Hikkaduwa, Galle District, Southern Province
The Tropical Beach House is a true beachfront property superbly located right on the beach at Thiranagama just south of the centre of the popular Sri Lankan resort of Hikkaduwa, right in the middle of one of the most expansive and beautiful activity beaches in Sri Lanka. The beach house at Hikkaduwa provides you with a very comfortable base from where you can enjoy everything that the area has to offer, such as amazing sunsets, surfing, diving, nature watching or just basking on the beach in the Sri Lankan sunshine!

Watch the last of the sun dip down into the Indian Ocean, whilst having a fresh seafood BBQ prepared for you. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to see the local fishermen hauling in their catch or a turtle coming ashore to lay her eggs! Later on, perhaps take a stroll along the beach and sample some Hikkaduwa nightlife. Enjoy...

We just arrived in DK yesterday after a lovely month in Sri Lanka. Especially our stay in The Tropical Beach House, Hikkaduwa everything was perfect and Mahinda was a great help whatever we asked for. The swimming pool was always clean and well maintained, and our two boys loved it. - The guard of night gave us a good sense...

Wow. . what a location. A stones throw from the center of Hikkaduwa and bang in the middle of the bay. No rip tides and very little road noise considering its proximity. The pool was well maintained and by all accounts new. The beds were comfortable and came with mosquito nets. I have a 4 and 6 year old and...

We spent 10 nights at The Tropical Beach House, Hikkaduwa over Christmas 2016. It is a very special place. We were a family of 6 adults gathering from around the globe for a Christmas with a difference (from the Scottish weather). We had a dream holiday. The house has 4 good double rooms including one in its own little cabana...

About the neighbourhood
Hikkaduwa is located 100km south of the country's capital, Colombo. The area is well-known for its coral sanctuary and the proximity of wonderful scuba diving sites to explore. With its unique beach culture, Hikkaduwa has long been the most popular diving and surfing area in Sri Lanka. In the centre of Hikkaduwa, a lagoon also creates a beautiful and safe snorkelling area. Further south, where the currents are stronger, surfing is the dominant water activity. The impressive coral reef runs just offshore. After watching the last of the sun dip down into the Indian Ocean, relax with a seafood BBQ prepared for you on-site or take a stroll along the beach and sample some Hikkaduwa nightlife instead.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Colombo: 110.0 km
Railway: Thiranagama: 0.0 km
Ferry: Galle: 24.0 km
I can also arrange airport pick up for you (between Rs10,000 and Rs14,000 depending upon the vehicle your require and payable locally). For the same rate, we can arrange a vehicle (with a driver) for overnight tours, if you want that. In both cases, the payment would need be made directly to Mahinda, my beach house manager, on arrival.

Otherwise, if you are making your own way to the beach house and driving down from Colombo, you will pass through Hikkaduwa and continue on for Thiranagama. Start looking out for kilometre markers. The beach house is between the 101km and 102km markers from Colombo. You will need to phone Mahinda to arrange for him to meet you.
