Bentota is a popular beach resort on the south western coast of Sri Lanka. About 65km from capital Colombo it is on your way to the southern capital city of Galle.

The setting of this lovely resort, surrounded by the Indian Ocean, the lagoon and the Bentara River, makes it an ideal destination for nature lovers as well as water sport lovers. The soft undulation of the river provides the ideal condition for novice windsurfers and the lagoon and the ocean waters provide the best conditions for all types of water sports. The area is also famous for the ancient Sri Lankan art of healing known as Ayurveda and the famous local intoxicator `Ra`, a beverage made out of fermented coconut nectar.
