Protected from noisy Galle Rd by the sluggish sweep of the Bentota Ganga, the ribbon of golden sand that makes up Bentota beach is a glorious holiday sun-and-fun playground. While it’s primarily dominated by big package hotels, it also has a number of smaller places catering to independent travellers. There are more such places in Aluthgama, a small town on the main road between Beruwela and Bentota. Many of the pricier places to stay listed here also have respected Ayurveda centers.
Aluthgama has a raucous fish market, local shops and the main train station in the area. Induruwa doesn’t really have a center – it’s spread out along the coast.
