With nearly 1600 km of palm-fringed coastline, Sri Lanka is the ideal destination for sun worshippers. Whether it’s windsurfing, kayaking, yachting, water skiing, scuba diving or just lazing around for the perfect tan, Sri Lanka offers it all.
Two monsoon winds bring rain to two corners of the country at different times, which makes a beach holiday in Sri Lanka a year-round prospect. The north east winds make the south western coast sunny and the sea calm from November to March; while the south westerly winds make the East Coast waters quiet with constant sunshine.
The pick of the beaches in the south includes Tangalla, Beruwala, Mirissa, Bentota and Unawatuna where you can enjoy the facilities of chic boutique hotels and explore the glowing coral reefs.
Sri Lanka’s southern beaches have long been discovered by the international traveller, but the east coast is yet to be fully discovered. The most popular among these beaches is Arugam Bay, a mecca for surfing enthusiasts in the region. Uppuveli beach is also open to the sun seekers now after three decades of civil war.
On the Western corner of the country to the north of Colombo is the Negambo lagoon. Its beaches and lagoon, famed for lobster harvesting, are an old favourite with local and foreign visitors.
Sri Lanka is famed for its ancient Buddhist ruins, including the 5th-century citadel Sigiriya, with its palace and frescoes, and the sacred city of Anuradhapura. Its flavourful cuisine reflects its history as a maritime hub and cultural melting pot.
