i am coming down to srilanka for 10 days during last week feb and early march.i plan to spend 3 days in a beach and 1 in mirissa for whale watching,1 in tangalla.i am split choosing between bentota/hikkaduwa/unawatuna.To brief you guys, i have never done snorkelling or scuba diving.i dont know how to swim :( . given these i would like to see some coral reefs and sealife.
1)i went through forums and have read people being able to snorkell even if they dont swim.is it ok.which of these beaches is recommended.i have read beaches are bit short and at times rough with strong currents.
2)even if i am not able to do water activity it would be nice to lay low in azure blue waters and turtles to play with.lol. a good pic with turtle would do :P
