Beruwala is located 55 km south of Colombo and 92km south of CMB Colombo Bandaranayake International Airport at Katunayake, Negombo. Beruwala is the very first main beach resort in the south western coastal belt that tourists visit when they travel past the beaches of Kalutara and Wadduwa located south of Colombo. 15km south of Kalutara is Beruwala. Immediately to the south of Beruwala is the fishing village of Aluthgama. Next to the village of Aluthgama, over the Bentota bridge is Sri Lanka‘s most famous beach resort: Bentota Beach.
Beruwala‘s broad and attractive beach called the “Golden Mile” is a pristine beach of golden sand, well sheltered by the palm groves that spread along the coastal stretch. The wide beach that basks in the glorious tropical sun from the direction of the ocean is well shaded with the lush greenery of the landside.
Beruwala has excellent water sport facilities such as water scooter rides, wind surfing, parasailing, water skiing etc. While the bay beach is safe for swimming in any month throughout the year, it also affords opportunity for Deep-sea Fishing and Wreck & Coral Reef Diving.
