red = visited places blue = hotels
Waikkala - Chilaw
First to arrive in Sri Lanka and get used to the temperatures - for 3 nights we was into a quarter in Waikkala. From here we undertook a day trip to Chilaw.
Waikalla is located north of Colombo 10km to Negombo on the west coast. One finds a gorgeous beach with big coconut trees. Swimming is recommended because of the strong surf only at selected locations.
Kandakuliya - Kalpitiya-peninsula
A total of 6 nights we stayed on the Kalpitiya Peninsula in the village Kandakuliya in a very nice hotel right on the beach.
Never ending walks on the beach, swimming and in the evening fantastic sunsets - so we´re remembering the days on the Kalpitiya Peninsula. In addition, we undertook from here a visit of the town Kalpitiya, a safari in Wilpattu National Park, and a boat trip to dolphin watching and snorkelling on the reef.
Kandy and the Knuckles Range
The old king´s town Kandy and its surroundings was for 6 nights on our travel plan. Culture, trekking, safari, hiking - we had planned a few.
After the train journey from Colombo to Kandy via Palavi we relaxed first. The next morning we was picked up 7:00 clock to a 3-day trekking tour incl. Safari. Looking back: very exhausting, but also very impressive - we would repeat it at any time ...
Bentota has a beautiful sandy beach. We stayed for 3 nights in a small but nice hotel a bit away from the beach.
After the strenuous trekking trip we relaxed excellent in Bentota. The beach is gorgeous. Between Bentota and Aluthgama / Beruwela the Bentota Ganga flows into the sea. In Beruwela we visited the Kande Viharaya Temple-with its gigantic Buddha statue.
