|Hikkaduwa Beach - Hikkaduwa|
The most popular beach area, Hikkaduwa has a varied choice of beach and sea. Quite famous for its 'coral sanctuary', a shallow area enclosed by a reef is full of multi coloured corals, and colourful tropical fish. A short distance southwards, as the reef fades out, there is a wider beach with good waves for board or body surfing. Glass bottomed boats; masks, snorkels and flippers can all be hired here. Enjoy the underwater delights but we urge you not to be tempted into buying or encouraging the sale of coral.
