Around and about.....
Hikkaduwa is appx. 450 rupees "tuk-tuk" ride away. Here is what made Sri Lanka famous....its long sandy beaches..! There are more than 50 places to eat and drink, and three beach night clubs enable you to dance the night away. Relaxing during the days and bustling at night. Full PADI courses are available – or just spend the day snorkelling around the coral. Glass-bottom boats can be hired to take you out to see the abundance of tropical fish swimming in the crystal clear water. Nearby about 2 km from Gonnapinawala is a large lake where nature is the word......built alongside the waterfront is the “nature resort” restaurant where you can bird watch with a beer in your hand and sample the locally caught crabs for lunch. Along the coast from Hikkaduwa is Seenigama where turtle’s can by found laying their eggs on the beach? Dodanduwa, 2 miles from the cabana, you can hire a small boat to explore in lagoons or Bata for the locally caught fish. Water skiing is available at a nearby lake and canoeing also is close by. A further 3 miles away is the famous village of Mitiyagoda where moonstone gems are mined. The small shop by the mine is terrific value and they will make whatever piece of jewelry you require..! Further out – 30 minutes in a tuk-tuk, is the historic town of Galle with its 16th century Dutch Fort surrounding the old part of the town. International cricket is played on the idyllic ground and plenty of shops to wander around. A chance to dine at the ”light house” hotel and maybe stay to see the kandyan dancers perform.
