Tropical Beach House Hikkaduwa. Perfect Location!

Rental Home -
3 Bedrooms , 3 Bathrooms , Sleeps 6
Hikkaduwa, Galle District, Southern Province
The Tropical Beach House is a true beachfront property superbly located right on the beach at Thiranagama just south of the centre of the popular Sri Lankan resort of Hikkaduwa, right in the middle of one of the most expansive and beautiful activity beaches in Sri Lanka. The beach house at Hikkaduwa is offered on self-catering terms and provides you with an unfussy but very comfortable base from where you can enjoy everything that the area has to offer, such as amazing sunsets, surfing, diving, nature watching or just basking on the beach in the Sri Lankan sunshine!

Watch the last of the sun dip down into the Indian Ocean, whilst having a fresh seafood BBQ prepared for you. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to see the local fishermen hauling in their catch or a turtle coming ashore to lay her eggs! Later on, perhaps take a stroll along th...

I’m glad that you enjoyed the view, it is indeed stunning, as many previous guests will attest. I’m glad to read that you found that it was cleaned to a high standard. However, I’m not really certain what you mean when you say the house...More

Tropical Beach House well-exceeded our expectations! Initially we thought it would be too far away from the main tourist hub of Hikkaduwa, but how grateful we were to come back to the peaceful tranquility after a day of fun in the sun at main beach....More

We spent four nights at the Tropical Beach House in Hikkaduwa, and it was absolutely ideal for our purposes. We were two families (total of four adults and eleven children ages 1-9), and had plenty of space for sleeping, playing, and relaxing. The house is...More

About the neighborhood
Hikkaduwa is located 100km south of the country's capital, Colombo. The area is well-known for its coral sanctuary and the proximity of wonderful scuba diving sites to explore. With its unique beach culture, Hikkaduwa has long been the most popular diving and surfing area in Sri Lanka. In the centre of Hikkaduwa, a lagoon also creates a beautiful and safe snorkelling area. Further south, where the currents are stronger, surfing is the dominant water activity. The impressive coral reef runs just offshore. After watching the last of the sun dip down into the Indian Ocean, relax with a seafood BBQ prepared for you on-site or take a stroll along the beach and sample some Hikkaduwa nightlife instead.
Car not needed
How to get there
Airport: Colombo: 62.1 mi
Railway: Thiranagama: 0.1 mi
Ferry: Galle: 10.6 mi
I can also arrange airport pick up for you (between Rs12,000 and Rs16,000 depending upon the vehicle your require and payable locally). For the same rate, we can arrange a vehicle (with a driver) for overnight tours, if you want that. In both cases, the payment would need be made directly to Mahinda, my beach house manager, on arrival.

Otherwise, if you are making your own way to the beach house and driving down from Colombo, you will pass through Hikkaduwa and continue on for Thiranagama. Start looking out for kilometre markers. The beach house is between the 101km and 102km markers from Colombo. You will need to phone Mahinda to arrange for him to meet you.
