it's a lovely beach and the stretch is wonderful....
The beach offers a wide scope for photo enthusiasts
But sometimes the stretch is lonely and tourists need to be wary ..
Stay close to where the crowd is
The sad part is there are lots of trash strewn around ....

This is really a good beach and you can enjoy walking in the evening. You can have a bath in the sea. You will feel refreshed.

I was over emphasized by my travel agent to visit Bentota Beach. Bentota is a coastal town in Sri Lanka, located in the Galle District of the Southern Province, governed by an Urban Council. It is approximately 65 kilometres (40 mi) south of Colombo and 56 kilometres (35 mi) north of Galle. Bentota is situated on the southern bank of the Bentota River mouth, at an elevation of 3 metres (9.8 ft) above the sea level. The name of the town is derived from a mythical story which claims a demon named 'Bem' ruled the tota or river bank.
The beach is full of rowdy Sri Lankan resident frauds trying to sell goods to you and snatch away your money. It is not advisable to visit this dangerous beach. Remain away from here.

Maybe it’s because we were here on the off season but they was quite a bit of trash. Also there was oil in the water so we couldn’t swim. I don’t know if the oil was a recent problem, hopefully so. It would have been very beautiful otherwise and the place was practically deserted.
