Akurala Beach is a beautiful beach in Hikkaduwa, about 5 km from the site of the Telwatta Bird Sanctuary. It is a sandy beach with a coral reef barrier that creates a swimming area with calm and shallow water. Spending quality time in the evenings, especially at sunset, is a popular destination for locals and tourists alike.
But be sure to be careful as the coral barrier on this beach has eels at certain times. Also, the tire, which is tied like a swing to a coconut tree bent towards the beach, has been able to attract a lot of tourists. There are many restaurants around this beach.
