Sri Lanka Beach Holidays
Enrapture yourself with the exotic charms of a Sri Lanka beach holiday
The island nation of Sri Lanka, formerly Ceylon, was famed through the ages as a land of foreign marvels; traders flocked there to discover its rare gemstones, colourful spices, and incredible fauna. Today the island is as mesmerising as ever, and rewards visitors who make the trip with amazing landscapes and beautiful weather. Make sure you take full advantage of one of the many four or five star hotels we have to offer to make the most of your Sri Lanka beach holidays to this magical isle.
Rich and varied history
Thanks to the island’s thousands of years of history, there are many ancient and sacred sights worth visiting such as the famous Sigiriya or the mystical Sri Pada mountain. Sri Lankan culture and cuisine are also worth travelling for and the country’s varied landscape boasts sprawling plains (perfect for a little elephant spotting!), steep canyons, and lush forests. That being said, one of Sri Lanka’s main draws for tourists is its stunning beaches.
The best locations for a Sri Lanka beach holiday
With hundreds of miles of beautiful beaches it can be hard to pick the best, but the famous Hikkaduwa inspires visitors from all over the world. Thanks to its turquoise waters and white sands, Hikkaduwa is one of the finest beaches in the whole Indian Ocean. The area is also one of the top locations on the island to snorkel or scuba dive, so if the sun bathing gets too much you can always head underwater! Alternatively if you are a wind surfing enthusiast, visit Arugam Bay Beach to take advantage of the watersports facilities available. If you'd rather be enraptured by Sri Lankan marine life then take a trip to Dondra Beach to enjoy some whale and dolphin watching. There are tours available year round to let you see these majestic creatures in their natural habitat.
