As an island of such diversity, Sri Lanka has a beach resort to suit every type of traveller, budget and season.
The west coast has long been established as a tourist destination and has a range of accommodation to suit everyone from boutique hideaways to all inclusive resorts all within fairly easy reach of the airport. The peak season for the west coast is during our winter months of December to March, when the weather is at its’ driest making it an ideal winter sunshine holiday.
Just a bit further down the coastline, the south coast also has its’ peak season during December to March. The resorts here stretch from the colonial town of Galle to Yala National Park with luxury resorts being established along beautiful stretches of coastline. This stretch of coast is also home to the iconic stilt fishermen and is well worth the slightly longer drive from the airport.
Holidays to Sri Lanka’s east coast are becoming more popular as the area opens up to tourism and travel becomes easier. As well as having the island’s best beaches with calm seas and wide, picture-perfect sands, the east coast is in peak season during our summer months of May to September making it an ideal destination as a honeymoon or for those limited to travelling during school holidays.
The main beach holiday destinations on the east coast are Trincomalee to the north, Passekudah in the middle and Arugum Bay to the south. All of these locations have excellent hotels and beach resorts. Outside of these areas though are miles of untouched and undeveloped coastline, perfect for exploring.
Here are a selection of some of our tours which feature a beach stay during the itinerary, however, a beach stay can be added to the beginning or end of most of our tours.
