With an average depth of only 5 meters and magnificent gardens of exotic flowering corals in its coral reef, Hikkaduwa is an amazing city lying on the south-western coast of Sri Lanka. The beach is one of the main attractions in Hikkaduwa and is certainly one of the best in the island. Day and night, the Hikkaduwa beach is full of vibrance and energy as every little nook and corner has some story to tell, either of fishermen mending their nets after a night’s catch or the village kids enjoying a game of beach-volleyball or visitors tasting a delicious rotti for the first time from one of the rotti restaurants and so much more.
One of the other lesser known of attractions in Hikkaduwa is the Hikkaduwa Bird Lake replete with exotic birds, monitor lizards and all sorts of other creatures. Traditional sweet water prawn fishing is one of the exclusive activities on this Bird Lake.
The Seenigama Devalaya and the Meetiyagoda Moonstone Mines too are nearby attractions. In Hikkaduwa, there is never a dull moment as there are plenty of attractions within the city and in the vicinity too.Submit Inquiry
