Got to say very disappointed, there are no sun loungers for sun bathing, no parasols for protection from the sun. The sea is fairly rough with undercurrent, so ideal for snorkeling and probably not children. Numerous dogs around , never caused a problem but not...More

Not very suitable for young children as it is quite a step beach. They are working on this and I do look forward to seeing the results.

Beach is not taken care of well. Full of dog poo and of-course lots of stray dogs. Sometimes they are barking or fighting spoiling the little serenity you feel there. Not my cup of tea.

This beach is long, clean and quiet, perfect for walking, sun bathing and swimming, be careful the waves are big

Great way to spend an afternoon walking on the sea shore as the sun sets. Sometimes you may even see cows wandering on the shore

A good beach and all the hotels clean their part of the beach. Cows wander along the beach at sunset going somewhere. The sea can be strong and should be treated with respect.

Hi. I would suggest you to eat at the hotel. Some restaurants outside do not serve quality food (Small places). The next best option is you can go to Avani Kalutara for your dining and spa. Avani and Anantara is next to... More

Of course. But it will be more expensive as, like all hotels in the world, they will take their commission. For example, transfer Colombo-Kalutara with any of the airport companies is Rp 7000.- the return booked with the... More
