Hotels and beaches 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
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.
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.
