Tropical Beach Apartment, Hikkaduwa

Overview

*** LOW SEASON RATES EXTENDED UNTIL 18 NOVEMBER 2014 ***

The Tropical Beach Apartment has direct ocean views through large sliding glass windows and is 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 the largest and most beautiful bay in the South West of Sri Lanka. The Beach House Apartment at Hikkaduwa provides you with a very comfortable base from where to enjoy everything that the area has to offer, such as surfing, diving, snorkelling, fishing or just basking on the beach in Sri Lankan sunshine!

Watching the last of the sun dip down into the Indian Ocean from the spacious balcony or take a stroll along the beach and sample some Hikkaduwa nightlife instead. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to see local fishermen hauling in their catch or later on at night, a turtle coming ashore to lay her eggs! Enjoy all the advantages that come with renting your own beach-front holiday apartment in Hikkaduwa and take everything else at your own pace!

The West-facing direct Ocean views from the beach front Apartment are simply stunning!

For the duration of your holiday in Hikkaduwa, you can expect to be treated like family as Chandana, the beach housekeeper, and Mahinda, our local manager, will be available to attend to your party's needs. Ayurvedic massages, surfing, fishing, diving and canoeing trips as well as BBQs and Hikkaduwa area and Sri Lanka-wide tours can all be easily arranged.

Hikkaduwa Area Information
Sri Lanka is a magical place of ancient Buddhist monuments, gorgeous beaches, lush green vegetation, clear blue skies, sunshine and friendly faces. The beach house apartment at Hikkaduwa is a great place to unwind, sample the local surfing and diving opportunities, and from where you can then start to explore this stunningly beautiful island.

Hikkaduwa is located 100km south of the countrys 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 and is populated by exotic fish and sea turtles that come ashore on this beach to lay their eggs.

Hikkaduwa: Surfing and Diving

Diving
The diving at Hikkaduwa is diverse and there is an abundance of marine life and dive sites to suit all levels of experience. Big groupers, barracudas, moray eels, dogtooth tunas, manta rays, lobsters & turtles are often to be seen just off the coast at Hikkaduwa. A large number of wrecks have floundered off the coast in this area over the years, adding to the range of dive sites available.

The diving season in the south west runs from November to April and there are a number of well-established diving centres from which to choose with Blue Deep being one of the best!

Surfing
Hikkaduwa is a very well known surfing destination on the international circuit and annually attracts surfers from all over the world. There are plenty of good surfing points and although most of them are reef breaks, none of them is risky since they all have a flat deep bottom. The wave size ranges up to 3 metres during the season. The main surf point has A-frame shaped waves, which can be surfed in both directions.

Stayed Thursday 23 January 2014 with Couple
Apartment is spacious and in very good condition. it was cleaned daily - which we didnt expect - at the beginning of our stay. Manger was easy to reach both by phone and in person, he visited the house practically daily. Nice sea breeze coolened the big terrace and apartment. moskito net above bed guaranteed moskito bite free night sleep. Apartment is located next to beach, but swimming on that part of the beach isnt usually possible due to big waves. Interesting attaraction was to follow how fishermen went to sea by their special boats. We joined them for a couple of times to draw the fishing net in. That was fun! On the other side is busy road which disturbed us suprisingly little. There is also a tuk tuk stand where from it is easy to catch a ride. On the terrace is a sofa and 2 sun beds, but sun shines ther only after midday. There are some beach beds in front of some restaurants/bars where you can stay for free. Walking distance is not too far. Nearest supermarket needs a tuk-tuk (at least if you have heavy bags to carry). Jus next to the supermarket is also a wine store which sold even cider. Apatment is easy to find. it is just next to Cinnamon Garden hotel, which every tuk tuk driver knew well. I recommend you to ask from the manager to organize a barbeque at the garden - it was really worth while.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and loved Hikkaduwa. The beach house apartment was great with beautiful views, and the location was perfect. Mahinda and Chandana were really helpful. We would definitely stay again and are actually thinking of coming again in April. Tamsin Davies and family from Dubai staying in the Apartment, Dec 12

About the owner
Working for an IT company with an office in Colombo brought me to Sri Lanka in the first place - back in September 2000. I was instantly charmed by the people, their culture and the fantastically beautiful natural landscape. Since then, I've split my time between living in Sri Lanka and the UK. As well as being my beautiful home and a fun source of income, the Tropical Beach House complex is my method of re-directing some Western wealth towards my less-well off local friends and so in turn to their family and friends.
