Coastal Resorts activities
Swimming and snorkelling
There's good swimming at any number of beaches along the south western coast. Excellent scuba diving, snorkelling and surfing are found at Hikkaduwa, and you'll find enjoyable snorkelling at Unawatuna, and sailing, windsurfing and water skiing on the Bentota River. For trekking, try climbing Adam's Peak or walking across the strange silent plateau of Horton Plains near Nuwara Eliya to see the 700m (2296ft) drop at World's End.
