Located in the southern coastal belt of Sri Lanka Bentota is known for its stretches of indigo sea and golden sands. It is positioned 60 Kilometers away from Colombo and can be easily accessed after a two and half hour drive. Like the naming of many other villages Bentota too derives its name from a mythical story, according to legend a demon call 'Bem' ruled the river which was referred to as 'tota'. The village of Bentota remains to be peaceful, making it the perfect beach sanctuary to escape into. Staying true to its location the village is renowned for water sports that exploit the lagoon, river and sea. When in Bentota visit the temples located within the village and delve into the culture and heritage of the southern coast of Sri Lanka and release a baby sea turtle into the ocean late at night and observe how it waddles its way into the sea across the sand.
