Things to do
Balapitiya nestles in a beautifully tranquil bay, where fine sands unfold in front of you. Stroll along Shinagawa Beach and you’ll feel you’ve escaped from all the hustle and bustle of the world.
With lush rainforest and mangroves, Sri Lanka is justly known as a paradise for flora and fauna. And you can get up close and personal to some wonders of nature while you’re staying in Balapitiya. Take a river cruise in the Madu Ganga Biodiversity, and spot everything from tropical fish to crocodiles.
Meander down the Madu River and you’ll be able to meet the locals doing their thing. Watch the people work the land, stop for photos or even enjoy a fish foot massage.
