Product Description

A 45 min drive south from Colombo, along the costal road, you'll find Balapitiya, a small, picturesque village with golden soft beaches. A great destination for those who are looking for the "real Sri Lanka", away from the main-stream tourist hotspots. While Balapitiya still seems "untouched" by mass tourism it’s only a short drive away from Bentota, one of Sri Lanka's major attractions. Sweet water lagoons and the Madu river with their amazing flora and fauna are making Balapitiya also attractive for ECO tourists and bird watchers.
