Overview

 Beruwala is a very small coastal town you would come across on the way down south. It is considered the first proper beach resort town along the coastal belt as it the closest to the main city Colombo. Beruwala traditionally was mainly a fishing and trading village where the Arab traders would stop on the way and from their travels which has developed over the years into the busy little seaside town it is today.

The town of Beruwala is just after a smaller stretch of beach called Moragalla. Moragallla has a beautiful coral reef almost along the side of the main Colombo – Galle Highway. Not the largest beach but definitely one of the most beautiful since the coral reef has created many little pools of warm water where bathers enjoy themselves. A large number of local tourists you would always see by the road that have parked their vehicles and stopped for some lunch and a swim.

Right past Moragalla is Beruwala which has the resorts and the smaller guest houses which cater off budgets. Compared the rest of Sri Lanka seaside town, Beruwala is one of the smallest towns but within a compact area so much is available to do.

From kayaking to kite surfing, surfing to jet skiing all water sports are available in Beruwala. Also. A famous attraction in Beruwala is that tourists can fish with the local fisherman on boats or on stilts, as they require. This has rapidly caught on even amongst the locals and tourists flock from all over.

Beruwala also produces some of the finest local toddy which is an alcoholic beverage made out of distilled coconut flower. This has also caught on and lots of travelers going down the coast stop by for a drink on route and to purchase some dried fish.

Two more of Beruwalas finest attractions are the Beruwala harbor and turtle hatchery. The harbor is full of multi colored boats waiting to set sail during the day and at the turtle hatchery you will see some of the most remarkable turtles in the world.
