The best time to go is in the evening to witness the stunning, golden sunset. Waves can get too rough making it unsuitable for swimming.

This beach was over the road from the shops where we had paused for refreshments. Overcast and windy on the day but still a number of people enjoying the beach area and adjoining promenade and grassed area.

This is another patch of beach popular with locals. A good beach to go for a walk in the morning or evenings.

A nice calm beach to spend an evening. Get crowded in weekends. You can also visit the pigeon island temple as well via over the sea bridge. Plenty of shops around to grab a snack or some ice creams.

A fair stretch of beach for tourists, warm water and a good spot to enjoy the sun. Must watch the tide and the currents

It's a beach which is beautiful only near to that famous small island with a buddist temple . If you are in Matara this island is a must visit. Easy access with a bridge.

Nice gentle sloping sandy beach. Can take bath, or just sit our enjoying the view or breeze, or take a stroll. Good walkway nearby with many food vendors. Decent children play area as well with many jungle gym, swings, and slides. You can go to Church (toward back) for restrooms if needed. Nearby island temple and rope bridge is good too.
