Hikkaduwa is located around 100 Km. South West of Colombo
and the Fishery Harbour is at the heart of City. Hikkaduwa
is a very attraction tourist center due to the presence
of submerged coral in the near shore area.
The large number of boats anchored in the Marine Sanctuary
before the harbour was constructed have shifted in to
the harbour now.
Even though the harbour was constructed very recently
there are large number of boats anchor in the basin.
