Hi there,

Both east coast and west coast have good beaches. In June-September east coast is perfect (Nilaveli, near Trinco, and Arugam Bay) and in November-March west coast. For west coast, anything from Wadduwa upto Unuwatuna will do; South coast for that matter also has nice beaches but water can be a bit more rough in many seasons.

As for hotels, the relevant section of tripadvisor gives most details. As for choice in the 2+ star segment: Hikkaduwa, Bentota and Kalutara have most choice. Unawatuna on the contrary has solely one 2-star place and many many guesthouses and sometimes posh villas.

Regards,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
