The trip promises to be thrilling, replete with huge waves that break over your head. Visitors to Bentota have the option of single-ring rides or sofa rides, both of which are suitable for people of any age.

Visitors can either bring their own equipment or rent it. Travelers interested in learning about or trying windsurfing may do so with the help of Bentota’s instruction and private sessions.
More water activities are available for your enjoyment. Then, we’ll travel to the Galle Coast to see the renowned Galle Fort.

Day 3 – Travelling back to Colombo
On day three, we will be travelling to Colombo. We will leave after lunch and book you into the hotel in Colombo.
Day 4 – Sightseeing Colombo
On the fourth day, you’ll go on a Colombo city tour . We will first visit Gangaramaya Temple after breakfast. The Gangaramaya Temple, one of Colombo’s most important temples, mixes traditional and contemporary design features. It is located on the Beira Lake and was completed in the late 19th century. In the heart of Colombo, Sri Lanka, is where you can find the Beira Lake. It used to encompass a little more than 1.65 km2 (0.64 sq mi) of land, but because of various circumstances, it has subsequently shrunk to just 0.65 km2 (0.25 sq mi) now. The lake fulfilled a number of functions during the Portuguese, Dutch, and English colonial periods. It continues to go by its Portuguese name. It is connected to a variety of complicated canals, which facilitate moving products easily around the city and suburbs.
After that, we’ll head for the Galle Face. Galle Face is a 500 m (1,600 ft) long urban park in the center of Colombo that covers 5 hectares (12 acres). Despite the fact that the ancient Galle Face Green encompassed a far bigger area than what is now visible, Governor Sir Henry George Ward created the promenade in 1859. The Independence Memorial Hall, also known as the Independence Commemoration Hall, is a national memorial in Sri Lanka that was built to honor the day on February 4, 1948, when a Ceylonese-elected legislature reclaimed total authority of the nation. It is located in Colombo’s Cinnamon Gardens near Independence Square, often referred to as Torrington Square. They also hold the Independence Memorial Museum. The Old Colombo Dutch Hospital, commonly referred to as The Dutch Hospital, was constructed in Sri Lanka during the Dutch colonial era and is said to be the oldest structure in the Colombo Fort neighborhood. It is a historical structure that is now a retail and dining destination. You may get some food and buy souvenirs here. Afterward, we will head back to the hotel.
