Hikkaduwa is a popular city amongst tourists eager to enjoy the beautiful beaches that Sri Lanka has to offer. This tourist town is well-experienced with what tourists want, so you can arrange almost anything from swimming, diving and fishing to water-sports like water skiing, wind-surfing, jet-skiing and tubing.
With so many hotels/restaurants within walking distance of each other, you never have to eat at the same place twice. A short walk along the beach will take you through at least 5 restaurants, and the seafood is fresh and delicious Sri Lanka cuisine at every one of them. The night life is also quite lively during tourist season, and you will be able to meet many people from all over the world and swap stories of your travels.
