Beaches, turtles and whales

A travel blog entry by jojo-a-lenka


... 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 ...

Tev and the whales

A travel blog entry by kirstytev


... I was fine which I am so pleased about! As we got nearer the harbour, a massive turtle went past. We stopped to watch, it was huge and was eating a jellyfish! Amazing! That night we had dinner on the beach, you can choose your fish from counters at each restaurant. We chose barracuda. Have never had it before but it was the tastiest fish I have ever eaten! The food here is so good. Rice and curry inland and fish on the coast. ...

Nothing but chilling

A travel blog entry by lhughes


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 ...

Happy New Year

A travel blog entry by guy.everton


... they are, but they retain their 'difference' - their standard of living, social groups and so on.

It was this knowledge that gave me my first truly memorable experience in Sri Lanka. Brontė called her favourite tuk-tuk driver and told him to take us to a nice, local kade (a family-run small shop/ bistro) for my first proper Sri Lankan curry. I didn't have my bearings at this point, so I've no idea where this was, but it was nonetheless ...

Paradise and the Festival of the Plastic Bowls

A travel blog entry by karl.and.kat


... Sumatra and Sri Lanka we finally crashed at a little piece of paradise- laundry had to be done, shoes repaired and tans worked on; but mostly a lot of napping and swimming in the pool. If there is one thing Kat and I can do well, it's nothing. We can spend weeks doing nothing and never get bored of it. It’s a burden we have to bear.

Unawatuna is a small headland that juts out into the Indian Ocean. As our guide books tell us, it forms a crescent shaped bay of ...

    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

    by (11 reviews) Melbourne , Australia Flag of Australia

    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.
