Hotels Hikkaduwa

Хиккадува, Шри-Ланка The main street of Hikkaduwa

Hotels in Hikkaduwa dense chain stretched along the coast on both sides of the main road to Galle road. Only a few hotels are situated at a respectful distance from the beach, but it is unlikely they should be considered as an option for accommodation in this resort.

You can choose a hotel or Guesthouse on the beach, and on the other side of the road. The fundamental difference in this, as the road runs very close, just cross it and you will find yourself on the beach. However, in some places, the building is so dense that you still have to find a passage to the beach. Oh and you need to understand that this is a pretty loaded A2 highway linking Colombo and Galle, and go it must with caution.

The Beaches Of Hikkaduwa

Пляж Хиккадувы, Шри-Ланка The Hikkaduwa Beach

Although Hikkaduwa is known primarily as a beach resort, in fact, the beaches and the sea is more suited to surfers than swimmers in calm water. Almost always, especially in the summer (low season, see the seasons and the weather in Hikkaduwa), here waves. Of course, it's not that bad and if you want to swim at any time, just not so comfortable.

However, in the Northern part of the resort (in fact, it is the center of the city, near the bus station and railway station) there is a small Bay National Park, Hikkaduwa, she Hikaduwa Beach or Hikaduwa Coral Reef. It is protected by coral reefs, strong waves do not happen here. Therefore, if the presence of waves you fundamentally interferes with (e.g., children), it is better to stay in this part of the resort (beach NAT.Park Hikkaduwa on the map), or even to look for another place to stay, for example, to go to Unawatuna.

Пляж Хиккадувы, Шри-Ланка

In General, the beaches in Hikkaduwa stretch along the whole of the resort, and continue far beyond to the North and South. As befits the genre, where a lot of people and the infrastructure is developing, initially, a beautiful pristine beaches become dull coastal strip. Hikkaduwa is no exception, and with the development and growing popularity of hotels and restaurants, more and more come to the beach. If the South of the resort area, the beach is quite comfortable and wide strip of sand (this beach is called Naigama), the closer to the center (the area called Wewala), the strip of sand narrows and in some places disappearing.

Considering all the above, we would recommend to choose a site for a hotel and stay closer to South beach Naigama. But you need to be ready to strong waves. If you want to find an almost perfect beach, you need to go look for this outside of the resort area. And in the North and the South is full of wonderful and deserted beaches with hotels. But the infrastructure there is almost none there, so you will have to choose: either to settle on a wonderful beach outside Hikkaduwa off the beaten path, or to settle in the center and be content with the existing beaches and to the good beaches to go to during the day.

AirBnB reliable long current site, with regard to the safety of your money. Otherwise personally I have when working with AirBnB more negative experience. One evening came with a 5-year-old son to Sochi, and the owner of the booked apartment out of reach. Support by phone, the work involved, but offered simply to return the money, and then type to understand myself. Knowing the rules, I pressed and they agreed with the suggestion that I book this hotel not more expensive than 50 bucks, and they compensate me the cost. All has worked out well, but time and nerves I spent the car. Also twice was that the trip was canceled for 1-2 before the arrival, several times pulled with confirmation and also at the last moment canceled. Well the prices are certainly higher than directly from the owners to remove. ...

Hello Natalia! You just go in a good season, when the wind is not strong, the waves too small, there is nothing to advise. If the waves are really afraid, then go to Unawatuna, where the waves almost the whole year low. ...

I read an article about comparing the City with the Golden Sands and was very surprised by the phrase about the lack of nightlife in Hikka, there it just is and party season are held each day in different bars. Was not in Bentota but have read that it is very restful there is no activity. Was in Hikkaduwa 3 times, in 2012, in August, was out of season and do little work, and no night life was not. But Konda came in the 2013 14 season and then life in Hike raged. Many tourists from all over the world, bars, discos, surfing. It was very cool. In Hicke very convenient, all the shops, restaurants, bars, hotels and guest houses are close by. In the centre everything in walking distance. Now located in induruwa and a wolf howling sitting in a hotel, because out of nowhere, activity is zero, and the nearest Bentota, which is also nothing special, you need to go 15 mins in tuktuk through the city for $ 16. Rent mopeds there is one local small shop, few cafes on the beach, several hotels and all. Good place to relax for couples,and my friend is already bored, I want to Hikkaduwa. ...

Anutik how it's written:
Here (in Hikkaduwa) there are several bars with modern music, right on the beach with occasional small parties, and on Fridays the hotel Vibration Hotel is very progressive disco night.
But this is not the center of night entertainment, for this you need to another country to go. ...

It is difficult to answer objectively, in someone else's head because you will not get in. I personally Bentota really thought of "suckage", as you put it, if you compare it with the Golden Sands. In Hikkaduwa's no crowd there, the surfers and hippies of all sorts, a lot of Russian tourists. Ie at least will have someone to talk to. But on the other hand, I don't know what is important to you, quiet beach and a nice hotel, or more a nightlife of Hikkaduwa. You get to decide. While on the other hand what prevents here and there: live a little in Bentota, then move to the beach, there are all nearby. On the bus or train to go absolutely anything for money, well or a taxi is also not expensive at all. ...
