Hikkaduwa to where!?

HI fellow travellers!

I will be staying in Hikkaduwa this weekend (Thurs & Fri nights). I then fly out of Colombo at midnight Sunday night so I am looking for some advice on somewhere to move to for Saturday night which is not too far from airport as I don't want to have to waste alot of time traveling. Looking for something local/offbeat - not really into fancy hotels! Maybe a nice wee village in between?

Also if you have any tips with regards to must-do's around Hikkaduwa area I'd love to hear those!

Thanks and have a great day!

Emma

Nothing too exciting that's closeby to the airport. So consider the option of driving from Hikkaduwa straight to the airport. It should be about 2-2.5 hours at most at that time of the night.

Mount Lavinia/ Colombo to the airport is about 40/60 minutes and Bentota is also about 2 hours.

Hi,

Well the closest is Negombo. Ten to fifteen mins drive to the air port. There is beach as well. Chillaxing. 🤗

Go to Mount Lavinia. Not too far from the airport, especially during traffic free night time. The beach is better than in Negombo and there are mang restaurants nearby.
