Delivery All items that are in stock will show a delivery timescale of working days. The Rough Guide is also very unkind about Hikkaduwa but that aside, it really is the better book I think and as I said before, you get a LOT more pages for your money.
You're right Sue, it does gives Hikkaduwa a pretty bad press. I have to say from the back of a car vantage point Hikkaduwa did look every bit as charmless as the RG suggested. Maybe I was missing something but whatever this was it appeared to be very well hidden I agree with you Chico, Hikkaduwa won't win many fans from the road, but once you are on the beach, especially at the Narigama end, it is a completely different picture.
And who could not fail to be charmed by the turtles swimming almost up to the shore at the reef sheltered beach nearer to Hikkaduwa town? I can understand why some people might need convincing at first glance, but Hikkaduwa does have an appeal and it offers a variety of things to suit a lot of different people.
Not many resorts can boast both excellent surfing and calm swimming within a ten minute walk of eachother and it's a great place for finding a cheap, cheerful guesthouse, proving there is still a resort for the budget minded traveller. I'm sure all that you say is true and I recognise that all this stuff is very subjective and that my experience of Hikkaduwa was fleeting.
However my first impressions were so very negative that I checked up what was written in the RG as I hadn't bothered to read that section previously. The writer was scathing and this probably not only confirmed, but inflated, my own impressions.
If ever I return to SL I will make a serious attempt to revisit without prejudice! Send PM. This topic has been closed to new posts due to inactivity.
