Best Water Sports to Try Out in Sri Lanka – Are You Ready for it?

Adrenaline pumping, shrieking and heart-thumping rides are the best kind to partake in – and Sri Lanka has plenty of water sports to choose from!


Thanks to the island’s numerous water bodies, from the glistening ocean to the murky river and lakes around the country, kayaking is one of the most common activities. If you’re staying at a resort in Bentota, you’ll be in luck as Bentota is located near the river and sea! Resorts located on the river bank and near to the sea such as AVANI Bentota Resort & Spa gives guests the best of both worlds! Enjoy kayaking between the lush mangroves and still waters of the Bentota River.

Scuba diving

Scuba diving in Sri Lanka is an enriching experience offering the diver a myriad of sea life to gawk at. The best diving spots are at Hikkaduwa, Arugam Bay and Trincomalee.
