Sri Lanka is one of the mind blowing islands of the Indian Ocean. All year round thousands of tourists make their way to this island paradise. Famous for its beaches, Sri Lanka is no stranger to those who prefer a good deal of fun in the waters. Beach Hotels in Sri Lanka has always been a popular choice of accommodation among most tourists who visit the country. Among them one that has gained a significant amount of fame in the recent past has been Citrus Waskaduwa. Located on the Western Coast of Sri Lanka the hotel has a set of well appointed rooms some of which offer a panoramic view of the ocean beside it as well as a spacious garden and pool for the guests.

Water sports have rose to fame in the recent past and are enjoyed by both tourists as well as locals alike. Not too far from Waskaduwa is one of the hot spots for water sports. Bentota is one of the first places along the coast to open up water sport centres. Most of the centres here utilize the river that run across the town known as the Benthara Ganga (River) as well as the sea. Activities available in the region are carried on with the guidance of trained professionals. Some of the activities include, jet skiing, wake boarding, banana boat rides, ring rides among many others. Along the river by the Bentota Bridge one can find many of these sports centres.

Going further down South in Hikkaduwa there are various other water related activities such as scuba diving, snorkelling as well as glass bottom boat rides as Hikkaduwa is a town blessed with one of the most beautiful coral reefs in the island.

A trip to the southern coast of the island would not be complete without a few of these adrenaline pumping activities.
