Sri Lanka – Where is the party?

Updated: Jul 7, 2021

I recently went to Sri Lanka for a friend’s bachelorette party. First, we thought of the cliché places – Goa, Thailand, Bali, etc. But we were planning a Christmas time vacation and realized all these places would be overcrowded and over expensive. Hence, we planned to explore the West coast of Sri Lanka. We were a group of 5 girls flying from Delhi for the hen party! We rented a chauffeur driven car for our road trip from Colombo Airport – Unawatuna – Galle – Hikkaduwa – Bentota – Colombo Airport. In short, all sun, sand, beach, fun, and party – What else!?


1. Top party and food places in Sri Lanka

If you want to party in Sri Lanka – Hikkaduwa and Unawatuna are no doubt, awesome beach party destinations for you! In Sri Lanka, every night there is a beach party at a different place. So, make sure you find out the party place for the night.

Just go and ask anyone around – where is the party tonight?


Sharing the list of awesome party places and must visit restaurants, which we explored from 22nd – 26th Dec, 2017.

Happy Banana, Unawatuna | PARTY PLACE

Thaproban, Unawatuna | GOOD RESTAURANT

Top Secret, Hikkaduwa | BEST PARTY PLACE

Relaxing seating inside and party place outside! Made extra special due to Christmas eve. A party place with great food as well!

There was 1 more crazy awesome place adjacent to Top Secret, Hikkaduwa. Forgot the name but do check out! Basically, take a stroll along the beach for sure and then choose and explore places! 🙂


The best food in Sri Lanka with the best ever Coffee! The place gives a European street style cafe vibe. Best place to chill and eat. (They don’t serve alcohol but still amazing)



The best ambience, food and service but costly. Must try Calzone. Perfect for date night or a special celebration.

Unawatuna: Beach Front Villa

PERFECT BUDGET STAY for Friends (Private beach – Villa right besides it)

You’ll feel as if you are living on the beach.
