Tucked away along the shores of Sri Lanka, the laid-back coastal town of Beruwela offers an ideal escape with relaxation and recreation amidst the sun, sand and surf!

Planning Your Trip

The town can be found along the island’s southwest shores and is only around 56 km from the commercial capital, Colombo. You can easily get here by car or make use of public bus or train services. In Sri Lanka, beach resorts are popular accommodation choices and Beruwela has some great options in this regard.

The Beach Beckons!

One of the town’s main allures is the beach which provides the perfect spot to laze on the sand. Properties right by the shore such as The Eden Resort & Spa make ideal places to stay at for hassle-free beach access; exciting water sports such as jet skiing, water skiing and banana boat rides can be enjoyed too.

One of the key attractions in Beruwela is its harbour and is worth visiting especially in the mornings. At this time, you can see colourful fishing boats, as well as witness fisherfolk, bring in their catch which is then sold at the market. It makes for an interesting experience and offers great photo opportunities too.
