Bentota has been a popular beach destination among tourist due to its proximity to Colombo and Galle. Travelers will love the wide sandy beaches on the southern end of Bendota, with calm water making it perfect for diving and water sports activities for tourists. Bendota beach is divided into two sections, one being the still water of the Bentota lagoon and the other being the “Paradise Island” on the north.
Windsurfing, water skiing, wake boarding, banana rides, tube rides, jet ski rides, river fishing are all river based activities offered by the Sunshine Water Sports Center. However for those seeking more thrilling adventures there are boats which can be hired for deep sea fishing, diving, snorkeling and beach based activities of surfing and body boarding are also available.
The feeling of sitting on a tube, being dragged across the water at lightening speed with the wind blowing through your hair while you scream in excitement is a pleasure that has to be experienced at least once in your lifetime. The thrill of a group of people astride a large inflatable banana being hauled across the the water and toppled (at your wish) is also quite exciting.
They also have boats which take you on deep sea fishing expeditions where you can indulge in fishing. If you are more adventurous then you can jump in to the ocean and snorkel.
