Calm seas during the season from November to April make Bentota Beach ideal for snorkelling, diving, sailing, wind surfing, water-skiing and deep-sea fishing on a traditional outrigger canoe. If speed is one of those cravings of yours, then Bentota offers jet ski and water-ski opportunities on the lagoon.
