Located in the southwest of Sri Lanka, Beruwela is a charming coastal town. Beruwela is a small resort town in the southwestern coastal belt of Sri Lanka. It is marked as the first Muslim port settlement in the country and was set up by Arab traders in the 8th century. Since it is just 56 km south of Colombo and has a good beach, it becomes a popular excursion destination. The recent development of resorts in the area has added to its popularity. See the fresh catch brought by the colorful fishing boats early in the morning, stroll over the idyllic markets and enjoy one of the longest beaches in Sri Lanka. While the center of Beruwela is a great way to explore the local town and pick up some unique souvenir items, you can then relax on the beaches or explore the surrounding quiet and peaceful areas.
