Fishery Harbour - Hikkaduwa
   
 

Background
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.
