Hikkaduwa

Description

Hikkaduwa is a small town on the south coast of Sri Lanka. It is located about 20km north-west of Galle. Hikkaduwa is famous for its beach and corals.

The first area to be developed for tourism, this is still one of the most popular of our beach resorts. Hikkaduwa is famous for its coral and sub tropical fish. The reef, which runs parallel to the shore and is only a few metres below the water, can be explored with snorkel and fippers, or in a glass-bottomed boat. There are several wrecks in the area which offer interesting dives. Scuba equipment and the services of licensed instructions are on hire from PADI centers. A little further down the coast, there's good surf for board or body-surfing. There is a generally a community of international surfers in and around Hikkaduwa.
