    Nice beach hotel

    We arrived in the quiet season and don't think there was anyone else staying there. The restaurant was also closed. so I can't comment on that. The rooms were large and were really nice. Mosquito net over the bed was more than adequate and for once was free of dust and holes. Good location and right on the beach. The staff are also very attentive. I would stay here again.

    Biggest, cheapest, badest, bestest rooms on the beach

    We scoured the beach, up and down for a relatively cheap A/c room, ensuite too. This place had the best sized rooms, all with four poster beds and the staff / family are really friendly, unlike a few other places nearby.

    As it is off-peak, the restaurant was closed so can't comment on the food, but the menu had the standard fare of Sri Lankan and Western. The beachfront here is also where the sea is at it's calmest, although it is about 1-2kms from town, so no ATMs nearby!

    Good stay

    We enjoyed our stay at Neelas. It is low season so it is a bit like a deserted beach but the staff were really friendly.
    Watch out for the guys giving massages on the beach. They look pretty seedy to me but I saw some girls having one which they seemed to enjoy?
    Unfortunately they didn't have curry and rice so we can't really say the food was that spectacular, next door they had string hoppers for breaky which we opted for.
    Bathrooms could do with an update and the mozzies are pretty annoying so be warned. We had to ask for a mozzie net as our room didn't have one.
    All in all, a good place to stay.

    Beaches, turtles and whales

    ... probably 10 times a day so the next morning we were ready for the beach again. We are early risers and at 8am we were already strolling on the beach enjoying the light breeze and lack of people. What immediately caught our attention however were small marks in the sand that we identified as baby turtle tracks. We were quite disappointed to miss this happening as there were no sight of any baby turtles but later we noticed that our guy with the sea weed for the turtles collected few of ...

    This place is amazing! Main surf spot in Sri Lanka, it's just a long beach and plenty of beach side bars and rotti shops. Today was all about relaxing and sitting in the sun! At least until the evening where we met two Aussies and had a few ...

    Day eighteen

    A travel blog entry by zoegilbert1990 on Oct 07, 2013

    So we woke up at 5.45am and headed to the harbour for 6.30!! We went on a whale and dolphin watching tour where they told us they had only seen one whale and over 1500 dolphins!! We thought they were exadurating quite a lot!!! So after a sickness tablet and moving some Chinese lady so we had priority seats on the top of the boat we set off where our driver waved us off as ever!! The sea was horrendously choppy and I began to feel dodgy as hell!! Sam then became nervous as ...

    The sun beats down as we tread the dusty track out of the bay, cutting a line close to buildings and occasionally stopping to give way to the tuk tuks rattling by. We stop short of the main road and take some shade in a small cafe tucked under apartments above. The freshly needed dough is still being pressed into shape when we order our rotis. A simple, delicious bite which sets us up for the bus south and as we wait at the side of the road, starting to melt, we are ...
