Separated from Bentota by just a bridge, Aluthgama is a scenic beach resort with the flair of a small market town.
Markets, shops, hotels and guesthouses of all categories and, last not least, endless white beaches are making it a holiday destination for all budgets.
The very unique location between lagoon and Indian Ocean allows for all kind of water sports as ell as romantic cruises along the Maadu river.
The beaches are un-crowded and there is always a breeze, making even a mid-day stroll on the beach very pleasant.
The beach also has a turtle hatchery and if you are lucky you may spot one of these slow and gentle creatures.
The guesthouses and small hotels bordering the lagoon are offering unique privacy since nothing can come between you and unrestricted sea and sunset view..
