I am trying to plan a trip in Sept.  I want to know how accessible are the breaks?  Do you need to hire a boat or can you just rent a room and walk out to the breaks?  Thanks

concerning hikkaduwa and aragum,mostly all the breaks are within easy paddling distance.
at hikkaduwa the break is literally 20-40m away depending on the swell size.(a hop really) and at aragum,it's a point so thats also quite close.there are other breaks around both places that i didnt see,but i think generally you'll be fine without a boat. you might want to think about booties though of you're worried about reef entries.
