Hello, the Bentota beach is about 5 minutes by boat - and the hotel provide a courtesy trip to the beach for guests. You can also get there by road, Tuk Tuk. The river is quite fast moving and I wouldn't personally recommend a swim in there, unless there is some supervised activity, for health & safety reasons. Fortunately there is a very nice swimming pool available at the hotel and of course the sea by Bentota beach.

Hi Bob. I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have regarding The Waterside. No where in Sri Lanka is far by Tuk tuk so no the Waterside is not far from a town. As you sit having a sundowner you watch the sunset across the river and the town is just across the river. We did not actually go into the town however I do know there is at least one supermarket and there are bound to be bars and restaurants. There is quite a large ex pat community in this area. The restaurant and The Waterside is excellent. We were asked what we would like for dinner and replied that fish would be lovely as we are right on the coast. That evening we had a tap on our room door and there was one of the staff with a couple of fish on a dish. The fish had been caught earlier in the day and were so fresh. He asked how we would like them cooked and as we wanted them cooked in different ways we ended up with a whole fish each. Cooked to perfection. The staff are lovely and very helpful. If you want to go to the town they will arrange for a tuk tuk. Make sure you get one with a meter or ask the staff how much it should cost to get where you are going. The Waterside also has a very good wine selection. The story behind The Waterside is very interesting.
Just down the road from The Waterside is a wonderful temple which is not well advertised at all but well worth a visit. Again the staff will tell you how to get there. It is within walking distance.
The people of Sri Lanka are the friendliest and most lovely in the world I think. I'm sure you will enjoy your stay at The Waterside.
I hope I have been of some help with my answer and please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any other questions.
Have a great holiday.
