If Sri Lanka has one all-out Beach Resort, Beruwala is it. Just north of Bentota, It’s a plum spot for serious beach lovers thanks to its dazzling combination of Sun, Sea and Sand. The beaches are really something else. Soft golden sand that feels like warm talcum powder underfoot. Glant palm fronds rustling lightly in the tropical breeze.
Beruwala is the starting point of the 130km long stretch of beach. In the past few years great strides have been made in the field of resort development and thus the beach is ideal for bathing almost for the whole year.
