A tranquil coastal town just a short drive from Galle

Balapitiya

Back Back

For a peaceful oasis within reach of more lively spots, look no further than Balapitiya, a tranquil coastal town just a short drive from the trendy beach town Hikkaduwa, Bentota’s wide sandy bays and historic 17th-century Galle Fort. Balapitiya’s beaches are largely safe for swimming between December and March – although currents can be strong, so be sure to make your own assessment on the day – and there are some sheltered coves which can be enjoyed year-round. The staff at your hotel will be best placed to advise you on the swimmable spots during your stay. Balapitiya is next-door to Ambalangoda, a centre for traditional Sri Lankan arts and crafts – art and culture enthusiasts will love our tour of Ambalangoda’s art workshops with an award-winning craftsman.
