It´s hard to leave the beautiful beach here in Hikkaduwa.
But you should, because Sri Lanka has so much more to offer. From Our travel desk you can book round tours all over Sri Lanka. The best way to travel is with a private car/van with an English speaking professional driver. 😊 This will give you the best possible experience!
And the beach is still there when you return!
