Hotels Hikkaduwa

Хиккадува, Шри-Ланка The main street of Hikkaduwa hotels

Almost all the 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 goes very close, just cross the road 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.

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. In the Northern part of the resort there is a small protected Bay where the waves are not that strong and there are always many "swimmers". If the presence of waves you fundamentally interferes with (e.g., children), it is better to look for another place, for example in Unawatuna.

The beach stretches along the whole resort area and extends far beyond it 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), then if you move North, closer to the center (the area called Wewala), the strip of sand narrows and in some places disappearing.

A little more to the North, almost in the center, is another beach – Hikaduwa Beach or Hikaduwa Coral Reef. This is the same conditional Cove where the sea is often calmer and there is a marine Park Hikkaduwa National Park. There is really water, is sometimes easy, and there are even conditions for snorkeling, but the place is so crowded, including the boats (there are all the boat trips and excursions), for a comfortable stay especially should not count.

Considering all the above, we would recommend to choose a site for a hotel and stay closer to South beach Naigama.

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, and some of them you can find 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 a wonderful beach to get outside of the city.

I hope so) Tell me if this street to go to the beach if there's a café on the beach where you can eat and relax on the sun loungers?

Hello Algeta! Looked at the situation of your Villa on aibnb, and if there's all without cheating, the place is great. Just opposite the beach, everything is there. Cafes everywhere along the road there, so no problem. If you really want a lot of cafes, you'll walk a little closer to the conditional center is to the North, i.e. above the map. ...
Algeta 10 January, 2017

Ideally, we need a place to 3 minutes and we're at the beach, and there lay under the canopy and the whole day swimming, eating and drinking. We have and child is different mode and to pack up and go somewhere to eat and then back to the beach uncomfortable))). Or is it just my dreams?))))) ...

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. ...

Good day! The first time we fly to Sri Lanka . Mid Jan-mid Feb. Want to combine sightseeing with a beach holiday, I'm afraid to get on the wave. Advise something in my experience? Thank You, Natalia ...
admin October 22, 2017
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. ...
