Hi. We (Husband, 3 yr old kid, me) are staying in Hikkaduwa in Aug second week. Sadly I read all the good things about Bentota after booking 4 nights in Hikka. So now we are planning to make a day trip to Bentota from Hikka. Need your help with the plan:
1. How to get to Bentota from Hikka? Will a bus be ok (with kid)? Or better book a taxi. Should we book a full day taxi? How much will it cost?
2. I am thinking: Reach Bentota by 11 AM. Spend some time on the beach. Eat at a restaurant, preferably beach side. Do a boat trip on Bentota river. See the Buddhist temple. Visit Bevis Bawa garden and back to Hikka by 6 PM. Is it feasible. Please help.
