While you can enjoy lazy days on the sand in Sri Lanka, if you are after more adrenaline-fuelled fun, there are plenty of water sports to try as well. Here are some of the best.
Perfect for those who have a need for speed, jet skiing gives you a chance to “fly” across the ocean surface. Be it as a passenger or on your own, jet skiing is a whole lot of fun and can be enjoyed at many properties along the south coast.
Windsurfing & Kitesurfing
These two water sports in Sri Lanka give you the chance to experience the raw power of the wind. When it comes to places to visit in Kalutara where you can try windsurfing, Avani Kalutara Resort is amongst the options to consider. For those interested in kitesurfing, Kalpitiya is a key destination to head to.
Snorkelling & Diving
The waters surrounding the island have diverse coral and marine life which can be seen on snorkelling and diving excursions. The Bar Reef off Kalpitiya and the Pigeon Island Marine National Park are ideal for snorkelling, while those engaged in diving can look forward to exploring submerged wrecks too.
Banana Boat Rides
A water sport the whole family can try, banana boat rides require no experience. Just hold on tight as a speedboat pulls you along on an action-packed and speedy ride full of thrills… feel free to belt out screams of delight!
