"The Hambantota beach boasts a picturesque landscape and an abundance of parking spaces for visitors. It is important to note that swimming in the sea is not advised due to the powerful tides. Unlike other popular beaches in Colombo and Galle, this area is free from pesky merchants. However, on Sundays, local vendors gather to showcase and sell their goods on the beach."
