Bentota out of most beach destinations in Asia has placed itself in the top 10 beaches of Asia in the year 2010. Located next to Beruwala, in the South Coast of Sri Lanka, Bentota River attracts many families to try out the exiting water sports. Apart from Bentota’s pristine beaches it is also famous for wind surfing, para-sailing and jet skiing. Thrilling river safaris along the river grant visitors access to cinnamon plantations, nature resorts and temples which are further inland.
An unmissable experience would be a visit to the residencies of two of Sri Lanka’s most famous personalities. Geoffrey Bawa, the internationally renowned Sri Lankan architect built his country estate Lunuganga in Bentota, while his brother Bevis Bawa an equally famous landscape artist designed Brief, a 5 acre landscaped garden. Both are open to the public and a visit to the Bentota would not be complete without a visit to Lunuganga and Brief.
