The endless golden sand beaches trimmed with palm trees, the sparkling blue Indian Ocean waters, and the warm and tropical year-round climate is just perfect for whenever you want to enjoy the beach. These are actually just the basics…and we’ve definitely got them right. But if you’re looking for a deeper experience on your beach holiday with a mix of relaxation, privacy, seclusion, fun, excitement, adventure and an opportunity to truly mix with the culture of the country and its people…then Sri Lanka is possibly among one of the few countries in the world with the ideal beach holiday concoction.
Sri Lanka’s best coastline extends from Negombo in the northwest to Trincomalee in the northeast, passing miles and miles of beautiful beaches in the south coast and the deeper south of Sri Lanka.
Our southern coastal belt has many pockets of absolutely gorgeous flat and wide sandy beaches. The lagoons found in this area make safe all-year round swimming. Bentota has possibly the best beach in the entire south coast, while Hikkaduwa is famed for its corals and water-based activities like diving and snorkeling.
