Bentota, about 60 km away from Colombo, which is one of the most visited cities on the island, with estimated 50.000 inhabitants.
The north of Bentota is connected to Beruwala and thus provides with its holiday centres a nearly connected coastline.
The village charms through its location between ocean and laguna. Situated between both villages there is Alutgama with the railway station, which is the junction to change to visit The Botanical Gardens in the middle of the island.
Bentota has many 5* hotels and is highly adjusted with the tourist in mind.
The river Bentota (Bentota Ganga), that builds the natural border between west and south provinces, is accessible with small boats
in a length of more than 70 km. A boat trip may be arranged by your Amal Villa staff.
