tasty Sri Lankan food at more than reasonable prices is a great option for a hearty local meal, but a must on your list of things to do in Hambantota is to taste the delicious home-made kalu dodol, a traditional sweet meat.Submit Inquiry
