The perfect beach
Feb 2020 • Couples
Came back here for the second year as this is my favourite beach in the world. Although the waves are powerful the natural breakwaters lead to a wash that reaches 20 metres so everyone can get in. Swim further out and you have regular 3 m waves. Great fun. The beach bars, particularly Bamboo do juice, food and beer. I’ve travelled to Thailand, Malaysia, Africa and other countries and I love this beach. Perfect sand. The deserted beach at Rekawa is lovely but you cannot swim due to the rip-tides.

Small and peacefull

Small but nice beach. Do not expect swimming. Just be in the water, because of high waves. For our 2 years old child dangerous, but manageable with an adult. Benches for free if you get a drink. I recommend this place.

Good beach with local vendors
Jan 2020 • Couples
We were staying at the attached resort so naturally we spent a lot of time on this beach. It’s a small but quiet beach that we found fun to swim in. The water is a bit rough but easy to get in and out. Very fun if you have a boogie board.

Only drawback were the local vendors set up here. It’s nice that they are there to serve cold beer (500 standard price) and provide a lounge chair and shaded place to sit. But the constant pushing for you to buy something, or fighting for your service is a turn off. The only vendor I found to not hustle you is to the very far right when you first enter the beach(faceing the ocean.) They seem to be the “new guys” on the beach and it shows.

Excellent Beach in Tangalle Goyombokka
Jan 2020 • Couples
Excellent Beach with safe bathing and with supervised child friendly waves. Nice beach restaurants for refreshments and food to choose from. Even over Christmas and New Year not too busy.. Mainly because it's not accessible by tourist busses.

Lovely beach but being small was overly crowded for us, maybe others like that.
Otherwise looks the part

One of the few beach you can go in the water
Dec 2019 • Couples
Lovely bay with a few restaurants who provide long chairs if you eat or drink at their property.
Nice soft sand beach with wave but shallow at the beginning so you can actually enjoy the water. Bot too busy so very enjoyable. No vendors.

Check the weather
Dec 2019 • Couples
Because when we went it was windy and the waves were really big. Not ideal for swimming or snorkeling.

A few small restaurants were open but dont go the one called Phoenix, right where the river flows into the ocean. I found a piece of metal in my food and the owner seemed not to care, but offered a 35 rupee discount, pretty ridiculously for something that could have seriously harmed me.
