We stayed 3 nights. After staying in great places all around Sri Lanka we approached the beach Cabana with some trepidation, but fell in love with it immediatly.
The beach is exceptional as is seeing anyone else on it! The sea is magnificent but highly dangerous with 3 metre crashing waves- not safe to swim. The Cabana is basic with the unusual hardwood trap door down to the basement bathroom, the door is very heavy- take care. The bathroom once down is good- and big. Had a great nights sleep here, quiet, the only noise was the waves.
Food was good, as were the drinks. The staff were very friendly and helpful- service a little slow- but no problem. good hammocks.
There is a brackish lagoon next door ( not the main lagoon) which has some really good birds.
-waders, stilts, sandpipers, terns, and the usual passerines.
wished we had stayed longer-- if only we had known
