Holidays to Sri Lanka
For a relatively small Island, there are a truly amazing variety of attractions for the visitor to see on a holiday to Sri Lanka.
Having shrugged off its turbulent past, it is now possible to travel freely throughout the whole country, including the less visited north and east coast regions, which have some of the Island’s most untouched beaches and can be the surprise highlight of a tour to Sri Lanka.
Sri Lanka’s 833-mile coastline is full of delightful beaches, which range from fun and sociable to quiet and undeveloped. Its wildlife is utterly astonishing, too – you can encounter hundreds of species both on land and underwater, thanks to world-renowned National Parks and excellent diving all around the coast. The island also has a startlingly rich cultural heritage, with dozens of impressive ancient sites open to the public.
Add to this a warmly welcoming people, irresistible cuisine, year round tropical sunshine (the island has a dual monsoon system), and a calendar of lively festivals, and you have one tempting offer. It’s all relatively close together, too – Sri Lanka is only nine hours drive from tip to tip.
