Family activities in Bentota

Apart from the unlimited fun at your Bentota villa’s own private pool, the whole family can also find a whole lot of other interesting things to do in the area. We recommend checking out Madu Ganga River Safari. This mangrove safari tour will take you up close and personal with the river’s massive ecosystem. And if the kids still can’t get enough of animals after this, we suggest visiting the Kosgoda Turtle Conservation Project next. See these adorable creatures in their natural habitat, watch them lay eggs in the sand, and learn a thing or two about hatching.

Activities and points of interest in Bentota

The best place to have a sneak peek into Bentota’s history is at Kande Vihara, a Buddhist temple located on top of a hill. Also, apart from river cruises, the island is known too as a hotspot for water sports. Step out of your Bentota villa and head straight to Cinnamon Island to surf, scuba dive, wakeboard, and more. And after a long day of exploring the island, the best way to cap it off is by indulging in a relaxing spa treatment. Head over to Sahana for some of the most rejuvenating experiences in the island.
About an hour drive from Bentota, you will find Galle, a lovely town that has made its way to the Unesco World Heritage's List. If you love colonial architecture and all things traditional, definitely make a day trip to Galle when you are in Sri Lanka.

Bentota’s restaurants, cafes & bars

Sri Lanka is a great place for curry and rice lovers. For an authentic yet affordable Sri Lankan cuisine, we highly recommend Randholee. Right before deciding to go home at your villa in Bentota, make sure to pass by Pier 88 River Bar as well for some good food, great beer, and awesome view of the river bank.
