The next place on my Sri Lanka itinerary was Bentota. You can read my previous blog post of Sri Lankan journey here. Bentota is all about sun & sand. We had stayed at Cinnamon Bey Resort. The hotel is located at beach front, so we had access to beach 24*7.
Our hotel was surrounded by coconut trees and vast lawns. It all presented a beautiful picture for the eye. Most of our days were spent sunbathing on the beach or in the pool. The beach remains sparsely populated and has few eateries to enjoy local delicacies.
The rooms had private balcony facing the seaside & it gave us breathtaking views of the sunset & sunrise. Who doesn’t love such a view? There is also a Turtle farm nearby set up by the Turtle Conservation Project (TCP) in association with the Wildlife Department of Sri Lanka.
For our last day in Srilanka, we travelled from Bentota to Colombo. The day was spent in local sightseeing and shopping.
Places to visit in Colombo-
- Independence Square
- Odel Shopping Centre
Kelaniya Raja Maha Vihar
