Hiriketiya Beach Sri Lanka – A MUST Visit Bay

Hiriketiya Beach Sri Lanka, also known as Hiriketiya Bay, is a stunning surf spot located in the South. Here’s all you need to know for visiting.

How To Get To Hiriketiya Beach Sri Lanka

Hiriketiya Beach Sri Lanka is located on the southern coast of the island, just next door to Dikwella Beach.

We jumped on the local bus from Mirissa to Dikwella as it’s super, super cheap and took around an hour.

The closest stop to Hiriketiya Beach, is still another 20 minutes walk from the bay.

Another option is to rent scooters for around 1000 Sri Lanka Rupees per day.

If you’re on the south coast don’t miss off Mirissa and Unawatuna from your Sri Lanka Itinerary.

What To Expect At Hiriketiya Beach Sri Lanka (Hiriketiya Bay)

Hiriketiya Beach Sri Lanka, also known as Hiriketiya Bay, is a small stretch of beach that curves around the outside of Dikwella.

With the curve forming a bay like shape it causes the waves to come in high, attracting many surfers to the area.

Arugam Bay is one of the most recognisable spots in Sri Lanka for surfers. Although many people head to Hiriketiya Beach Sri Lanka for a quieter scene. There are a lot less people around and it attracts a much more chilled crowd.

The tropical paradise – Hiriketiya Bay Sri Lanka

If you’re not into surf then Hiriketiya Beach is still a perfect little spot to chill for the afternoon.

With hipster restaurants and quirky cafes dotted along the beach, you can relax and have a great time watching the surfer in action and enjoy the good vibes.

We almost forgot to mention that Hiriketiya Beach has some of the softest golden sand we saw on the whole island. With palm trees hanging over the bay, Hiriketiya Beach really is a jungle paradise.
