Top beaches in Sri Lanka
The island’s coast is fringed with over 1300 km of idyllic beaches. Take a timeless colonial train ride along the coast to see the lovely stretches of gold sand washed with aquamarine waves and chill out on the sunny Indian Ocean coast.
There is a beach for every type of traveller, from action packed Bentota to tranquil Nilaveli. Mirissa is a beachside village with a fine stretch of sand and world-class whale-watching. Hikkaduwa Beach has great sand and surf. Passikudah and Unawatuna are often considered one of the best beaches in Sri Lanka. Arugam Bay boasts lots of local wildlife and a chilled-out atmosphere.
Nature conservation has a long history in Sri Lanka. Many of the national parks and reserves date back to colonial times and earlier. These protected areas cover almost fifteen percent of the island’s land area, from the high-altitude grasslands and waterfalls of Horton Plains National Park to the coastal wetlands of Bundala.
The National Parks of Udawalawe and Minneriya are known for herds of elephants, leopards, wild buffalo and sambar deer. Yala is also a popular and rewarding national park with the highest concentration of leopards anywhere in the world. Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage has the largest herd of captive elephants in the world. You can bottle feed the baby elephant or get wet during bath time!
Welcoming people and flavourful food will make your visit very special. Enjoy a performance of Kandyan dance, watch the stilt fishermen or rejuvenate with traditional Ayurvedhic medicine. Sri Lanka’s ancient system of healthcare uses herbal therapies to promote holistic well-being. Don’t forget to try a therapeutic massage or a herbal treatment.
Head to the misty hills of Sri Lanka to see one of the spice gardens or watch the harvest of Ceylon tea leaves. Nuwara Eliya (“Little England”) is home to the country’s oldest tea plantations.
