The southwestern coast is at its best from November to April. It is also home to some of Sri-Lanka most famous and most frequented beaches. Coconut tree-lined white sandy beaches and breathtaking sunsets is the ultimate romantic getaway. The beautiful calm water of the Bentota river flowing into the Indian ocean is ideal for water-sports. The coral reef that surrounds these coasts is a diver’s paradise. The south also has its own traditional recipes for its abundant fish and seafood as well as its traditional masked dance-drama.
