Explore the glorious, unspoiled beauty of Sri Lanka’s stunning south-west coastline. Sail around the seas surrounding Bentota and nearby Beruwela, which not only boast picturesque coastal views but are also home to a variety of small, untouched coves and islets which are fantastic to explore, and spend some time swimming, snorkelling and paddle-boarding in the invitingly azure waters that surround you.
Set off from Beruwela Harbour at 9am on a luxurious catamaran and wend your way along the coastline, stopping off at secluded coves, before you reach a small islet where you get leave the boat and try snorkelling, paddle-boarding or swimming – life jackets can be provided for those who are not confident swimmers, and one of the experienced crew members can join you in the water should you wish. After this, take a speed boat to a nearby island on which stands a majestic lighthouse, marooned in the middle of the sea. Walk up to the lighthouse, passing beautiful tropical flowers and a coconut plantation, and be rewarded with incredible views of the surrounding ocean. Finish the morning with a cool drink and some snacks as you sail back to shore, relaxing in the sunshine all the way.
