As we start our journey from Colombo Fort railway station to Hikkadua, the happening beach destination in Sri Lanka, we could not but blame our luck for not being able to take the train which was unbearably late and as it arrived there was hardly any space to put our foot onto it. Taking a taxi to Hikkadua although not as beautiful option as train but was the best option in this situation.One might confuse Hikkadua for Goa as it seemed to be a mini-version of it.. Narrow lane with both sides dotted with shops selling souvenior and swim-suits, roads filled with foriegn tourists and road-side eateries, Beautiful clean beaches and beach-shacks with trance music playing in the back-ground.

On Day 2 we left for Hikkaduwa beach, which is one of the best beaches in Sri Lanka and is famous for snorkeling and diving. This beach did live upto its expectations.We did snorkeling and saw various fishes and a huge turtle as well, clarity of the water wasn't at its best due to rains but i would recommend this to everyone. In fact if possible, go for diving instead of snorkeling as you get to see a whole new world when you dive deep.
